Is running the New York City Marathon on your bucket list? As those who've tried to gain entry to the race can tell you, obtaining a number for the marathon can be as tough as running it. The race offers a limited number of lottery spots and the lottery is now open until May 24. Go to the ING NYC Marathon website to apply for a chance to run the marathon on November 3, 2013.
If you don't get in through the lottery, there are ways to get a spot - check out How to Get Into the 2013 NYC Marathon to find out how.
