At Briggs Nissan - the premiere Nissan dealership in Manhattan, Kansas - the news that Olympic Marathoner Ryan Hall will share insights with runners at the ING New York City Marathon 2011 as part of the Innovation for Endurance program with Rodale, Inc is great.

Hall is the fastest American marathon runner on the circuit today. He has achieved a time of 2:04:58 at the 2011 Boston Marathon in April. He will not be competing, but he will be involved in the ING New York City Marathon 2011.

He will be greeting runners at the Innovation for Endurance display at the ING New York City Marathon Health and Fitness Expo at the Jacob Javits Convention Center on November 4 from 1-2pm, and on November 5 from 12-1pm.

“The comradery, excitement and inspiration around ING New York City Marathon provide a receptive backdrop for Nissan to share about our innovation,” said Jon Brancheau, Vice President, Marketing for Nissan North America.

“We are glad to be back as exclusive automotive sponsor to showcase the all-electric LEAF at the world’s most high-profile marathon event.”

The Nissan LEAF was named “World Car of the Year” at the New York International Auto Show in April. It is the first 100% electric, zero-emission vehicle available to the mass market. It will be on display at the Health and Fitness Expo from November 3-5, where the electric vehicle will serve as pace car for the second year in a row.

The Nissan LEAF went on a “Breathe Easy Tour” of New York City from October 24- Nov.5, making stops at various high-traffic locations including Times Square, Battery Park and the New York City Marathon finish line.
