The New York City Marathon is almost here, and that means dozens of celebrities will be getting out their sneakers to take part in one of the biggest running events of the year.
On Tuesday, the New York Road Runners announced an official list of well-known personalities who have signed up to participate in the storied 26.2-mile race, which takes place on Nov. 7 in New York City.
The group is made up of a variety of celebrities from television, movies, music, and sports, who will run the race with more than 30,000 others.
Notable entrants include Olympic gold medalist and FIFA women's World Cup champion Abby Wambach; Ben Lovett and Marcus Mumford of Mumford & Sons; former NFL player Tiki Barber; Nev Schulman, host of MTV's Catfish: The TV Show; Tayshia Adams of The Bachelorette fame; Adams' fiancé, Zac Clark; former Bachelor star Matt James and his friend and former Bachelorette contestant Tyler Cameron; and many more.
This year's marathon is bound to be a special one for many participants as the event was canceled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It will also be the marathon's 50th anniversary.
"This will be an unprecedented and historic year for the TCS New York City Marathon as one of the most iconic New York sporting events makes its return," Race Director Ted Metellus said in a press release in May that announced the marathon would make its comeback. "As we stage a safe and memorable race for the 50th running, this year's marathon will showcase our great city's strength, inspiration, and determination."
