New York City Marathon TODAY + Brooks’ NYC Running Shoe


The New York City Marathon is this Sunday, November 2, 2014! Since the Big Apple is a bit far from Utah, it’s tough for us to take a bite of the action. Luckily, you can catch it all LIVE on TV and your mobile device.  Over 50,000 people will be running, including racing legends like Boston Marathon winner, Meb Keflezighi, and Kenyans Geoffrey Mutai and Wilson Kipsang, who claim this is their year to break the course record.

Here are the details on how to watch it from the marathon’s website:
