After Munich when Steve was feeling sorry for himself, he said that he'd have a street named after and it would be called 4th Street. In reality, that was actually said by his Oregon teammate Arne Kvalheim and it was meant to be a joke. See more »

Steve Prefontaine was America's best long distance runner ever. This movie shows how you can achieve your dreams and that anything is possible. Prefontaine is filled with great action, that is if you actually enjoy watching someone run on the TV. After watching this movie you will feel like going outside and running a five kilometer. This is one of the best movies ever made in my opinion.
