The spirit of Ted Corbitt was alive and well at his namesake race as more than 4,000 runners enjoyed mild December weather for running 9.3 miles in Central Park this morning. Two runners at opposite ends of their respective careers turned in particularly noteworthy performances befitting the pioneering legacy of NYRR’s founding president, who died at age 88 in 2007.
The color orange was highly visible at today’s Ted Corbitt 15K Classic, and for good reason: By wearing orange today, runners sustained a commitment to giving to the community that was established on November 4, the date of the cancelled ING New York City Marathon, when thousands of orange-clad runners journeyed by ferry and on foot to the most devastated neighborhoods of Staten Island to support Hurricane Sandy relief.
