Bloomberg: Marathon Became A "Divisive Issue"
Published November 4, 2012
On Friday, NYRR CEO Mary Wittenberg "appeared shaken, on the verge of tears" when she announced the race would be cancelled. Wittenberg: "It's crushing and really difficult" (N.Y. TIMES, 11/4).
Even though the race was canceled, "almost 2,000 runners came to Central Park on Sunday to run 26.2 miles anyway." The unofficial run was "organized on Facebook on Saturday afternoon by a couple of friends" (NYDAILYNEWS.com, 11/4).
ESPN2 planned to televise the race nationally beginning at 9am ET Sunday, which would have marked the first national broadcast of the road race in nearly two decades (CABLEFAX DAILY, 11/4). The network reverted to its regular Sunday programing, including "Outside The Lines" and "SportsCenter" (THE DAILY).
