Date:10/30/2007

Both Winners to Run ING New York City Marathon 2007 and be Recognized for

Courage and Perseverance by New York Road Runners and Avis

NEW YORK, Oct. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- New York Road Runners and Avis Rent A Car System, LLC, announced today that Vincent Corso and Daniel Trush have won the fourth-annual Avis "We Try Harder" award in conjunction with the ING New York City Marathon 2007. The award celebrates people who endeavor to overcome considerable obstacles through courage and extraordinary effort. A panel that included representatives from Avis, Achilles Track Club and New York Road Runners selected the two winners from among hundreds of ING New York City Marathon participants nominated by friends and family.

Vincent Corso, Westfield, N.J.

Corso will be participating in his first ING New York City Marathon this year. Corso weighed 305 pounds in 2005 when the Westfield, N.J. native decided to change his life by joining a weight loss program. By 2006, he had lost nearly 150 pounds and reached his goal weight of 162 pounds. Corso then began what he referred to as his first "real run." Soon after, his wife gave him a membership to New York Road Runners, a gesture that he refers to as "the best gift [he's] ever received." Now Corso -- or "Skinny Vinny" as some have taken to calling him -- is a passionate runner. After completing a half-marathon earlier this year, Corso is set for the biggest challenge of his life. Only two years after weighing more than 300 pounds, this accountant will be lined up with 38,000 runners at the start of the ING New York City Marathon 2007.

Daniel Trush, New York, N.Y.

As a 12-year-old, Daniel Trush's life was filled with movement. From music to athletics, Trush was never standing still. However, while playing basketball with his family one day, Trush came running off the court with his head in his hands. What his father thought was disappointment from missing a shot turned out to be a brain aneur
