Says hip injury has been aggravated by training, will not start on Sunday, Nov. 3 - NEW YORK CITY - The 2013 ING New York City Marathon men’s professional field will lose previously announced U.S. Olympian Ryan Hall due to a hip injury, it was announced by New York Road Runners officials.
Ryan Hall went to Stanford for college and ran well in cross country and on the track. After college, Ryan ran a 13:16 for the 5,000 meters, but it was in 2006, when he broke the American record for 20k, held by Mark Curp for over two decades, that Ryan came into prominence.
His run on the Boston Marathon course, where he ran the fastest marathon ever run, in all conditions by an American, of 2:04.55, to take fourth, in 2011, has kep him in the spotlight.
We ask Ryan Hall, the ASICS ambassador, what he would tell high school runners about the FootLocker Cross Country series, the place where America's best distance runners have raced for three plus decades!

Christoph Kopp lives in Berlinbut since the end of last week the Elite Race Coordinator for the BMW Frankfurt Marathonhas been regularly checking the weather forecast for the city beside the River Main. That’s where an imposing field will line up for the race’s 32nd edition on Sunday. A year ago the thermometer dropped to freezing point on race day morning and the organisers took the precaution of having salt scattered around the bends to prevent runners slipping on any potentially icy surface. Judging by the current meteorological predictions, Christoph Kopp and Race Director Jo Schindler will not need salt on Sunday – that is for sure. The elite field is loaded with talent, showing 21 runners with personal bests of sub 2:10and five have broken 2:05:30. The BMW Frankfurt Marathonis an IAAF Gold Label Road Race and around 15,000 runners are expected to take part.
