For the first time since the onset of the pandemic, tens of thousands of runners will hit the streets for the New York City Marathon, and celebrities and athletes will race alongside regular folks.

The U.S. women’s national soccer team has several Olympic gold medalists and World Cup winners running in this year’s race, including its alumnae Abby Wambach, Lauren Holiday, Leslie Osborne and Kate Markgraf.

The retired Giants running back Tiki Barber is a veteran marathoner who will run in his seventh in-person New York City Marathon this year. Christy Turlington, a model, activist and seasoned marathoner, will also compete.

The Broadway actress and Tony Award-winner Kelli O’Hara; the Grammy winning musicians Marcus Mumford and Ben Lovett of Mumford & Sons; as well as several contestants from “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” franchises, including Tayshia Adams and Matt James, are also among the celebrities running. It is possible to track the race’s celebrity runners using the event’s official app, so long as they did not opt out of the tracking feature.

Other notable runners include:

  • C.J. Hobgood, ASP World Championship surfer

  • Daniel Humm, chef and owner of Eleven Madison Park

  • Kristine Froseth, model and actress

  • Nicole Briscoe, ESPN “SportsCenter” anchor

  • Ryan Briscoe, professional racecar driver

  • Tyler Cameron from “The Bachelorette”
