In 1993 it was 72 degrees. Shouldn't that be included in the list of warmest race days?


It fell just short of 1971 and 1978 because rather than use high temperature as the determinant of the rankings, I used the average of the three time periods of 10AM, 1PM and 4PM (the report I used has temperatures at three-hour intervals; those I chose are when most runners are running). 1993's 10AM temp was 61, 1PM's was 71 and 4PM's was 70, so it came in just under my cut-off point.


You're correct, 1993 was a warm day to run the NYC Marathon. I remember it being in the 70s.
