2013 New York City Marathon - Runner Tracking, Course Maps, & More

 The NYC Marathon Expo being set up on Oct. 30th.

October is nearly over, and that means the 2013 New York City Marathon is coming up. Here are some essential information you'll want to know, whether you're running in the race or following friends or family who are running it.
There are a couple of different ways to track runners. One is TrackMyRunners™, a for-pay service ($2.99 or $3.99), which lets you track athletes by text, Twitter, or Facebook (see details).

A free option for tracking runners is the official NYC Marathon mobile app, available for iOS or Android. According to its webpage, the app offers:
  • Live tracking of runners (up to 10) with splits
  • Elite runner leaderboard
  • Spectator course-map points of interest
  • Race Calendar, Expo information, and race FAQs
  • News and live Twitter feed
