Most distance runners of that era heard about Prefontaine as a senior in high school, when he broke Craig Virgin's prep two-mile record. By the time he started at Oregon, Prefontaine was a national name, making the cover of Sports Illustrated. I remember seeing it in art class--Prefontaine, Oregon's Distance Prodigy.
Prefontaine's runs in the NCAA cross country were that of legend. In his junior year, Nick Rose of Western Kentucky built up a huge lead over Prefontaine, the defending champion; a lead that many fans thought was insurmountable.
But Prefontaine put his head down, caught Rose, and went on to defend his title. So Truax and Rowe pushed an idea around their lunch running buddies at Nike. They pushed it around the running group at Nike, who pushed it around the promotions people at Nike running, and they were given the chance to settle the question -- which is the best running state in the Pacific Northwest?
How appropriate that an event like this be held on the Nike campus? This event shows off the beauty of the Nike campus in Beaverton, Oregon. The present 4,meter cross-country race it originally started as a 4K starts on the soccer field, with runners from Washington on one end, runners from Oregon on the other.
After a blast from a real live cannon, the runners run at each other for about seventy meters, then mix as they make a sharp turn and head onto the campus. Each year, the crowd has gotten bigger. The first year, there were probably 1, people here for the races. This year, the crowd is about 4, and the vantage points on the finish line are pretty well taken. The crowd has a lot of coaches, athletes, families and Nike employees and their families enjoying a perfect little race.
Yes, a perfect little race. For the past six Novembers, the top forty boys and girls who run prep cross country in Washington and Oregon are invited for this event. It has become a huge amount of pride for athletes from both states.
The scoring is done by adding the performances of both girls and boys races to determine the overall state winner. A Nike goddess of Victory statue, with the team score and the names of the top athletes reside in the Nike Town of the winning state, until the next Border Classic. The template is something that should be done all over the country, but that is probably impossible.
Not to make it hard on Nike, but the energy and enthusiasm put into this event is impossible to replicate. Going outside of the Nike culture, William S.

Perez, former CEO of S. Johnson and Company, fluent in Spanish and having managed global marketing initiatives in over one hundred countries for his family-owned employer.
In an article in the Wall Street Journal, Perez noted that he had run in Nike product for 27 years and has run 11 marathons. But Perez said something in the interview that was more than politic -- he stated that no one can replace Phil Knight, he can only hope to help develop new managers for Nike in the future. The first generation were guys like Jeff Johnson and Geoff Hollister.
Jeff Johnson was the guy who came up with the name Nike in a dream, and shipped early Nike running shoes, according to one story, in boxes housed above a funeral parlor. Jeff is also one of the most prolific running photographers, and is a fine coach, from high school athletes to Olympic athletes. Putting athlete development ahead of his loved home in New Hampshire, Jeff spent several years in Palo Alto, helping coach and found the Nike Farm Team.
Jeff now lives in New Hampshire, and his drive and energy are part of what make events like the Border Clash spring from Nike.
Geoff Hollister was the first promo guy for Nike. A steeplechaser at Oregon, Hollister sold shoes from his car trunk, and convinced Steve Prefontaine to come on board with a tiny little shoe brand called Nike.
Hollister spent his last few years at Nike developing, with Nelson Farris, archives for the company and the sport. Most summers you would see Hollister at a track meet, or summer camps. He is the epitome of the grassroots guy. Those were the kind of guys that Nike picked in the old days. And today, Josh Rowe and John Truax show that the spirit and craziness of a company selling a few thousand pairs of shoes can be passed along when a company hits 12 and a half billion dollars in sales.
Cross-country is the purest form of running, over hill and on trails, and one thing matters -- he or she who gets from point A to point B the fastest is champion. He or she who runs from point A to point B and finishes second, tenth, fiftieth also has the self-knowledge gained that the mud, sludge and perspiration was honorably earned, and that there is honor and respect gained from such battles with our modern selves.
Would this be the year? Last year was the fastest, as Galen Rupp lead six runners under 14 minutes and Katie Leary ran sixteen flat, 29 seconds ahead of the crowd. The girls' race started with the blast of a cannon. The 40 runners from Washington and the 40 runners from Oregon met at the XC mark and made a quick turn which took them onto the Nike campus.
The crowd of 4, plus fans cheered on the runners as they went onto the campus. Helicopters followed the runners around campus, giving fans a chance to see the race on large TV screens under white canopies near the finish line. But you can't change long-developed habits -- most fans ran to the one-mile mark, then to the two-mile mark back to the finish line where they could see the last meters. Looking totally relaxed was the young woman in third, Brianna Felnagle of Washington, a senior from Bellarmine Prep and the state 4A champion.
Felnagle began her move at nine minutes, moving into second place, and by eleven minutes, began building a lead. As the runners came onto the soccer field, with less than meters to go, the team race was too tight to call. Washington had first, and there were ten Oregon and Washington runners battling for the next critical positions.
Brianna Fernagle of Washington, her tough pace and strong form separating her from the crowd, won by twenty seconds, with a fine In second was Holli Dieu of Oregon, in In third was Oregon's Natalie Todd-Zebell in Probably the most pivotal figure in the Oregon win was fourth place, with Oregonian Ilsa Paulson running Washington's Jane Larson of Washington was fifth in
