Wow! Check Out These 6 Celebs Who Won't Be Running the 2018 NYC Marathon

Keep scrolling, and prepare to be floored!


Taylor Swift

Look what you made us do, Taylor—break the news to our readers that you won't be running this year's NYC Marathon! Too bad! With your Reputation for being Fearless, we bet you could have run a Swift personal record!

Dave Chappelle

Chappelle's Show? More like Chappelle's No-Show... as in, Dave Chappelle will be a no-show at this year's New York City Marathon! What will he be doing instead? Perhaps inviting some friends over to play basketball and purify themselves in the waters of Lake Minnetonka! Sorry about the Half-Baked jokes, Dave—we know you're a standup guy!


Bob Keeshan

Television's beloved Captain Kangaroo will not be "hopping" to the start line in Staten Island this fall—he died in 2004!  :-(

Penn Jillette

You won't see the magician/comedian/author/performer running the 2018 New York City Marathon, but it won't be an illusion—he'll just be elsewhere!




Roseanne Barr

It's no conspiracy theory—the outspoken standup and TV star won't be at the starting line of the 2018 New York City Marathon! Did someone cancel her appearance? Nope, it was never scheduled to begin with! Did the word race scare her off? Maybe!
