Great News For Olympic Trials Marathon Aspirants
"I just wanted to pass a note along to let friends with fast running friends know about a bonus that the California International Marathon will be offering this year. The CIM will be giving $1000 to every American male who gets an Olympic trials qualifier and either $1000 or $500 (a and b standard) for every female who gets a qualifying time at our race. For those of you who don't know, the CIM is one of the fastest courses in the country with a net downhill of 326 feet. Weather here in December is usually about 50 degrees. It has always been a great place to run fast or even debut and this year it will be a great place to do that while putting an extra grand in your pocket! We are hoping to create a really fast race this year with this incentive.
The California International Marathon takes place on Sunday, December 5, 2010. If you are interested in running or know someone who is, please send them our way. Travel money and hotel are available for some. My elite athlete coordinator, Priscilla Bayley, can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here's to a great year of training ahead and to Houston in 2012!"
