Run for Your Life
A tribute to the late Fred Lebow, the founder of the New York Marathon. Lebow fled his Orthodox home in war-torn Europe and found his calling when he brought together a ragtag group of runners for the first NYC Marathon in Central Park.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Made primarily for those who already know why Fred Lebow deserves his own documentary, this biography of the New York City Marathon founder isn't quite compelling enough to draw couch potatoes from their living rooms."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"A new documentary offers a salutary and touching reminder that the race, like nearly everything else great about New York City, was the creation of a stubborn visionary."
‑ A.O. Scott, New York Times
