Bill Rancic Teams Up with Timex to Run the 2013 ING New York City Marathon

In the name of charity, TV personality Bill Rancic has decided to team up with Timex to run the 2013 ING New York City Marathon on Sunday, November 3, 2013.

As part of the deal, Rancic will start the race in last place, and for every person he passes, Timex will donate $1 to Fab-U-Wish, a charity that grants wishes to women fighting breast and ovarian cancer.

“I have always enjoyed running and it has been a long-time dream of mine to race in the ING New York City Marathon,” said Rancic. “Timex is allowing me to take my dream one step further by supporting my wife’s charity, and raising awareness and much needed funds for those battling breast and ovarian cancer.”

To help him train, Timex will hook Rancic up with its IRONMAN Run Trainer 2.0 GPS watch, which provides real-time pace, distance, and heart rate data—all in hopes to whip him in shape for the big race.
