On The Run at NYC Marathon Dash to the Finish Line 5K

In the latest installment of “On The Run at the 2013 ING New York City Marathon,” we broadcast from the Dash to the Finish Line 5k, a run from the United Nations to the marathon finish line in Central Park. More than 5,000 runners joined the race, including a stacked field of Olympians.

We bring you the race and chat with some of the favorites including Shalane Flanagan, Molly Huddle, Sally Kipyego, Evan Jager, Lopez Lomong, and Nick Willis.

Plus, the amazing story of Bryan Steinhauer: after languishing in a coma following a life-threatening attack, Steinhauer re-learned to talk, walk, and run. Now he’s taking on the ING New York City Marathon.

Join Tim Hutchings, Carrie Tollefson and and me as we cover a world-class field of athletes on marathon eve.

    The 5k was awesome, other then the starting mat missing my chip. Weather was perfect and it’s always good when you’re not slogging across the marathon finish line.
