Use a tubular slide hammer. Hold the fork in one hand and the slide hammer in the other and bring them together a few times. There's enough inertia in the fork to do the job. If the race is too tight, you can clamp the slide hammer in a vise and bang the fork up and down.
At no time do you want to hammer on the crown with the fork tips supported.
