NYC Marathon Exhibit at the Museum of the City of New York

So, this happened. And it’s probably one of the most exciting exhibits at the Museum of the City of New York since the Sex and the City one. Well for me!

Not much to explain, other than saying, just go already! It was quite fun. Check it out!

By the way, entrance is free if you have a museum membership, if you’re a nyrr member (bring your card or show them your mynyrr website on your phone), if you’re registered for the marathon, or if you have the NYCID.

I think this one was one of my favorite pictures in the whole exhibit and I am not sure I had seen it before. It’s Gary Muhrcke, the first winner of the NYC Marathon, who I’ve met millions of times at his store, Super Runners Shop. But it’s such a great shot!!!

Then you go into the side exhibit room, where there’s an impressive (and inspiring) timeline

this is one impressive photo!!!! do you see the thousands of runners in all three waves? even in the back, side…. when people complain about the waves they are in, it makes me laugh… you can’t possibly put 50,000 runners all in the same place, it’s a LOT of us!

I hope you go see it and LOVE it as I did. I’ll probably go back a few times before March 😉

  2. Thanks for sharing this! I ran in 2010, and 2014, and picked up my bib in 2012, just before we got
    “Sandy’d”. I don’t recognize the shirt from the year the race got canceled. Mine was orange, and the design was not the same as the one in the picture.

    Anyway, wish I were there for this year’s race. This marathon is my absolute FAVORITE!
