Thousands of runners packed the streets and sidewalks of Nassau County Sunday for the Long Island Marathon.

The race began at 8 a.m. at the Mitchel Athletic Complex in Uniondale.

The finish line was at Eisenhower Park in East Meadow.

The race meant extensive road closures and added security.

Extra officers were on hand in light of last year's Boston Marathon bombing.
