Today marks the day that the running of the 2013 ING New York City Marathon will take place. The ING New York City Marathon course is a “26.2-mile block party through the world’s most diverse city, and is a model for big-city marathons around the world.”

There will be plenty of added security measures for this year’s race following the tragedy at the Boston Marathon earlier this year, so make sure you are up to date on the latest security measures.
From the official website:
This year there will be more baggage inspection areas. All bags and items entering Marathon venues and events are subject to inspection by NYRR, contracted private security personnel, venue personnel, and the NYPD. To speed access and avoid longer lines, we strongly recommend against bringing a bag.
Spectators with bags in any Central Park grandstand will be subject to baggage inspection before entering the bleacher seats. We suggest one bag per guest, no larger than the size of a woman’s purse. Please note that no strollers will be allowed.
