Elmira native Molly Huddle is part of a world-class elite women’s field scheduled to compete in the 2018 TCS New York City Marathon.
The list of women’s runners also includes three-time race champion Mary Keitany, defending champion Shalane Flanagan, 2018 London Marathon winner Vivian Cheruiyot and 2018 Boston Marathon winner Des Linden. The race is scheduled for Nov. 4.
Huddle and several other runners were announced Tuesday. Flanagan and Linden had been previously announced as competitors.
This will be the third career marathon for Huddle, who finished third in her marathon debut at the NYC Marathon in 2016, posting a time of 2 hours, 28 minutes, 13 seconds.
“Running a marathon is always a special experience, but I’m really excited to line up with such a great group of American women in New York this year,” Huddle said Tuesday in a press release from race organizer New York Road Runners.
