Running Man: Stiegman competes in his fourth NYC Marathon

As Vice President, Global Digital Content, Patrick Stiegman oversees the development of ESPN’s editorial content around the world. But this Sunday his focus will be less global and more local as he looks to complete his fourth New York City Marathon – and 15th marathon overall.

Stiegman started running in late 2010 and ran his first half marathon in 2011, then his first marathon in 2012. To date, he’s run 14 marathons, 73 half marathons, two Ironman 70.3 duathlons and roughly 75 other races of distances ranging from 5K and 10K to 10 or 12 milers.

The New York City Marathon will air live on ESPN2 Sunday, Nov. 5, at 9 a.m. ET and will also be available streaming live via the ESPN App. ESPN’s own Sage Steele will serve as the race-day host and SportsCenter anchor John Anderson will be call the play-by-play.
