The TCS NYC Marathon is upon us and on Halloween, runners from around the world came together in celebration!

The Opening Ceremony is an annual event hosted by the New York Road Runners club. Some regard it as the official inauguration to marathon weekend. As reality sets in for runners at the expo on Thursday, the follow-up is a huge celebration in Central Park.
