A Race Like No Other

26.2 Miles Through the Streets of New York

Weitere Formate

“Gets closer to this marathon than an avenue railbird, and it leaves impressions not fleeting, but lasting.”

—Sports Illustrated

The New York City Marathon is considered one of the nation’s—and the world's—premier sporting events. A reporter for the
New York Times, Liz Robbins brings the color, the history, the electricity of this remarkable annual competition alive in
A Race Like No Other. Centering her narrative around the fabled 2007 running, Robbins captures all the intensity of the grand event, following the runners—both professional and amateur—along 26.2 grueling miles through the streets of New York, from the starting line at the Verrazano Narrows Bridge to the finish line in Central Park, and offering fascinating portraits of marathon legends like the race's charismatic founder, the late Fred Lebow, and nine-time champion Grete Waitz. The
Wall Street Journal raves: “Robbins nails the race, painting a broad, impressionistic portrait of what I consider New York’s greatest day.” No other book captures the excitement of the New York City Marathon like
A Race Like No Other.
Rezension
"Robbins, a sportswriter for The New York Times, has packed her book with scrumptious details...If the written word still has any force, then this book could take on talismanic power, like the medal or the Mylar cape that every finisher receives." New York Times Book Review
