US Olympic Marathon Team trials-NYC (Read 899 times)


Imminent Catastrophe

    The US Olympic Team Marathon trials will be held in Manhattan on November 3, the day before the NYC Marathon. The USA's best will run through Times Square then up 7th Avenue and 5 laps of Central Park. The US team should be very competitive this year (and in Beijing). Should be quite a show!

        Joe, who is your friend? I'm volunteering for the race and should have a front row seat as they come by, I can look for him and yell out that Joe says HI!

          my friend is brian but his friend is Dan Browne RW says he's a dark horse but I'll be rooting for him. it's a neat course. 5 or 6 times around central park should be neat to watch in person.

                I believe Dan will be #3 (he came in third at the last olympic trials) http://www.runnersworld.com/article/0,7120,s6-239-399--12227-0,00.html

                  Are the trials on TV this weekend?

                  Just because running is simple does not mean it is easy.
