RE: What was your favorite race at Hayward Field? The top pros share their favorite Hayward field memories
In the 10,000 Gary Bjorklund ran the last 5,000 with one shoe and outkicked Bill Rodgers for 3rd, behind Shorter and Virgin, to make the team. The East Grandstand, where I sat in the 2nd row, was LOUD.
And the essence of Track at Hayward Field. A couple of days after Harvey Glance emerged on the scene, winning the 100, he walked down the backstretch to the start of the 200 heats and the East Grandstand started applauding. He looked around, clearly wondering what was causing the applause. And then realized it was for him. They knew who he was - and appreciated him.
