With the winter racing season in full swing, more than 4,900 runners turned out for 13.1 miles at the NYRR Fred Lebow Manhattan Half. The race, named for the late NYRR president and New York City Marathon co-founder, took runners over a new two-plus-lap course in Central Park.
As a blanket of fog rolled over the park, Jerry Faulkner of the New York Athletic Club cruised through the course, winning the race in 1:12:14. Fellow NYAC member Caroline Lefrak took first in the women’s race, breaking the tape in 1:17:16.
