Joe Kleinerman 10K

Race Recap

2014 is Off and Running

The 2014 racing season kicked off on Saturday morning at the Joe Kleinerman 10K, an annual event named in honor of a founding member of New York Road Runners, and the longtime coach of the Millrose Athletic Association.

Kleinerman, a dedicated runner throughout his lifetime, lived to age 91. On the eve of what would have been his 102nd birthday, more than 4,700 runners lined up to race near the east side of the 102nd Street Transverse in Central Park. The race preserved Kleinerman’s legacy by donating $1 from every entry fee to a scholarship fund for youth runners.

A Welcome Break from the Cold

In a week that featured the lowest temperature in New York City in nearly a decade, the gray skies and misty rain at Saturday’s Joe Kleinerman 10K were a relatively welcome change from the biting cold.

With temperatures in the low 50s at the start of the race, many runners found themselves ditching the long-sleeves and spandex from days before in favor of the basic singlet and shorts kit. The 40-degree swing in temperature also created a rolling fog throughout the park, particularly over areas like Harlem Meer and the Reservoir.
