The first New York City Marathon took place in 1970 it was staged entirely in Central Park and had 127 participants, only one of them female. The course was four loops around the park, and the first ten finishers each received a watch. {Today, the male and female winners receive $130,000.} The winner of the first race, Gary Muhrcke, a New York City fireman, finished with a time of 2:31:38. The race has been run every year since then {except 2012 where it was cancelled thanks to Hurricane Sandy}. The course now runs through the five boroughs. It is the largest marathon in the observable solar system with over 50 thousand runners. These days New York Road Runners club has over 100 staff working year–round on the marathon. More than 6,000 volunteers participate on race day. 2,500 media credentials are issued. During the race, volunteers will hand out 62,370 gallons of water and 32,040 gallons of Gatorade in 2,250,000 paper cups while 80 photographers snap 450,000 photos of racers. And the 41 medical aid stations along the way are outfitted with over five tons of ice, 13,475 adhesive bandages, and 390 tubs of Vaseline. Because of the popularity of the race, participation is chosen largely by a lottery system. Runners who are members of NYRR can gain entry by meeting the qualifications for guaranteed entry or via nomination from an official running club. It is held in early November.
