Thousands expected for Detroit Marathon

by

DETROIT (WKZO) -- Thousands are expected to take to the streets of Detroit and Windsor on Sunday morning as they participate in the 35th Annual Detroit Free Press Marathon.

While runners have been training in preparation for the 26.2-mile run, scores of volunteers and organizers have been doing their own prep.  They'll make sure there are more than 152-thousand cups of water available at aid stations along with 49-thousand cups of Gatorade.

Over 100-thousand safety pins will be needed to pin numbers to the runners' clothing.  The anticipated 24-thousand runners and spectators will have access to 386-porta-johns.
