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....

Yeah, according to the faq link, need to be 2:09 min faster than the qualifying times to get a chance.

    • Update: Uncle explores route...       For your interest, Forest Force 50 15KM route on 29th March 2020 (Sun)     Met their production crew at Dairy Farm Nature Park side...while uncle exit to Singapore Quarry... Please follow only Hiking (Runner) Trail like this one at Chestnut Nature Park. Yes, if uncle kena caught running at Mountain Bike Trail, kena FINE will be $2,000. Got tip from one of the crew "runners" from the Forest Force 50 Organising Committee, go to the Summit from Hindede side to take the route to Daisy Farm Nature Park, and that is the "pipe line" route of Bukit Timah Nature Park. Sounded like the same Forest Force 50 crew also knew about the Trans Singapore routes. Same theme - a "continuous" route.  only 2 trail races here in Singapore... running during wee hours with trail lights...                
    • Update: Info and 15KM route video   Follow this video on Volvic Forect Force 15KM route Met their video production crew as well as "acting runners". Even engaged a conversation with one of the them and find out more information.  
    • please contribute your post on anything you have run to this sub-forum thank you for your contribution, enjoy your running experience 👌
    • ^ I was thinking the same thing. I was optimistically hoping for the outbreak to mellow down by summer (for the northern hemisphere) but then I realise even if that happens, the underlying tension might still be there. So I'm just going to sit out on all international marathons until WHO declares the end of pandemic. Support local events for now!     
    • 2:55! Wow!😅  I don't think I'll ever get to that level since I'm getting on in years... I did consider doing the Sydney Marathon (September) or the CIty to Surf for Active Marathon in Perth (August) instead of my Oct or Nov race, but I'm hesitating. (I don't know if I'll get flagged/scolded by the admins for saying this here) but in Australia I occasionally come across people who, uhm let me just describe as... "not nice". They may not be openly shaking their fists in your face telling you to get out of their country, but they sure will make you feel unwelcome- even if you're not doing anything wrong, are acting on your best manners, and speak fluent English (I grew up in America). You know what I mean? 😓 Now with this virus scare going on, I'm worried they may not treat Asians too well (or even worse) 😨 The world is a big place, and there are many other places to go to in the meantime...
