MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — This year’s Manchester Marathon started with a record number of participants — about 2,500 runners.
Organizers said about 600 of those runners had been planning to take part in the New York City marathon before it was canceled. They then came to New Hampshire for Sunday’s race.
WMUR-TV reports (http://bit.ly/PRbGn7) some of the runners who came up from New York said the biggest challenge was the hills of Manchester. They said it wasn’t something they were prepared for, but they pushed through it.
