Chepngetich, Tura Win Warm and Windy Chicago Marathon
Oct 10, 2021On a too-warm and windy morning in Chicago, Kenya's Ruth Chepngetich and Ethiopia's Seifu Tura ran to victory at the Bank of America Chicago Marathon, the first in-person edition of an Abbott World Marathon Majors event to be held in the United States in nearly two years. Their winning times of 2:22:31 and 2:06:12 were solid, but not dazzling. Mid-race temperatures of 75F/24C accompanied by sometimes strong winds made fast running difficult. Both winners earned USD 55,000 in prize money.

U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials Men's Preview: Can Rupp Overcome To Win Again?
Feb 26, 2020The men’s race at the 2020 U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials is top-heavy on paper. Defending champion Galen Rupp exists in a league of his own with an Olympic bronze medal from Rio and a 2:06 personal best buoying his position. Injury struggles and Alberto Salazar’s ban have made a potential victory in Atlanta much less certain, but Rupp seems to have steadied the ship after tuning up with a 61-minute half earlier this month. If he makes it through 26.2 miles on Saturday, there’s a strong chance he will break the tape.
