Joe Kleinerman Classic 10K

A Great Day to Honor Joe K

Bracing temps and a dusting of snow greeted runners at the NYRR Joe Kleinerman 10K, the first New York Road Runners race of 2017 and an opportunity to make good on a promise to #ResolveToRunin the new year.

Joe Kleinerman, a founding member of NYRR who passed away in 2003 at age 91, was a dedicated runner and longtime coach of Millrose Athletic Association. Everyone who ran today kept Kleinerman’s spirit alive with their 6.2 miles in Central Park, as $1 of each entry fee went to a scholarship fund in Kleinerman’s name.

Teshome Mekonen was way out in front as the men’s champion in a time of 30:23, followed by Panuel Mkungo in second place (31:03) and Eric Ojeda in third (31:38). Among the women, Kate Pallardy of the Central Park Track Club New Balance also had a sizable win; her time of 35:31 bested runner-up Belaynesh Fikadu (36:06) and third-place Caroline Lefrak (36:14).
