California Fire Affects Numerous Races

Written by

The #RunForVentura fundraiser is a virtual run that’s both competitive and philanthropic - One of the largest wildfires in California history has been burning in Southern California for 12 days. The Thomas Fire, which started in Ventura on December 4, has become the fourth largest fire in the states history and torched more than 260,000 acres. Two fatalities, one firefighter and one evacuee casualty, are attributed to the blaze.

MOLLY HUDDLE RETURNS TO THE BIG APPLE

Written by

By Carolyn Mather

 

American record holder and Olympian Molly Huddle is in New York City this week to honor Gabe Grunewald as she received the Special Inspiration Award at the 3rd Annual Activ against cancer luncheon, to support her sponsor Saucony and to race the USATF Championship Dash to the Finish 5K on Saturday before the main event, the TCS New York City in Marathon on Sunday which she ran in her debut marathon in 2016 with a third place podium finish in 2:28:13. Molly had decided to forgo a fall marathon thinking she would not have time to get ready after concentrating on her summer track season. She realized a bit too late that she probably could have raced a fall marathon but she will now put all of her focus on a spring marathon(to be announced in December).

 

Molly decided at the last minute to race the 5K and get back to racing following a break from her outdoor track season. After this she plans to race the Manchester Road Race (4.738 miles) on Thanksgiving Day then move to the Houston Half Marathon in January as she gets into serious marathon training. Having lost her marathon training partners of Olympians Amy Cragg and Kim Smith, she has been training with Emily Sisson and several other up and coming "youngsters" who she figures she is "mom" to them. At age 33 Molly is hardly that old and well suited to have continued success on the roads and to providing insightful guidance to "her children".

NEW YORK (04-Nov) -- The men's and women's USATF 5-K road championships could not have played out more differently here this morning in Central Park. While Shadrack Kipchirchir only snatched the men's win in the final strides, Molly Huddle took control early and had a solo run to her 25th national title, breaking her own course record. The race was held in conjunction with the Abbott Dash to the Finish Line 5-K, which finishes over the same final stretch of roadway that will host the TCS New York City Marathon on Sunday.
 
The men's race set off first from the United Nations on a cool morning (49F/9C), with the entire field in a giant pack for most of the first three kilometers, through midtown and into the park. Virginia Tech grad Tommy Curtin moved to the front with less than a mile to go and started accelerating, with Hassan Mead and Ben True close behind. Olympic silver medalist Paul Chelimo began to sneak up on the inside as the road curved north towards the uphill finish, which triggered another surge from Curtin with 200 meters to go as the still sizable field ascended the final climb to the tape.
 
In a mad sprint to the line, Curtin and Kirubel Erassa nearly tangled while Kipchirchir timed his kick best, coming through to grab the win in 13:57. Curtin, Erassa and Chelimo were all one second behind and the first 11 finishers were separated by less than seven seconds. It was the second USATF title of the fall for the 28-year-old Oklahoma State grad, who took the 10-mile championship as part of the Medtronic TC event in Minneapolis on October 1.

NEW YORK – Olympians Molly Huddle and Shadrack Kipchirchir ran very different races Saturday morning at the USATF 5 km Championships in New York City, but the end result was the same, as both took home titles at the race hosted by the Abbott Dash to the Finish Line 5K.

Although the events are several days away, pulling away community resources and emergency personnel was a huge concern - SONOMA, CA, (October 20, 2017) – Today, Destination Races and Motiv Sports announced the Healdsburg Wine Country Half Marathon and Hallowine 10K were officially cancelled after carefully reviewing all different scenarios and consulting with county officials, CHP, medical teams, community partners, and participants.
