What was the temperature at the start of 1996 Marathon? Cannot find it anywhere. I ran it in 3:49.07(after crawling over the bridge and cramping after down slope of the Manhattan bridge). It was still awesome! Thanks - Steve


Hi Steve, the 1996 Marathon (Nov. 3) was one of the chilliest. The temperature at 10AM was just 41 degrees (after a low of 35) and at 1PM it had risen to 48, which was 11 degrees colder than average. This year's Marathon wasn't quite as chilly in the AM but the high winds made it feel colder.
