AUGUST SHOW HIGHLIGHTS INCLUDE:

  • Your swim, you bike, you run, then you’re done. In the ninth annual Nautica New York City Triathlon.
  • Coming up this November, the 40th ING New York City Marathon. RUNNING HD takes a look back at some of the celebrated years of the race.
    • 1980 – The 11th New York City Marathon. First time marathoner Alberto Salazar boldly predicts a sub 2:10 time.
    • 1994 – The 25th running. 31,000 starters leave Staten Island. But with a half mile to go, there were two at the front, and the real racing began.
    • 2005 – the 36th ING New York City Marathon. Now the world’s largest marathon, and for the two racing for the win, adventure of the highest order.
  • Rhode Island has always been a hotbed of running and it reaches it peaks every year in the Cox Providence Rhode Races where there’s an event for every body.
  • An Asics Great Moment. The ING New York City Marathon experience includes the Continental Airlines International Friendship Run, where 15,000 celebrate worldwide camaraderie.
  • New York City Triathlon race week bursts with activity.
    • One of the featured events…the Iams Doggy Dash. Bring your best friend along for a five miler around the park.
    • You could say the next generation already has a head start as showcased in the Huggies Diaper Derby.
    • Getting fashion down to the essentials, led by the Naked Cowboy, the Underwear Run turns heads in Central Park.
