A race organizer's worst nightmare. Less than seven days until the ING New York City Marathon and Hurricaine Sandy is on the way. Will the aftermath be too much for the race to go on or will be some kind of watered down affair? You can follow the Marathon organizer's website below.
I found this paragraph under terms and conditions of entering the race. We are talking some serious dollars. Today , Wednesday, NYRR says they are planning to hold the race and considering making some changes. the ferries and subways to Staten Island are not working today due to flooding and/or high water. If you had a flight reservation for Friday or Saturday and a hotel reservation, and had trained 1000-2000 miles preparing for this would you still go to NYC this weekend?

No where on the website have I found the actual entry fee. I did see that there was an $11 fee to put your name in the random selection process.
