Google Map for the New York City Marathon

Brian Timoney has created an interactive Google Map for the upcoming New York City Marathon which is being held on November 6th. The map allows you to toggle options such as race route, start/finish points, mile markers (kilometre markers for the Canadians!), toilets and road closures. Brian cites his reasons for adding the portable toilet locations:

"...In 1998 I was running the Philadelphia Marathon and around Mile #9 I really wanted to know where the portable toilets were. Sure enough, for the next 3.5 miles I was in a state of bewilderment and increasing discomfort before finding solace and comfort in the facilities of Fairmount Park... So, hell yeah, the bathrooms are posted on this map!"
Check out Brian's creation here... especially if you're a runner in this race!
