Who created the New York City Marathon?

The father of the world's busiest and most famous marathon was Joe Kleinerman (1912-2003), an athletic New York postman who envied marathon races in Boston and other American cities. In 1970, Kleinerman together with other runners called the first marathon in the Big Apple, which was held entirely in Central Park. But the postman convinced businessman Fred Lebow to run the test through the five neighborhoods of the city. Thus, the marathon, which is held on the first Sunday in November, starts in Staten Island, at the Verrazano Bridge; It runs through Brooklyn and Queens, across Manhattan and up the Bronx to reach the finish line in Central Park.
