Athletes come from all over to pay respects to the cocky runner who at the time of his death held every American record from 2,000 to 10,000 meters. They leave medals, flowers, shirts, energy bars, and handwritten notes, and sometimes just quietly reflect at the stone that memorializes Steve Prefontaine, who was only 24 when he died. Moments spent at the slab have been referred to as the Church of Pre; it’s a compulsory pilgrimage for runners all over the world.
