THE BRONX - A Bronx rehabilitation facility for recovering alcohol and drug addicts will have many representatives in the New York City Marathon in November.

The Odyssey House will have 47 runners, including clients, graduates, staff and volunteers, competing in this year’s race.

The 2012 marathon was canceled last year after a public outcry that the citywide event would take away too many resources that could be used to help victims of Superstorm Sandy.

The New York City Marathon will take place on Nov. 3.
