TCS New York City Marathon, New York City, NY United States
Kathrine is 1974 winner of the race and last ran it in 1975. She plans to run again, 32 year later, and this time she is running with a small contingent of 261 Fearless charity runners. She was inducted into the New York Road Runners Hall of Fame 2 years ago. Kathrine has done the TV broadcast of the race for 28 years, and therefore has never run the race when it is in the streets of NYC. In her day, it was all in Central Park. She will be at the expo and at press conferences; those times and locations TBA.
