Interesting piece of trivia:
“The number one foreign, non-US group represented, Italy: nearly 4000 runners last year. France, almost 3000. Germany, more than 2000. You add them all together, they’re bringing their families with them, they’re spending more money here for more nights because they tend to turn it into vacations.. you add it all up and it’s tens of millions of dollars extra for New York City.” – says Ken Belson of The New York Times.
