Through an added bonus from the ,ING Run for Something Better’ program for women, the ING New York City Marathon 2005 will increase its prize purse to $ 130,000 for the women's champion, the largest first-place prize in the history of marathoning.

”Today in collaboration with our partners at ING, New York Road Runners takes another milestone step in the support and encouragement of women's running,” said Mary Wittenberg, president of New York Road Runners and the race director of the Marathon.

More money for the women¹s winner than for the men’s. 

“We believe this to be the first time that any major sports event has put up more money for the women¹s winner than for the men’s. So we are breaking ground not only in the sport of long-distance running but in all of sport,” said Mary Wittenberg. 

The men’s champion will collect $ 100.000

The men’s champion of the five-borough 26.2-mile race on Sunday, November 6, will collect $ 100,000. The added $ 30,000 for the women’s winner comes from the ,ING Run for Something Better’. Additional prize money will also be paid to the women¹s second-place ($ 20,000 additional for a total $6 5,000), third-place ($ 10,000 additional for a total $ 40,000), and fourth-place ($ 5,000 additional for a total $ 25,000) finishers.

Since the ING Run for Something Better program's inception in 2003, ING has contributed close to half a million dollars to community and youth running organizations.
