Some fun marathon stats

Earlier this week, Running USA released its annual report on the state of marathon running in the U.S. I am a numbers nerd and love reading through these facts. Such a nerd that I decided to take my favorite marathon stats and make them pretty… 



It is amazing to see the sheer growth of people running marathons… a 140% percent increase since 1990! Incredible! 

And congratulations to the New York City Marathon who set an all-time record with more than 50,000 finishers last year. So excited to be part of the race again this year!


Do you think marathon running will continue to grow? 

Who found out they were IN for the New York City Marathon today?
