The 2022 TCS New York City Marathon is happening Sunday. More than 50,000 runners will make their way through all five boroughs on the 26.2-mile course.
The marathon is at full capacity for the first time since 2019. It was canceled in 2020 and downsized in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
From the Verrazzano Bridge to Central Park, tens of thousands of runners have hit the pavement for the TCS New York City Marathon on Sunday.
Participants are winding their way through all five boroughs all for the glory of crossing the finish line.
History was already made early on when Marcel Hug set a new course record for the men’s wheelchair race just before 9:30 a.m.

When Lonah Chemtai Salpeter crossed the finish line in third place at the World Championships marathon in Eugene, Oregon, in July, she had an Israeli flag draped around her back.
Salpeter, who immigrated to Israel from Kenya, was thrilled. “I’m so proud to represent my country,” she said after the race.
She was praised by Prime Minister Yair Lapid. “Lonah’s willpower and determination is a source of pride for Israeli athletics and for the entire State of Israel,” he tweeted.
Salpeter, 33, had won Israel’s fourth World Championships medal over a distance mostly dominated by runners from East African countries.
She was already the first Israeli to win a major marathon, walking away with the gold medal at the 2020 Tokyo Marathon. And on Sunday, she will be one of the favorites to win the New York City Marathon and start the race as the fastest career marathon time of a competitor.
Her path here was not a straight line: Salpeter had to fight for citizenship in the country where she fell in love with her sport. And it certainly wasn’t the journey she or her husband, who is also her coach, could have expected a few years ago.
Salpeter moved to Herzliya, Israel, near Tel Aviv in 2008 to work as a nanny for a Kenyan diplomat. Running became an activity to get her out of the house after the day was over. “It was a hobby,” she said over the phone from Iten, Kenya, where she trained. “I was bored at home, so I went jogging in the park with everyone.”
