Race Recap

A 4-Mile Run for Life

On a damp, chilly morning in Prospect Park, 3,605 runners bundled up and raced four miles to celebrate the legacy of Al Gordon, a man who truly embodied what it means to "Run For Life."

Race Stories

A Brooklyn Race for All Ages

A young runner named Tyler proudly proclaimed, "I ran four miles!" as he crossed the finish line. A fellow racer with a few decades more experience under his belt borrowed a line from Groucho Marx after catching his breath: "I'm gonna live forever or die trying!" Saturday morning's Al Gordon Classic in Prospect Park was a four-mile tribute to a man who lived for 107 healthy, active years.
