National Distance Running Hall Of Fame Names Jeff Darman
Its 2002 Lebow Award Recipient


November 1, 2002 (Utica, New York) -- The National Distance Running Hall of Fame has named Jeff Darman of Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, the winner of its 2002 Fred Lebow Award for lifetime achievement.

Darman is president of Darman Associates, a sports marketing and media relations agency whose clients include Road Race Management, Running Times the Sports Goods Manufacturers Association and Moving Comfort, among others. He is a former president of the Road Runner’s Club of America and has actively supported a number of important causes in distance running over the past 30 years.

“While I have changed careers several times, my love of running has remained constant,” Darman said. “It’s certainly an honor to receive an award named after a great visionary like Fred Lebow.”
Established to honor the spirit and commitment of the man who co-founded the New York City Marathon and who worked tirelessly to build the race into a world-renowned distance running event, the Lebow Award will be presented to Darman at a breakfast held in his honor on Friday, November 1 at 9:00 a.m., at the JPMorgan Chase building in New York.

“Having known and worked with Fred Lebow for many years, and as a friend of my predecessors, Don Kardong and Julia Emmons, this is particularly meaningful,” Darman continued. “To walk or run in their footsteps is something that will always elicit great pride in me.”

Life-long commitment to athletes’ rights and grass roots running, including helping to shape the 1978 Amateur Sports Act

Acting as a behind-the-scenes facilitator for numerous causes in distance running, including challenging the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) over athlete bans in the 1970’s, and leading the effort to rescind AAU/TAC control over all competition

The development of open prize money in the 1980’s; the emergence of the RRCA as the national grass roots running organization in the U.S., and the development of the RRCA’s “Roads Scholars” program in the 1990s

Serving on the RRCA, USATF, ARRA, USOC and PRRO boards.


“Jeff Darman, like Fred Lebow, has demonstrated vision, dedication and commitment to the sport of distance running,” said John Petrone, director of the National Distance Running Hall of Fame. “Jeff’s achievements reflect the spirit not only of this sport, but also of Fred Lebow—a man who demonstrated that the ability to succeed comes from inner strength and personal determination.”

This year’s Lebow Award breakfast is sponsored by the National Distance Running Hall of Fame, the New York Road Runners Club, JPMorgan Chase, Runner’s World, Larry Rawson and the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.
