In a mezzanine level, one room of the museum is dedicated to the New York City marathon. Besides a map of the marathon route, there is also a miniature statue of marathon founder Frank Lebow, just like the one in Central Park that moves each year for the race and a replica of a laurel wreath worn by each years’ winners, made by Jane Muhrcke, wife of Gary Muhrcke who won the first New York City marathon.
