Despite the Monster Storm, the New York City Marathon Will Go On On Monday at noon, a few hours before Hurricane Sandy began slamming the New York area, New York City Marathon race director Mary Wittenberg said that Sunday's five-borough will go on as scheduled. "We remain extremely confident that we’re going to have an amazing weekend,” Wittenberg said in a teleconference. "There’s no anticipation of any change to opening ceremonies [on Friday night], the time frame for the Dash [to the Finish Line 5K] or the marathon." Certain events this week will be rescheduled or condensed, and entrants who wish or need to postpone their entries until 2013 will be more readily accommodated in a new deferral policy. "We have the benefit of time" to get ready for Sunday, said Wittenberg. "We're just lucky the marathon isn't today." (photo of Mary Wittenberg by Victah Sailer)
