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.
I was disappointed in the shirts this year and I do not like getting water from a garden hose at the water stops. Also, the AG awards where nice ($50) but I think having to travel to Raligh-Durham to cash them in is a bit much. I live 3 hours out.
Nice small race. Course takes you around Cherry Point Air Station residential area so it's nice to run. Volunteers were excellent. Not much after refreshments but it was too cold to stick around anyway.
They had enough porta-potties at the start. Had wave starting. Good crowd support. Easy to see mile markers. Great party after race, soup, snacks, beer and a good band. Awards announced at the post race party. Good time of the year for a half marathon. Nice place to spend a few days after the race.
