  • New York Running Trivia

    No one responded to this on the main board, so I'll try here...

    Kara Goucher is running the NYC marathon this fall and won the mile at the Millrose Games this past February. Forget about winning both, has anyone ever run both in the same calendar year? Either male or female? Even if we consider Yonkers as the "New York" marathon prior to 1970?

    Maybe Jan Merrill, Julie Brown, or Lynn Jennings?

      Or Rod Dixon?

        The NYRRC website has archived results from 1970, so checking against that race is easy. Finding past Millrose results is not. None of the suggested athletes appear to check out, although I can't be sure on Julie Brown.

        AlSal broke the 5k AR at Millrose '81 in a runner-up finish and then went on to win NYC that fall, but that's not really the question here.
