Here’s a complete list of famous folks entered in the race, and below are some of their stories (if you don’t already know them).
Cameron, one of the most popular cast members of season 15 of The Bachelorette, will be running the New York Marathon.

Tiki Barber – New York Giants
The former New York Giant has run several marathons, setting his personal best in 4:44:47 at the 2018 New York City Marathon. He’s running in support of NYRR Team for Kids. Barber played for the New York Giants for 10 seasons and attended the University of Virginia where he was inducted into the hall of fame in 2011.
Jason Sehorn – New York Giants
Sehorn would admittedly much rather be on a bike than running (he’s an avid mountain biker), but regardless he’ll be lacing up on Sunday in support of The Foundation for Tomorrow which gives to orphaned children. This weekend will be his first marathon, so it’ll be interesting to see what the former NFL player-turned cyclist can do.
Kikkan Randall – Olympic gold medallist (cross-country skiing)
Randall is an American cross-country skier who won the 2018 Olympic women’s team sprint. The athlete was diagnosed with stage two breast cancer just three months after winning Olympic gold. On Sunday Randall is running for AKTIV Against Cancer.
