Marathoners Run to Races Outside New York as Entry Fee Hits $255

Danielle Gall, a member of the New York Road Runners, can’t convince herself to run in the organization’s flagship race. The New York City Marathon has gotten too expensive.

“I just can’t stomach paying that much,” Gall said of the race, which raised the price $60, to $255, for U.S. residents and $63, to $347, for international runners, citing increased costs. “I’m afraid it’s becoming an elitist sport that nobody can afford.”
