"It's More Than Just a Race..."
The image of an icon! Steve Prefonatine was just a young "rube" from the sticks when he arrived at the University of Oregon in the fall of 1969. But in just six short years, he captured the imagination of the running world, set countless records, fought the athletics establishment, performed on the largest stage in the world, inspired a generation of athletes...and then, tragically, left us in his prime. As documented in multiple films, documentaries, and books, Pre was a remarkable runner and an even more remarkable man. This incredible poster gives you a classic black-and-white profile of the man himself, from the lens of Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist Brian Lanker. From the counterculture hairstyle, to the legendary race-day intensity, to the wide-eyed, all-knowing look that revealed a depth of character and worldly understanding that separated him from most other athletes, this crystal-clear vintage reproduction is a must for the wall of any true Pre fan. Including one of his famous inspirational quotes, this stunning gallery-quality poster is a welcome addition to our running collection. Run, Pre, Run!
