Apply now and be part of history! - Imagine yourself running through 29 Chicago neighborhoods with more than 40,000 runners. Imagine 1.7 million spectators cheering you on every step of the way. Imagine crossing the finish line of the 40th running of the Bank of America Chicago Marathon and etching your name in the record books.

From USATF (Nov. 11, 2016) -- In a sea of over 51,000 runners at last Sunday’s TCS New York City Marathon, 2016 Olympian Molly Huddle (Providence, Rhode Island) pushed through to finish her debut marathon in third-place, running the sixth-fastest American woman’s NYC Marathon debut in history. 

The 2016 Mainova Frankfurt Marathon was a huge success. Over 15,800 runners started the race, on a fine, cool, clear day at the end of October in Frankfurt, Germany. Mark Korir battled over the entire 42 kilometers, taking the last 4 kilometers to win the race. Mamitu Daska took the women's win, even with a irritated stomach, barely holding off Fate Tola.

The women's marathon in Frankfurt was quite compelling. The debut of a German citizen in Fate Tola, and the racing tandem of Mona Stockhecke, Martina Strehl, Charlotte Purdue and Lindsay Flanagan found all with PBs afterwards.

Running for women in Germany is like running for women in the U.S. in the 1980s. It is just beginning to blossom. It is ironic as the running marathon fever created by Christina Vahlenshek, Utta Pippig, among others shows that German women can race quite well in the global marathon scene.

San Jose, CA - October 2, 2016 - After Sunday's incredible finish at the 11th annual Rock 'n' Roll San Jose Half Marathon, there was no doubt whatsoever that success there runs in the family. Shadrack Biwott, brother of former champion and current course-record holder Duncan Kibet, won the 13.1-mile race. The 31-year-old blazed the scenic and super-fast course in downtown San Jose in one hour, one minute, and 55 seconds.

Kenenisa Bekele established himself as the second fastest marathon runner ever, winning the BMW BERLIN-MARATHON with a time of 2:03:03 on Sunday. In a thrilling duel the Ethiopian superstar beat Kenya’s Wilson Kipsang.
