You’re Going to Hollywood!

No, no, no. Not American Idol – the Olympic Trials Marathon! The marathon will be held on February 13th in Los Angeles and some folks are still trying to qualify. A large group of them gathered in Jacksonville, Florida last weekend and worked together to make it happen. It was an unusual gathering, as most races don’t draw nearly as many elite runners. Here are the runners from Sunday that qualified for the Olympic Trials Marathon:

Notes

  • Kevin Castille is 43 years old and he ran 1:04:33.
  • The last runner to qualify was Tim Chichester, a semi-local guy who attended SUNY Geneseo
  • 1:09:59 is a fast half marathon – in Jacksonville, that time earned you 60th place
  • The Houston Half is on Janury 17th – it’ll be the last chance for runners who still need to qualify
  • El Niño could make for a really interesting Olympic Trials Marathon

      I was just discussing El Niño with a coworker and wondering how it may effect trials. This was such an awesome race to read about.
