Brooklyn Race Expects Overflow From Cancelled ING N.Y. Marathon

Organizers of Sunday's Brooklyn Marathon expect "more than a few" of the race's 500 entrants to be runners who had planned to run in the Nov. 4 ING N.Y. Marathon before it was cancelled due to Hurricane Sandy. There were 350 runners in last year's inaugural Brooklyn marathon, which this year organizers are calling "the 2012 New York marathon that happened." The race will be run in loops in and around Prospect Park, which has had to be "cleared of downed trees and other debris" following Sandy (NEWSDAY, 11/15).
