Elite field announced - VLM 2013

Postby boyband6666 » Wed Jan 30, 2013 4:39 pm

... and is a corker...

All three male Olympic medalists, about a dozen men who've already gone <2.06. With the right conditions the world record could go, especially since the record holder is one of the dozen.



The female race is also very interesting, with the top 2 at the Olympics there, but the debut over the marathon of Tirunesh Dibaba. 10k runners do make speedy marathon runners, and the amount of Olympic gold she has shows how good she is!

On Friday it will be VLM the following month ..!



Hope everyones training is going well. Some long long runs still to put in but at least there are signs of the weather improving slightly as I write the Sun is shining! :bounce:



Rachel, I don't think you or any of us fellow LERCer's will be seeing the Elite runners on the day unless you're spectating!?
Howay the lads (and lasses)
