New York Marathon

November 3, 2013 by  

New York Marathon, After a one-year hiatus, the New York City Marathon returns Sunday with a different priority: security.

Discussions about running times and numbers were put in the back burner. Officials shifted focus to numbers of a different kind: security cameras, bomb-sniffing dogs, baggage screenings and surveillance helicopters.

The 47,000 runners will race through five boroughs for the first time since the Boston Marathon bombing, which left three people dead and more than 260 injured in April.

Major cities revamped security in the aftermath, and the New York City Marathon followed suit.

At least 1,500 cameras positioned along the route will help boost security, New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said.
