The 38-year-old from Great Britain is still a relative rookie to the marathon. She made her debut in London in April, finishing 19th in a solid 2:28:24. Pavey is no stranger to New York City—she finished sixth at the NYC Half-Marathon in March in 1:09:33 and seventh at the NYRR Mini 10K in June in 32:46. And although she’s new to the 26.2-mile distance, her racing experience should serve her well on one of road racing’s biggest stages.
