        Just to clarify, the distance "carnival" is tonight (Friday) with most of the stars listed above in that.

        G. Rupp and Gabe J. will be running in Saturday's afternoon session in the McChesney mile -- should be interesting.

        Gabe is now running for Team Running USA.

          Arnold Ziffle is favored in the pig race.

            Why is nothing happening on all of the track and field boards. I cannot get LetsRun at all, nothing new is showing up here, I cannot get any information on the Oregon meet. Does anyone have information on the meets and links that actually give you something (the Oregon site has been absolutely useless to me)?

              Live results are up at:

              As of 9:41 PDT events through women's 5000m Sect A are posted.

                Results are up but slow and no talk on any of the boards including this one. I feel like I'm back in the stone ages trying to find results. And what's up with letsrun? Can't be an april fools joke this time.

                    Here is the Men's 5000, which seems to be the best race so far. It seems that Dathan is getting back in form, as is Tegenkamp who has been injured this winter/spring. Also, Solinsky might move up the college rankings with this showing. On the Downside, I think people were hoping for more from Max King and none of the other college runners had particularly good times.

                      Good return to action by 2-time XC champ Bairu. Cabada follows up his 13:34 from Mt. SAC with an excellent run. He ran a 10k at Duke just two weeks ago!

                        Ritzenhein's an early 8th fastest time in the World, while Solinsky posted the 11th fastest time in the World. Choge (KEN) leads with his 12:56.41 Commonwealth victory.

                        Also, Marla Runyan's 32:11.92 is the 6th fastest time in the world behind Abeylegesse's (TUR) 30:21.67 solo effort. Good return to form by Runyan.

                          From Wisconsin homepage:

                          Solinsky Runs Season's Fastest 5000

                          MADISON, Wis. - Junior Chris Solinsky ran the fastest 5,000 meter race by a collegian this year to lead the Wisconsin men’s track and field team at the Oregon Invitational in Friday’s late results.

                          The Stevens Point, Wis., native ran an NCAA regional qualifying time of 13 minutes, 27.94 seconds, improving his personal best by nearly 10 seconds. His time is the second fastest ever run by a UW athletes, just behind Matt Tegenkamp’s school-record mark of 13:26.36 set last summer. Nike’s Dathan Ritzenheim won the race in 13:25.81 while Tegenkamp, who is now competing for Nike, finished third in 13:33.53.

                            Don't remember ever seeing a 14:00.00 before.

                            8 Eric Logsdon Team XO 14:00.00

                            I do remember Derek Ibbotson being the first to run 4:00.0, and I remember seeing a 4:00.00, but I don't remember the runner.

                              I once had a complete list of all 4:00.0 milers, but I lost it. I do seem to recall that Arne Kvalheim was a member, speaking of things Oregonish.
