WSJ Article on Marathon Course Change Speculation

Interesting piece of speculation about any possible changes (some radical, most unlikely) to the course of the NYC Marathon in the Wall Street Journal (registration may be required).

One restriction to adding more people (do you really need more?) has been the start and the finish (an alternate start could be in Brooklyn ...). The Olympic marathon, if it were in NYC, would have started in Coney Island and gone across the Brooklyn Bridge - not realistic for the annual footrace.

The WSJ had an article last week about attempts to add a second New York City marathon, this one run solely in the Bronx.

I thought the article on adding a second marathon was very interesting. It's kind of ridiculous that it's so hard to get into a marathon in NYC but nothing's going to happen with the NYRR monopoly.
