Check Out What You Missed At The NYC Marathon Expo!

You've got to see this specialty gear inspired by newsprint, graffiti and sidewalks after a fresh rain.

The New York City Marathon is a very special for a number of reasons. For starters, it’s the largest marathon in the world with more than 50,000 runners. Nearly 34 million dollars is raised annually for charity. The urban 26.2-miler welcomes participants from all over the world to share a singular experience through all five boroughs of New York, while soaking in the energy of the city’s cheering fans.

Thanks to its prestige, big name running brands create some very cool gear, targeted specifically for NYC runners and the marathon’s biggest fans. Sold exclusively at the expo (and sometimes online), this gear reflects the culture of the city while working on a workout. Check out what brands dreamed up for the 2017 New York City Marathon.
