Gate River Run 15k

This weekend is the USA 15k road championship at the Gate River Run in Florida. As a big running geek I love to follow this stuff. One thing that is real fun as well is watching to see how my friends on Team USA MN are doing at these races. This year there is a big group from the team going to run. The fields are super stacked !!!

Some of the big names running on the mens side are Fasil Bizuneh, Daniel Browne, Fernando Cabada, Andrew Carlson, James Carney, Ian Dobson, Anthony Famiglietti, Matthew Gabrielson, Jason Lehmkuhle, Chris Lundstrom, Joshua Moen, Dathan Ritzenhein, Jorge Torres. On the womens side they are Emily Brown, Colleen De Reuck, Elva Dryer, Katie McGregor, Kate O'Neill. Now if I had to my best guess on what the top 5 will look like this is what I would guess....

4)Matty G
5)Andrew Carlson

1)Katie M
2)Emily B
5)someone from the pack

You can find more info for this race at USATF site

hey kurt - sounds like another awesome race to follow. i am hoping to follow highlights from the dutch half with ryan and geb and also the ncaa indoors with german.

i guess i was mistaken about german running this weekend - i found this on the osu website:

"Oklahoma State freshman German Fernandez hit automatic qualifying marks in the mile, running a junior world record time of 3:55.02, and the 3,000-meter run, running an NCAA record time of 7:47.97, but will not be in action at the meet as he continues training for the World Cross Country Championships in Amman, Jordan."

Good luck to you and Steve this weekend as well.. Yea German is running world xc which I think is great. Why not test yourself with the best from everywhere in the world.
