We love New Yorkers that organize extreme urban events, and “Marathon Day” has been one of our favorites. This 26.2 drink pub crawl across New York City’s five boroughs roughly following the path of the New York City ING Marathon, and making use of all modes of public transportation (perhaps some Citi-bikers as well this time). This year’s event is taking place this Saturday, June 1st. Organized by Janos Marton, you can read more about the origins of the event here and here. Here are the main pieces of information to know:
