• Runners take to the streets for annual marathon

    Updated:

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Runners who missed out on New York City’s marathon got a second chance Saturday in Charlotte.

    Hundreds of people lined the streets to cheer them on.

    The Thunder Road Marathon is an annual 26-mile trek.

    Any runners who couldn't run in New York after Superstorm Sandy were offered a discounted registration fee.               

    The race wasn’t fun for drivers as it forced a number of road closures.
