Navarra Profile

Race Results Weekly reminds us all of the recent profile in the New York Times on Navarra as well. The link isn't working on the RunnersWeb site, but should work here.

Victor Navarra Passes Away

Today's NY Times has a brief story on Vic Navarra, who orchestrated the NY Marathon start for oh-so-many years and was a key cog in New York's running community. He died on Sunday at 55, succumbing to cancer.

Favorite Stocking Stuffer

Mmm ... Gu .... (a six-pack is always a welcome gift).

PPTC Web Site

... seems to be down this morning, though looks like it's probably just one of those domain name issues. When it's back up, check out info on the upcoming Cherry Tree 10 Mile Race (or 3-person relay) in February.

Happy Holidays

Happy holidays to all the runners out there. Apologize for the short hiatus -- will have more posts and information over the weekend.

Anyone out there running the New Year's Eve races in Central Park or Prospect Park? Would love to hear from you (and get pictures ...)

Other Prospect Park Loop Runs

It took me about 5 minutes to remember that there's at least one other fun run in the park that covers the whole loop - and it takes place on New Year's Eve.

Noting this, from this month's Slope Sports Newsletter:

Monday, December 31 11:15pm

Ring in a happy and healthy New Year by joining us for the New Year’s Eve Fun Run in Prospect Park . Organized by Slope Sports and Brooklyn Road Runners. One loop of the Park (approx. 3.3M) Free pair of running gloves to first 150 registrants. Fireworks and hot chocolate at Finish Line! $20 registration fee before 12/31; $25 Race Day fee. Register in-person at Slope Sports; download an application at or on-line at

Stats from NYRR Holiday 4 Miler

Of the 4,951 listed finishers, 470, or slightly less than 10 percent, listed Brooklyn as their hometown. That number may be slightly understated, as more than half of the runners simply listed New York or New York City (though if you're from Brooklyn, why not celebrate it!)

Top female finisher was Anna Fyodorova, who ran a 26:43. Top male finisher was Felipe Garcia, with a 20:38 (good for third overall). Congrats to everyone who ran in this, the last qualifying race for next year's New York Marathon.

Fastest Loop Ever in Prospect Park?

Here's a question to ponder: What's the fastest loop ever in Prospect Park (which measures 3.35 miles)? There are plenty of 5K races in the park each year, but no formal races that do the complete loop (the PPTC's Harry's Handicap on Jan. 1, notwithstanding).

Anyone know?

Early NYRR schedule posted

Additional races have been posted on the NYRR Web site - and yes, the Bronx Half is again in the middle of winter.

Some key race dates:

1/12 (Saturday): Fred Lebow 5 Mile
1/27 (Sunday): Manhattan Half Marathon
2/10 (Sunday): Bronx Half Marathon
2/23 (Saturday): Al Gordon 4 Mile

Nothing yet in March - we'll see if we can find out when the Brooklyn Half is on the schedule.

Corrected date to get Turkey Trot medals

Please note, the deadline for runners who didn't receive PPTC Turkey Trot medals and wish to receive one is Dec. 7, NOT Dec. 30, as listed in an earlier post.

From the PPTC Web site:

"Please email by December 7th your name, bib number, and pick up location (Brooklyn or NY) to and we’ll notify you when the medals are ready for pick up. "

Sunday, December 2, 2007


No real news today, just a celebration of dashing about in Prospect Park this morning, vastly overdressed, with an inch of snow on the ground. Hope everyone had a chance to experience the first coming of winter 2007-08.

Delhagen Wins Hot Chocolate 15K

Taylor Delhagen of Brooklyn Road Runners captured the Hot Chocolate 15K in Central Park today, winning in a time of 50:43, a 5:27 pace.

Markings on Cadman Plaza Park Path

Someone has marked off distances on the path in Cadman Plaza Park in Brooklyn Heights - shocking I tell, you shocking. Someone has no decency, giving runners an opportunity to do a speed workout and accurately measure their pace ... Hah!

Various workouts appear possible, though I've still got to figure out exactly where they end. But a 200, 400, 600, 800, 1200, 1400 and mile are all possible. It's also not clear if they are in yards or meters.

The full loop, by the way, measures 0.41 miles - 2,164 feet, or 721 yards (this from the New York Parks department). If you include just the synthetic path, that's 0.36 miles, or 1,900 feet.

New standards for Olympic Trials Marathon?

For those Olympic marathon hopefuls, note that the USATF has reportedly upped the standards for qualifying for the men's trials. No more 'A' and 'B' standard, but a swift 2:19, according to Race Results Weekly. That's three minutes faster than the 2:22 you could coast through on.

Other ways to qualify: run a half-marathon at 1:05, or a 10K in 28:30.

Smartmom's column on Turkey Trot

Louise Crawford, who writes the Smartmom column for the Brooklyn Papers, weighs in with her experience at the Turkey Trot last week.

Her verdict:

"All sizes, all shapes, all colors, all abilities, all genders, the Turkey Trot is the perfect Brooklyn race.

Most of all, Smartmom loved the bystanders who seemed to take great pleasure in cheering runners they didn’t even know."

No Medal at Turkey Trot

Due to a larger-than-expected turnout at the PPTC's Turkey Trot, not all finishers received medals as promised. Note the following, which was posted on the PPTC Web site:

"Due to a larger than expected turnout, we ran out of medals after the first 1,000 runners on race day. We’d like to make arrangements for any registered finisher who did not receive a medal to pick one up at a Jack Rabbit Sports store if interested. Please email by December 30th your name, bib number, and pick up location (Brooklyn or NY) to and we’ll notify you when the medals are ready for pick up."

Once we have the info, we'll pass it along ...

Results From Turkey Trot

More than 1,000 finishers in this year's annual Thanksgiving Day race at Prospect Park. That may be a record ... Congratulations to everyone who ran!

Ongoing Running Debates

Among the many ongoing running debates is whether to shop locally and support your local running store (i.e. JackRabbit, Slope Sports et al) or go online, where you can generally get savings that beat anything from the store.

The problem/advantage that places like Road Runner Sports and National Running Center offer is that, for a yearly fee, you can get all sorts of cool stuff and special offers.

What you don't get is the special attention that running stores can offer, essential when you are looking at new kinds of running shoes, etc.

So, note the following order I placed with National Running Center today (enticed, I must say, with the offer of a free Frank Shorter running shirt). I'm a member, paying $30 a year to do so. With that, I get 10 percent off all orders as well as free UPS ground shipping.

-- A 24-pack of Vanilla Gu
-- 3 pairs of Coolmesh running socks
-- 1 pair of Hind Alpha running shorts
-- 1 Under Amour heat-gear running shirt (I have two UA hats and LOVE them)
-- 1 pair of Hind running tights
-- 1 Frank Shorter long-sleeve running shirt (which, as mentioned, was free with a $100 order)

Total cost, including shipping: $109 (and no, the colors weren't ugly - I had plenty of choices).

I probably saved at least $30 on comparable items, and I picked up most of the gear that I needed to get me through the winter. And still I feel vaguely guilty ....

Prospect Park Thanksgiving Turkey Trot

One of the things I want to do on this blog is get the word out about local road races. If you're running, you already know about the slew of races put on by NYRR, most of them in Manhattan. But I'd bet there are at least three dozen races in Brooklyn on a given year - if not more (obviously, the challenge is to keep track of them).

So, that said, for those of you who are in town during Thanksgiving, check out the annual 5-miler hosted by the Prospect Park Track Club. Race kicks off, rain or shine, at 9 a.m. near the skating rink in the southern part of the park. It's a lower loop, plus a full-loop of the park. What's best? Pies to the top runners in the various categories. All finishers get medals, and there's usually a freebie that's *not* a T-shirt.

Registration information is here. And the club is always on the lookout for volunteers if you're not up for running that day.

Brooklyn Finishers in New York?

Alas, not yet. The searchable marathon database that's posted on the NYC Marathon site only includes breakdowns by state, not city. Not sure when/if this will change.

The top Brooklyn male was Edvard Gapak, with a time of 2:28:04. Leading the women was Victoria Ganushina, with a 2:45:15. Obviously, those times could change if they were among the 2,000 or so runners in the Orange corral whose times were effected by a glitch at the start.

After New Haven Run-In, Charges on Hashers Dropped

The hashers who got busted by New Haven, CT, police after trying to mark a hash with flour in an Ikea parking lot will donate $4,000 to a local charity after charges against them were dropped. See the AP article.

Noting that there's a vibrant hashing community here in New York City, with plenty of Brooklyn events as well.

Coney Island Turkey Trot on Sunday?

Brooklyn Road Runners has reference on its Web site to a Coney Island Sports Foundation Turkey Trot 5K at 11:30 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 18? I'm e-mailing the contact listed; anyone have information or a link to an application?

Some Runners May Have Faster Times

A glitch in the starting mat may have caused some runners to get their net times recorded, rather than their chip times. Note the following, sent out this evening:

From: Jon Skilling <>
At: 11/06 17:06:47
At the start of the 2007 ING New York City Marathon, there was a technical problem that caused your start time to not be recorded when you crossed the starting line. Since this affects your finish time, we would like to make a correction.

Please reply to this e-mail and indicate either:
* How long it took you to cross the starting line after the sound of the start cannon
* Your net finish time (chip time) for the race (i.e. the time on your watch)

Please send this information to us as soon as possible, so that we can update our website results and print your certificate for the race. In order to have this information reflected on your certificate, we need
your response before November 13.

Foot Locker Results

Not sure how relevant this is, but the Brooklyn runner in the Foot Locker 5-Borough Challenge finished third. Rebecca Center ran a 3:49:24. Before anyone takes me to task, anyone who steps up to the starting line and participates in a marathon is a winner, and a 3:49 is a great time, so congratulations.

Yet the runners were running together through Brooklyn (e.g. it didn't seem like there was a race) and don't represent the top times (or the top group of times) from the various boroughs. Once NYRR releases more detailed results, I'll see if I can pinpoint a) the top runners and b) the top city runners by group, based on a modified cross-country system of scoring.

Great Day for NYC Marathon

Lots of fast times, based on the informal sample of friends I've seen. As NYRR releases detailed results, we'll celebrate the top Brooklyn performers in the various categories.

Khalid's Back

Brooklyn's Khalid Khannouchi finished fourth in today's Olympic Men's Marathon Trials, and may get a slot to the Olympics if Dathan Ritzenheim qualifies, and chooses to run, the 10,000 meters. He ran a strong race and managed to grab fourth after Dan Browne came down with calf cramps. The awesome performances by Ryan Hall, Ritz and Brian Sell (who ran a steady race and passed Khalid and Browne in the second half) have to be put in context with the death of top contender Ryan Shay (who was favored in the 2004 trials).

Fall Has Arrived ...

And with it, some good news -- some good weather conditions seem likely for next Sunday's NY Marathon. Noting that the forecast has changed in the past couple of days (rain was mentioned), and is likely to do so within the next week, but looks like runners will be starting out the day in the mid-50s. Maybe a little cooler would be nice -- we'll see.

Last 10 Miles of NY Marathon

It's the last weekend before the NYC Marathon, which means it's time for a re-examination of the last 10 miles of the course. Worth doing if you haven't seen it before - and fun to do with people with varying levels of experience. I ran it this morning with a group of folk from Brooklyn - some experienced in NYC, some not, and learned a lot.

The course route is below.

Alberto Salazar article

Nice piece about Salazar in the NYTimes Play magazine this weekend by "Duel in the Sun" author John Brant.

The 1983 Boston Marathon race, which featured Salazar and Dick Beardsley running neck-and-neck for almost all of the distance, is one of the most compelling races I've ever seen. Should a similar situation arise during next weekend's Trials, or even one of the high-profile U.S. marathons, one wonders if distance-running will get the boost it deserves? Or will more people be focused on the Nov. 4 Patriots-Colts matchup the following day?

Transportation to Start

Runners are buzzing about the latest missive from the NYC Marathon folk regarding transportation to the race next Sunday. Right now, they are aggressively pushing marathoners who don't have official transportation lined up to head to the Staten Island Ferry, in part due to construction on the Verrazano Bridge. Note this: Private vehicles, including charter buses, are not guaranteed arrival in time for the race start.

At least two options are available through Brooklyn, thru the Prospect Park Track Club and Brooklyn Road Runners. Both have buses leaving at 5:30 a.m. and 5:45 a.m. Both leave well in advance of the 7 a.m. bridge closing.

Bed-Stuy 10K Results

Results for the 10K race were posted last weekend. They can be found here (in .pdf form).

Staten Island Half Marathon

This is a bit delayed, so apologies. Noting that Brooklyn residents did well in last week's Staten Island Half Marathon, placing second in the both the men's and women's races. Congrats to Marilyn Charles and Taylor Delhagen! Here's an article from the Staten Island Advance.

JackRabbit Training Programs

JackRabbit is offering a number of training programs, including running, yoga and cycling. Check out the list here.

New York Marathon Transportation

Two local running clubs are offering marathoners a chance to get to the New York Marathon start by providing buses that leave near Prospect Park on Marathon Sunday.

The Brooklyn Road Runners is providing a bus that leaves at 5:30 a.m. from Circles (15th Street and Prospect Park West). Price is $15 for members, $20 for non-members. To reserve a spot, contact Steve Bonal at 917-238-9947.

The Prospect Park Track Club has a similar bus that will leave at 5:45 a.m. from 9th Street and Prospect Park West. Price is $10 for members and $15 for non-members. Checks can be made out to PPTC and sent to PPTC, P.O. Box 150658, Van Brunt Station, Brooklyn, NY 11215-0658. Questions? E-mail or leave a message at (718) 595 - 2049.

Both clubs say the buses will be leaving on the dot in order to get across the bridge before it shuts down for traffic, so if you make reservations, be on time.

71 Chicago Finishers

According to the Chicago Marathon database (with unofficial results), 71 Brooklyn residents finished today's race. That's out of 128 registered ... though who knows at this point how many started. There have been some reports that only 4,000 of the 35,000 who started finished - that doesn't seem likely based on the Brooklyn results (We're special, yes, but not that special).

Sarah Joyce was the top woman with a chip time of 3:11:41. Adam Mulia led the men with a 2:43:33.

Anyone who was at Chicago and is reading this (still growing, still in beta, blog), feel free to post your comments about the experience.

The Chicago Heat - Will There Be Ramifications?

The comments on some of the blogs and some of the stories about today's Chicago Marathon that I've seen make me think that there could be some major changes in how marathons are handled if there are heat problems. Already one death has been reported, and it's possible there will be more. The comments on this blog are mixed, but one gets the idea that a) if running officials hadn't canceled the race, it could have been a lot worse and b) if New York faces a similar situation, they'll be a lot quicker in pulling the plug. Note the number of races that NYRR has made "fun runs" because of weather conditions; one wonders what would happen if it's the New York Marathon?

88 Degrees of Separation

Eighty-eight friggin' degrees in the first week of October in Chicago. Can't imagine what it was like to try to race (we'll try to get some race feedback from some of the runners). At the Bed-Stuy 10K, it was "only" 82 degrees and felt a lot hotter - a reasonably flat course made that much tougher by the lack of shade along most of the way.

We'll post top Brooklyn finishers from Chicago, as well as results from some the local races as soon as they are available.

Grete's Gallop Results

Marilyn Charles, 39, was the top Brooklyn woman to finish today's half-marathon in Central Park, clocking a 1:26:57, good enough for eighth overall and second in her division. Other results are here.

Upcoming Races

Plenty of races to choose from as the weather (hopefully, finally) turns cooler:

Sunday, Oct. 7:
The 11th annual Eileen Dugan 5K takes place. Start time is 10 a.m. over at 4th Place and Court Street. The cost is $15, with proceeds benefiting the Circle of Hope Cancer Foundation. The race is done in conjunction with Brooklyn Road Runners.

Sunday, Oct 7:
The 26th annual Bed-Stuy 10K kicks off at 10 a.m. as part of the Bed-Stuy Gateway Family Fun Fest. The race starts at 1368 Fulton Street.

Sunday, Oct. 14:
New York Road Runners hosts the Staten Island Half Marathon at 9:40 a.m. The race starts over by the Staten Island Yankees ballpark. If you’re lacking a car, the best way to get over there is by the ferry (which packs up pretty quickly - make sure you’re on the 8:30 a.m. at the latest).

Sunday, Oct. 14:
Cross-country runners get a chance to stride through the trails at Van Cortlandt Park in the Harry Murphy 5K. The race starts at 11:30 a.m. (Allow for at least 90 minutes of travel on the subway on a Sunday morning).

Sunday, Oct. 14:
Those looking to stay in Brooklyn on this Sunday morning can head down to Bay Ridge for the Women Against Violence 5K. Start time is 10 a.m., over at John Paul Jones Park at the intersection of 101st Street and Fourth Ave. The race is done in conjunction with Brooklyn Road Runners.

Thursday, October 4, 2007

Bed-Stuy 10K this weekend.

Sunday, Oct. 7, at 10 a.m. Worth checking out for those of you who aren't doing the Grete's Gallop the previous day.

Marion Jones

Numerous media outlets, including the New York Times, are reporting that Marion Jones will plead guilty to lying about her use of steroids before the 2000 Olympic Games. That may mean her five medals (three gold, two bronze) will be taken away.

Runner's World, Meet Brooklyn

There's not one, but two Brooklyn references in the latest issue of Runner's World.

A letter by Donnell Suggs, now of Atlanta, reminisces about "the Brooklyn Bridge mile and runs through Prospect Park at night."

There's also a photo of the Brooklyn Bridge Park as part of an article by Ed Eyestone on how to hit your target tempo pace. For those who haven't run there, it's a nice addition to any run near the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges, or the Promenade.

ING NYC Marathon Tune-Up Results

Results for the race, three loops of Central Park, have been posted on the NYRR site. Leading the way were Brooklyn residents Ted Towle of Urban Athletics (1:45:34, good for a 5:51 pace) and Taylor Delhagen of Brooklyn Road Runners at 1:46:32. Alexandra Warren was the top Brooklyn finisher among women (and 8th overall), clocking a 2:06:03.

2007 Tunnel to Tower Run

Results are here. Kieran O'Neill was the top Brooklyn male finisher (3rd overall) with a chip time of 17:40 for the 5K run . Tracy Lewis was the top Brooklyn female, with a time of 27:06.

The things you see while running in Brooklyn ...

If you're in Dumbo, you shouldn't be surprised ...

Music That Heals Start

Here's a look at the start of today's Music that Heals 5K.

New York Times article on Fifth Avenue Mile

The article in today's paper quotes Abraham Weintraub

Fast Times at Fifth Avenue Mile

Eleven Brooklyn men broke 5:00 at today's Fifth Avenue Mile, led by 33-year-old Brett Albright, who dashed the distance in 4:47. Anna Fyodorova ran the fastest time among Brooklyn women, clocking a 5:38.

Of note: Noel Haynes, 61, a member of Brooklyn Road Runners, ran a 5:31. Abraham Weintraub, at 97, the oldest competitor in the field, ran an 18:49. And Kieran Newcomb, 14, won his age group with a blazing 4:57. Yowsa!

Music That Heals 5K on Sunday

For those of you seeking a good, fun 5K race this weekend, check out the Music That Heals 5K on Sunday, Sept. 30, in Prospect Park. Race time is 10 a.m., starts in the park just outside of Bartel Pritchard Square at 15th Street and Prospect Park West (so you get the downhill in the beginning and the uphill around mile 2). Race day registration at Shepherd's Hall at Holy Name Church. Proceeds to provide musical performances at hospital bedsides and other facilities for children and adults who are seriously ill.

Race-day signup is $20. There's also a pee-wee race for $10.

More information can be found at The closest subway stop to the race is the F train, which stops at 15th Street/Prospect Park West.
