NY Marathon faces another obstacle

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK – Organizers of the New York City Marathon are still unsure how they will get runners to the starting line Sunday.

After Hurricane Sandy devastated the New York area, organizers initially decided to use only buses to get runners to the start. But New York Road Runners President Mary Wittenberg yesterday said ferries would again take some entrants to the start on Staten Island.

Now marathon organizers say the ferries may not be used.

City and race officials have faced criticism for not canceling or postponing the marathon. But sponsor Asics calls holding the event "a true symbol of the city's strength and determination."
