    NYRR is overreaching. The overall quality of the event will suffer. More hardcore runners will be discouraged from running the NYC Marathon because of overcrowding. It’s already happening with the local races which have gotten out of hand. Why do you need 4,000 runners at a 4 mile race in Central Park? That’s nuts.
