The TCS New York City Marathon is an iconic event, and there is always a variety of celebrities who run it each year. All the celebs we reported were planning to run finished. Here’s how some of your favourite famous folks fared in this year’s version of the world’s biggest marathon.
Admittedly, those outside the running world might not recognize him, but within the running world, Meb is an undisputed rock star. The Eritrean-born U.S. citizen is a four-time Olympian (he won the silver medal in 2004) who ran his first marathon in New York in 2002, and went on to win New York in 2009 and Boston in 2014. Meb raced both Boston and New York last year for the last time, completing 26 marathons, one for each mile of the race. This year he took it relatively easy, finishing in 3:10:34 and raising funds for the NYRR’s Team for Kids.
Congrats again to @TikiBarber for finishing his 9th Marathon!
