The Last Bridge of the NYC Marathon

The New York City Marathon is an all-city affair, passing through many neighborhoods throughout the five boroughs. There are five bridges on the marathon route. The uphill incline that begins each bridge is a challenge for runners, particularly as they get more tired throughout the race.

The Madison Avenue Bridge, which connects the South Bronx to Harlem, is the final bridge on the route. From there runners turn left onto Fifth Avenue and head down towards Central Park and the finish line.

Watch this slideshow for the sights and sounds of the marathon as runners make their way over the final bridge.
