Boston and New York, February 1, 2012—The Super Bowl battle between the New England Patriots and the New York Giants will take to the streets with a “running” bet between Boston Athletic Association executive director Tom Grilk and New York Road Runners president and CEO Mary Wittenberg, it was jointly announced today by race officials.

If the Patriots win, Wittenberg will wear a Tom Brady jersey during the 2012 B.A.A. 5K on Sunday, April 15, during Boston Marathon weekend. If the Giants prevail, Grilk will don an Eli Manning jersey during the 2012 NYRR Dash to the Finish Line 5K on Saturday, November 3, during ING New York City Marathon weekend.

For the Patriots and Giants, the road to the Super Bowl will turn into a highly anticipated fight on the field in Indianapolis on Sunday. The championship game will determine which of these notable marathon executives will be “fielding” wisecracks down the road—a 3.1 mile road, to be exact.

The 116th running of the Boston Marathon will take place on Monday, April 16. For more information, visit www.baa.org.

The 43rd running of the iconic ING New York City Marathon will take place on Sunday, November 4. For more information, visit www.ingnycmarathon.org.

Both races are part of the World Marathon Major series. For more information, visit http://www.worldmarathonmajors.com.
