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 will continue to honor Ted Corbitt's birthday with our yearly 50K.
Price includes medals, shirt, and participation option. Race medals and shirts will be received after ALL finishers in person and virtual have submitted/uploaded their completion of the 50K and shipped within 2-3 weeks.
To recap: 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 2024, We will continue the annual tradition on January 28th 2024, which will be 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.
Option to run 50K can be run in any or consecutive days between January 15th to January 31st, 2024.
