NEW YORK (AP) — On the eve of spring, more than 20,000 runners from around the world pounded Manhattan pavements in a half-marathon covering 13 miles.
The 2017 United Airlines NYC Half started Sunday at 7 a.m. in Central Park on a chilly but sunny day. The runners crossed midtown Manhattan through Times Square and headed for the West Side Highway.
The marathon stopped traffic on its route, which ended in lower Manhattan's Battery Park.
Sunday's half-marathon is part of New York Road Runners' Five-Borough Series of runs.
