The 2016 New York City Marathon will kick off this Sunday, November 6th. The world’s largest and most popular marathon has come a long way since it began in 1970. Originating with 127 entrants running laps around Central Park, by 2016 the race has grown to over 50,000 race participants and expanded into all five New York City boroughs. Follow along with us this week as we navigate the race course with our most popular products. Whether you’re in New York or cheering from home, fuel-up with your favorite PowerBar products and get ready for race day.
