The New York City Marathon kicked off Sunday morning, and 3 Rhode Islanders finished in the top 20.
Kim Smith finished 6th overall for the women, Katie Dicamillo in 15th, and Amy Hastings in 20th.
The NYC Marathon was canceled last year due to Hurricane Sandy's destruction throughout the city and surrounding areas.
This year's race comes almost 7 months after the tragedies at Boston's Marathon in April. The Associated Press reports that security in New York was heightened in response to that, with barricades set up all around Central Park.
