Sunday, October 4th, 2015 11:30 AM

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. Those runners who did not have the privilege of knowing Murphy before he passed away in 1993 can celebrate his legacy on the trails of Van Cortlandt Park at this race
