The New York Marathon has attracted quite the crowd this year, from athletes to celebrities like Ryan Reynolds and Howard Stern’s wife, Beth Ostrosky.

The event actually attracts quite the VIP following, from spectators to runners; last year, Katie Holmes also took part running in the New York Marathon... this year there was also a fake Borat, as spotted by Perez Hilton!

The 2008 NYC Marathon was won by Paula Radcliffe, her third win in the competition, an an incredible feat just months after participating in the Beijing Olympics.

The slideshow below highlights some of the top running gear for New York Marathon participants, from self-cooling jackets to fitness shoes and GPS pedometers.
