New York, July 31, 2014—Meb Keflezighi, the 2014 Boston Marathon champion and winner of the 2009 New York City Marathon, and Caroline Wozniacki formerly the top-ranked player in the world and winner of the recent Istanbul Cup, will run as Team for Kids Ambassadors at the 2014 TCS New York City Marathon on Sunday, November 2, 2014.
Wozniacki said she had contacted New York Road Runners to enter because competing in the marathon was a personal goal and she wanted to raise money for a charity.
“It’s always been on my bucket list,” Wozniacki said in an interview Thursday morning. “And always New York City was the one I wanted to do. I’ve seen it on TV, and I have always thought one day I would do it. November, I looked at my schedule and I didn’t really have any plans when my season ended, so I thought, ‘Why not do it?’ ”
