THE BRONX - About 4,000 runners hit the streets Sunday in the third New York Road Runners Bronx Half-Marathon.

Participants started near Lehman College, ran down the Grand Concourse and Mosholu Parkway in the 13.1-mile course.

Runners crossed the Goulden Avenue finish line to cheering crowds."It was exciting," said Jorge Fernandez, who was among the first to complete the race. "A little cold, but I performed very well and I am very happy."

Dozens of volunteers spent hours setting up thousands of cups filled with water to keep the runners hydrated.
