Thousands of runners will hit the streets of New York on Sunday for the 2015 New York City Marathon.

Former marathon world record holder Wilson Kipsang looks to defend his title and become the third Kenyan to win back-to-back titles in New York. 

The American hope for a victory will fall on 40-year-old Meb Keflezighi, who could set the American Masters record in the marathon with a strong performance.

In addition to the elite athletes, over 50,000 runners will also look to set personal bests and achieve their own goals over the 26.2 mile distance.
