The New York City Marathon usually falls just after Halloween, and as a result, there are always plenty of runners in costume.

On Sunday, one costume in particular delighted thousands of spectators along the 26.2-mile route: Jesus Christ, barefoot, with a large cross strapped to his back.

The sight of the Messiah among a parted sea of runners was reported by dozens of witnesses, many of whom snapped photos of the jogging Jesus and uploaded them to Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
