The founder of the Empire State marathon was my friend Brian Collins. I was the Race announcer for this event, and many other events Brian produced. Brian was more than a founder of this race, , he was a gifted athlete having completed numerous marathons (Boston), and Ironman races! He was my training partner and truly missed by many! We spent many days and nights talking and planning for this event, his dream lives on...Ray

This event is in its 11 th year, not 7 th as stated. I knowbecause my son , Brian Collins, was the founder of this race, but died in 2015. The race used to be a three day event with an Expo that hosted speakers , elite athletes, a fashion show and at least 35 vendors. On race day during the first year over 1000 marathoners lined up for that inaugural event. The half marathon was a bit more popular with between 1400-1500 runners with their toe to the line. Those were the days!
