Norb Sander won the NYC Marathon in 1974. Norb was loved by his family, friends and the thousands of kids who ran at the NB Track Armory. Norb Sander made the NB Armory his life work, and took an iconic structure and built the House that Norb built, a finely tuned athletic sanctuary. The NB Track Armory has over 85 events and 120,000 athletes a year.
Norb Sander passed away on March 17, 2017. That Norb was inducted into the 2017 NYRR hall of Fame is a tribute to the amazing legacy that the good doctor left. His friend, Mike Frankurt provided a wonderful overview of Norb’s life and one of Norb’s lovely daughters gave a heartfelt commentary on her father.
