Ryan, thanks for setting this straight.

The only thing I’ll add is that when the ING NYC marathon course was changed back in the 70’s by Fred Lebow, it was purposely designed to go through all the boroughs so that it could be a celebration for all cultures and ethnic backgrounds. Giving preferential treatment to non-NYC New Yorkers does not fit with the history of the race.
