National Distance Running Hall of Fame History
The National Distance Running Hall of Fame was established on July 11,
1998 to honor the athletes who have lent their names and achievements to
defining the sport of distance running, and whose accomplishments have
brought the sport the fame and recognition it deserves. The Hall houses
historic displays, designed to inspire awe and nostalgia, and serves as a
venue where sports’ greatest stories can be retold.

Voting
Each November, the Hall of Fame welcomes the nomination of runners for
induction into the National Distance Running Hall of Fame. Anyone can
nominate a runner. Qualified candidates must (a) be a distance runner and
(b) have had an influence on the sport of distance running in America.
The Voting Committee, comprised of representatives of the running

nominees and agrees on a list of finalists. Inductees are ultimately chosen
by secret ballot.
