Among the participants in the illustrious event is Canadian Olympian Lanni Marchant, who comes into the event as the highest-finishing participant in the Rio Games marathon.

Marchant, of London, Ont., could be considered a dark horse in Sunday's race as she boasts a personal best time (two hours, twenty-eight minutes) that is among the top five in the field in New York.

Fellow Canadians Rob Watson and Marilyn Arsenault will also be competing.
