There are few events that bring the people of New York City together quite like the NYC Marathon. The sheer scale of the race means that wherever you are in the city, you've a chance to see the runners go by (see our guide on where to watch the NYC Marathon). But there's so much more to it than admiring the competitors' athleticism from afar. Anyone who's run or watched the race will tell you that there's a feeling that everyone's in it together: The runners are doing their best, and goddamn it, the crowd are cheering 'em on with everything they've got! In celebration of this lovely event, cue up our running-songs playlist and take a look through our highlights from last year's big event—the costumes, the signs, the beautiful views of the city—and be prepared to dab your eyes with a tissue.
