For five years, no American runner could beat him at any distance over a mile. But at the age of 24, with his best years still ahead, long-distance runner Steve Prefontaine finally lost. Driving alone at night after a party, Prefontaine crashed his sports car, putting a tragic, shocking end to the life and career of one of the most influential, accomplished runners of our time.
More than 20 years later, Pre continues to influence the running world.
This is my second time running this race. It was cold and windy and beautiful and I LOVED IT! I convinced my boyfriend to run it with me this year. He is not a runner and he did really well too. Plus the shirts were much MUCH cuter this year as opposed to last year. Had a great time.
Loved the race but it was my first so I have nothing to compare it to. Packet pickup was easy. Race was well organized. Results were posted quickly at the event. Course was nice and flat...great for this first timer. I would do it again.
