Brentwood woman among runners set to participate in NYC Marathon

Posted: Updated: Nov 4, 2012 6:12 PM

A Williamson County runner is one of thousands disappointed in the cancellation of Sunday's New York City Marathon.

Damage and destruction from Hurricane Sandy forced the cancellation of the race for the first time in marathon history.

"They made the right decision, it was just a little late," Darla Gray told Nashville's News 2.

The marathon was canceled on Friday afternoon, just as runners were starting to arrive in New York City.

Gray was scheduled to fly from Nashville to New York on Saturday.

"I think they should have decided the morning of the hurricane, after it hit to just cancel the race, there's such devastation there and all along we were trying to figure out how could they run a race in the midst of everything that had happened there," Gray said.

The New York City Marathon would have been Gray's fourth full marathon, and she hopes to participate in the race next year.

"I think it's one of those things on my 'Bucket List' that I can't imagine never running the New York City Marathon," said Gray.

According to the marathon's official Web site, runners who were registered for Sunday's race are guaranteed entry in 2013.
