1. Run This Town
This weekend, thousands of runners breezed through New York City’s five boroughs, proving they all have dedication, grit and the athleticism to conquer 26 miles! Among those runners were a few of our fave celebs sprinkled in, trotting towards the finish line. Check out the celebs who ran the NYC marathon and are inspiring us all to POSSIBLY run next year. Possibly.
2. Alexis Welch
She’s most widely known as New York Knick Amar’e Stoudemire’s wife, however Welch is making sure she’s got her own two feet to stand…well to run on. She ran the NYC marathon for the PitCCh In Foundation.
3. Angie Martinez
The “Voice Of New York” raised at least $26,000 before the race even began! Diddy, who ran in the 2003 New York City Marathon, donated $26,000 to Martinez’s cause!
4. Amber Sabathia
Amber is one of the co-founders for the PitCCh In Foundation, alongside her husband (pictured). She decided that if she’s going to ask others to run the NYC marathon, she might as well join them!
5. Caroline Wozniacki & Serena Williams
These two tennis greats strapped on their running sneakers to dominate for 26 miles. Talk about a win win!
6. Hugh Jackman
Ever the athlete, it was expected for Hugh Jackman to run NYC!
7. Katrina Bowden
The “30 Rock” actress uses running to stay in shape. She ran to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
8. Teri Hatcher, Tiki Barber & Traci Lynn Johnson
Teri is a triathlete and at 49-year-old, more than an inspiration! She ran for the J/P Haitian Relief Organization. Tiki Barber is the rushing leader for the NY Giants, so running is in his blood! This was his first marathon. Congrats!
9. Richard Blais
As a “Top Chef,” this cooking man admittedly runs so that he can eat! Chef Blais ran the town for the 3rd time!
