World-Class? How Many Marathons?

There is constant hand-wringing in Toronto over whether or not we are a world-class city (my answer is No - liveable yes, but puny still in so many dimensions).

One symptom of our problem is sorting out the branding.

If you are looking to go spend a lot of money on going somewhere and running a marathon which of these two would you choose, separated by all of two weeks?

I'd like you to pick the first, so you might come running not too far from my home.

Or you could go to the multiplicity of Boston Marathons, New York City Marathons, London Marathons, and Chicago Marathons. Those pathetic little cities hold only one major one anyone knows about.
