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.
