New York Marathon 2021

The 50th running of the New York Marathon brought a return of exhilaration and joy to the streets of New York City and a feeling of hope that, at last, the worst of the pandemic is behind us.

The three leaders of the pro women’s division near the 24 mile mark on Fifth Avenue. Peres Jepchirchir of Kenya (right) went on to win.

Albert Korir of Kenya won the men’s division.

Shalane Flanagan, winner of the 2017 New York Marathon, ran 6 marathons in 6 weeks at the age of 40. In 2017 she was the first American woman to win since 1977.

She made her own sign.

Chloe tracked her boyfriend Austin and reacted with joy when she spotted him on Fifth Avenue.

Some of the pack running down Fifth Avenue at a respectable 3:10 pace.

Determined to finish, but it hurts.
