  • World Half Marathon Champs [medal for Ritz]

    Paula Radcliffe and Zersenay Tadese are the two big names who have been confirmed. Paula will be looking for title No.4 and Tadese for title No.3 (or No.4 if you include the 20km win from 2006).

    Kenyan team here:
    http://www.iaaf.org/WHM09/news/kind=100 ... 54489.html

    All the Kenyan guys have PBs under the 1hr mark. Kimutai 59:44, Kitwara 58:58 (defeated Geb in Den Haag and first at Kenyan 10000m), Kiprotich 58:59, Kipyego 59:10 (59:34 debut) and Wilson Chebet 59:15.

    Women's team isn't as strong but looking at their respective biogs, one result which seems to have completely missed my radar was Ongori's 30:29.21 10000m PB set last November (albeit in a mixed race).

    Any ideas of the Ethiopian and US teams?

    First the 5th Avenue Mile, and now this; I don't know if my heart can take that much excitement two weekends in a row! :twisted:

        Dathan Ritzenhein and Amy Yoder-Begley are both in great shape. While this race is always very deep, both have are primed to run well, with possible podium finishes if everything goes really well.

          Obviously the loss of Radcliffe changes the complexion of the women's race.

                    That's not the start list; it's the provisional entry list.

                    The ENTRY LIST as at 7 October is downloadable in pdf format from ‘Related Content’ to the right-hand-side of this message.

                    NB. The START LIST will only become available after the completion of the Technical Meeting which begins at 16:00hrs local time (GMT +1hr) on Saturday 10 October.

                      That's technically correct, but a bit picky :P These lists even include start numbers, so they can be thought of as start lists.

                      I see my all-time favorite T&F name - Gaylord Silly - is there as well

                        In this article, Salazar states that Ritzenhein ran 10 miles in 45:03 in practice...
                        Considering this is roughly equivalent to a low 27 10K, I guess Salazar would answer Al Michaels' famous inquiry in the affirmative...

                        Salazar also discusses Webb: "I really think the guy is going to do unbelievable."

                          Also from the article:
                          Does Salazar think Webb is a miler or a 5K runner?

                          "I don't know," the coach said. "I think for right now we're going to stick with the 1,500 and mile. I don't want to turn tail and give up (on the mile). Let's get him better than he's ever been at the mile and then say, 'What do we think?'"
