Postpone the NYC Marathon until Spring 2013

Jeff Smith started this petition to Mayor Mike Bloomberg and Mary Wittenberg, CEO of NYRR

Police, fire and other emergency services should not be diverted to the Marathon during this time of crisis. This event is always a positive event and it should not be turned into a hugely negative drain on city resources. The potential effects can be devastating. Please postpone this race until the Spring of 2013.
