Last Chance Runner
I saw the 1973 Pre-Ngeno PAC 8 XC RACE also held at Stanford.
Not as classic as the 1969 race but Ngeno tried to burn Pre off but was caught in the last mile. Both men crossed the lined gasping for oxygen. Pre won. Neither could talk fir several minutes afterward.
A tougher course than the one they run these days.
I trained many times over that course. The backside hill on the other side of Junipero Serra was brutal.
