In January 1993, PPTC lost our coach, mentor and friend, Harry Murphy. Regina Cahill and Claire Dougherty are spearheading a celebration of Harry’s life. You can be part of the commemorative events beginning in January 2013 by sending your photos and stories about Harry to firstname.lastname@example.org. In his quiet, always encouraging way, Harry launched many runners. He single-handedly turned couch potatoes into sub-4 hour marathoners. He ran 2:41 in his youth and went on to be a founding father of both NYRR and PPTC. His spirit lives on in Prospect Park. Stay tuned for the commemorative events beginning in January 2013.
