USA Half-Marathon Championships Live Webcast
"KTRK's steadycam vehicle will follow the half virtually to the finish (where the FL cameras will take over) before heading back out to pick up the full marathon at about mile 17."
Race starts at 7 a.m. CST (8 EST, 6 MST, 5 PST)

Shalane Flanagan, AR-holder for 3000m, 5000m, and 10,000m, will be making her debut at the distance at the same venue where Ryan Hall had his break-out AR debut performance. From a local perspective, Renee Metivier Baillie, former NCAA CC runner-up and multiple all-American training under Jay Johnson, is making what I believe is her debut at the distance. Brent Vaughn is also making his debut in the half-marathon and I am intrigued to see how he does. Looks like a really solid men's field, including Rohatinsky, Carney, Arciniaga, Nelson, Young, Hartmann, and Ryan Shay's younger brother Stephan, and should make for some really good races.

  1. I don't have a link, but have heard that both Hartmann and Carney are scratching.
