Vice President Gore Runs in Nike Capital Challenge Race

In this photograph, Vice President Al Gore participates in the 1993 Nike Capital Challenge Race in Washington, D.C. The annual 3-mile race is held in Washington, D.C. to benefit charitable organizations such as the Special Olympics D.C. and Junior Achievement USA. Participant teams typically include members of Congress, federal judges, government officials, and media personalities. In 2004, the American Council of Life Insurers (ACLI) became the official sponsor of the event. An avid jogger, Gore took part in the race ten times between 1985 and 1998.
