You know the marathon as an iconic New York City event -- but for New York's MTA, the first Sunday in November is the "most prominent day of the year...(for) the nation's longest suspension bridge."

The New York City Marathon begins at the foot of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge in Staten Island. New York's MTA operates the bridge and put together this short video.

The MTA says "50,304 runners finished the race, making it the largest marathon in world history."

While the video makes use of both Time Lapse and Slow Motion, they are not one and the same as the title implies. Time Lapse speeds up the video.

On another note, "God Made Cars" is an interesting choice of music for video of a foot race.
