NYC has a chance to host the 2012 World Half-Marathon Championship

March 17, 2010

According to the IAAF, a letter of intent has been received for NYC to host the 2012 World Half-Marathon Championship. From the IAAF Website: “Letters of intent have been received from New York City and Karnava Bulgaria, and a decision is expected in November 2010.” That’s great news. Since NYC was denied the men’s Olympic marathon trials for the 2012 Olympics. I recommend everyone that would want NYC host the 2012 World Half-Marathon Championship write the IAAF. Karnava, Bulgaria? Come on. Karnava, Bulgaria doesn’t even appear on Google maps. NYC is the greatest place for running!
