Mission Possible: Reality Stars' 26.2 Mile Battle

Reality stars Ryan Sutter (The Batchelorette) and Ethan Zohn (Survivor: Africa) went head-to-head in this weekend's NYC Marathon.

They ran 26.2 miles through 5 boroughs. The reason? Making the world better.

They were racing each other, with the winner getting money donated to the charity he supports.

Ryan is with First Descents, an organization that empowers young adults with cancer through outdoor "adventure therapy" – things like kayaking and rock climbing.

Ethan is the co-founder of Grassroots Soccer, which uses the power of soccer to educate, inspire, and mobilize communities to stop the spread of HIV. Ethan was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma last year, and is in remission.

Their final race times? Ryan finished at 3 hours and 20 minutes, Ethan in 4 hours and 16 minutes. Impressive!
