Runners huddled together to stay warm before the start of Sunday’s New York City Marathon as temperatures dropped below 45 degrees. According to forecasters, the arctic blast that dumped record breaking snow on parts of the South has brought a wintry mix to the Northeast.

More than 50,000 runners and two million spectators are expected on and along the course for the world’s largest marathon, which goes through all of New York’s five boroughs.
