Xomox employee in ING NYC Marathon

A record 50,740 runners – including the millionth person to start the race in its 43-year history – pounded the pavement though the five boroughs as the marathon returned one year after it was canceled because of Hurricane Sandy. Forty-seven bomb-sniffing dogs were on patrol in response to the deadly Boston Marathon bombings in April.

At least 1,500 cameras were positioned along the route to help boost security, New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said.There were baggage screenings and surveillance helicopters. Runners were screened and inspected before taking their starting positions, according to police. Bomb-sniffing dogs and scuba divers scanned bridges and shorelines. Counter terrorism officers escorted ferries carrying runners.

Priscah Jeptoo of Kenya won the marathon’s women’s division with an official time of 2:25:07. On the men’s side, Geoffrey Mutai of Kenya won with an official time of 2:08:24. Each will get $100,000 in prize money.
