In keeping with the tradition of honoring the life and legacy of the father of American long-distance running, Theodore 'Ted' Corbitt, Black Men Run NYC/The NYC Way is hosting a new race and once more hosting a virtual 15K, both with standout medals! Yes, that's medals with an 's'!
Since 2014 we've been paying homage to the Corbitt legacy, and since 2016 we've offered a medal for the completion of NYRR's Ted Corbitt 15K which takes place Dec. 4th 2021. This year and into 2022, you can earn our 15K medal and the 50K medal for the completion of each distance with virtual options will be made available (see below).
Price includes medals, t-shirt, and participation. Race medals and shirts will be received by January 31, 2022.
To recap: to start 2021 and to mark the birth anniversary of Ted Corbitt (Sunday, Jan. 31), we embarked on an ultra-marathon to 'Ted Corbitt Way' in the Bronx - the 50K being the most appropriate distance since this was known to be a regular training run for him during his lifetime. As we move into 2022, this will now be an annual tradition open to the public with an option to earn a medal!
It's our ongoing tradition to aid in the preservation of the legacy of another Black man, especially in run history. We hope that you will join in and support us.
