Boston Marathon 2017

Recommended Posts

Unable to run his race as it's just so difficult to obtain BQ. However, I did follow the race yesterday and was glad that the Americans are getting faster and faster. Although Kenyans dominate the top position in both Men and Women category, it can be noted that for Men's category, USA took home 6 of the top 10 positions with notable timings. Of course Galen Rupp took the 2nd place and it's a close fight to 1st place Kirui. There is also an Asian who got 3rd, and it's his debut marathon. 

In Women's category, Hasay ran the fastest debutan marathon any Women American has done before. Definitely one of the up and coming distance runners for USA!

Do also note that although this being the qualification timing, there might still be a chance that you are not qualified for Boston if you just meet the qualifying time by say 5s.. For 2016, I recalled that you need to qualify 2mins faster than your age qualifying time inorder to get the Boston slot... this is how competitive it is....
