UPDATE: From the Official Website of the New York City Marathon (Friday, November 2, 2012):
The City of New York and New York Road Runners announce that the 2012 ING NYC Marathon has been canceled. While holding the race would not require diverting resources from the recovery effort, it is clear that it has become the source of controversy and division. We cannot allow a controversy over an athletic event -- even one as meaningful as this -- to distract attention away from all the critically important work that is being done to help New York City recover from the storm. New York Road Runners will have additional information in the days ahead and we thank you for your dedication to the spirit of this race.
Team Animal League Runners and Supporters:
We would like take this time to thank all of Team Animal League’s runners for their dedication and commitment to our mission. We would also like to thank all of the donors who supported the runners and their fundraising efforts. We will make sure to communicate information to our runners as soon as it becomes available.
Join Team Animal League in the 2012 ING NYC Marathon and support the Animal League’s life-saving mission to rescue, rehabilitate and adopt nearly 20,000 animals each year.
