The 2009 edition of the NYC Marathon will mark the 25th anniversary of her Olympic triumph at the distance.
American distance legend Joan Benoit Samuelson has announced she will run the 2009 ING New York City Marathon. Samuelson continues to run at a high level despite the fact that she is 52 years old. The 1984 Los Angeles Olympic marathon champion ran at the 2008 Olympic Trials marathon in Boston and will return to the distance this fall in New York. This year will mark the 25th anniversary of her win in Los Angeles, where she won the inaugural Olympic women’s marathon.
