See the NYC Marathon From the Inside

As NYC gears up for the annual TCS New York City Marathon this November 6th, we decided to take a look back at last year’s race – through the eyes of Italian photographer and marathon runner, Marco Craig.

A Brooklyn-based writer and editor, Chelsea's work has appeared in Matador Network, The Huffington Post, the TripAdvisor blog, and more. When not planning her next trip, you'll usually find her drinking way too much iced coffee (always iced—she’s from New England) or bingeing a Netflix original series.

Plenty of people can photograph a marathon, and some can even run one in full. Not many people do both, simultaneously, however. That in mind, sports marketing firm Almostthere went to professional Italian photographer Marco Craig with a proposition to do just so. Up for the challenge, Craig ran the 2015 New York City Marathon while also snapping shots of fellow competitors and cheering crowds on his Leica Q.

Craig’s resulting collection – NYC Marathon: Do Not Cross – captures the off-the-wall energy of the masses who flooded each of the five boroughs in support of friends, family members, and even complete strangers. Despite running an arduous 26.2-mile course, he managed to catch their signs of encouragement, their arms raised mid-cheer, and their offerings of food and water, ultimately proving, as he says, that “New York can be a cruel and merciless city, but not on the day of the Marathon.”
