Prefontaine Classic Diaries: Mo Farah Wins 10,000m in last 75 meters! 26:53.71

by Larry Eder

The 10,000 meters, is, I believe, the cruelest race on the track. Twenty-five laps of running close to one's limit, and then, a final, bone crushing kick to the finish, where one can win, or loose by mere hundredths of a second. Mo Farah has run three 10,000 meter races at the Pre classic. Seventy-five laps around Hayward Field, and he has won all three events. He has intimate knowledge of this track surface and intense confidence in his ability to run any tactic and race anyone in the world.
 
The race began, as it ended: fast and furious. A first lap of 63.4, lead by German Fernandez of the US, had Fernandez leading through 1600 meters in 4:18.2. The first kilometer was passed in 2:43, and the second, in 2:42, with the kilometer time at two clicks coming in at 5:25.

Giving Back at Big Bear Track Club

By Mark Winitz
 
U.S. track and field middle distance standout Brenda Martinez was always club oriented. Despite her parents' instructions not to, even before she entered elementary school, the precocious youngster would run down the streets of Rancho Cucamonga in Southern California to visit her friends. So, when Martinez was five years old her parents put her in a youth track club, the West Coast Gazelles, to keep her off the roads, on track, and safely occupied after school. The Gazelles ran their workouts on the oval at Rancho Cucamonga High School, which Martinez subsequently attended. And, to this day the 2013 IAAF World Championships bronze medalist at 800 meters maintains her passion for running with a club.

by Lindsay Rossmiller
