ABOUT THE RACE

Join us as we continue our cross country series with the NYRR Harry Murphy Cross Country. Born in Brooklyn, Harry Murphy (1914-1993) was a founding member of NYRR in 1958 and co-founded the Prospect Park Track Club (PPTC) in 1970. A sign maker by trade, Murphy painted countless signs for NYRR events, earning the nickname "The Brush." As a runner, coach, and mentor, Murphy is remembered by PPTC members for his innovative workouts and for helping many to develop a love for running. Celebrate his legacy on the trails of Van Cortlandt Park, or cheer on the runners with signs that would make Harry Murphy proud!
