NEW YORK – Organizers of
the New York City Marathon are still unsure how they will get runners to the
starting line Sunday.
After Hurricane Sandy
devastated the New York area, organizers initially decided to use only buses to
get runners to the start. But New York Road Runners President Mary Wittenberg yesterday
said ferries would again take some entrants to the start on Staten Island.
Now marathon organizers
say the ferries may not be used.
City and race officials have faced criticism for not canceling or
postponing the marathon. But sponsor Asics calls holding the event "a true
symbol of the city's strength and determination."
