This Sunday, tens of thousands of runners will compete in the TCS New York City Marathon. The annual event spans all five boroughs of New York City, which means street closures will abound. This year's race will also feature enhanced security measures in the wake of the deadly terror attack in lower Manhattan. Runners and spectators can expect to see more sand trucks and block vehicles along the 26.2-mile course, according to police. The NYPD will also deploy additional counter-sniper teams, heavy weapons teams, aviation units to scan rooftops, and plainclothes officers who will mix in with the cheering crowds. recommended reading Best spots to watch the NYC marathon Avoid the traffic headache and plan ahead: Take a look at this list of street and bridge closures now.
