Boston and New York, February 1, 2012-The Super Bowl battle between the New

"running" bet between Boston Athletic Association executive director Tom
Grilk and New York Road Runners president and CEO Mary Wittenberg, it was
jointly announced today by race officials.
If the Patriots win, Wittenberg will wear a Tom Brady jersey during the
2012 B.A.A. 5K on Sunday, April 15, during Boston Marathon weekend. If the
Giants prevail, Grilk will don an Eli Manning jersey during the 2012 NYRR
