American women look to rewrite history at Chicago Marathon
Jordan Hasay, Amy Cragg, Stephanie Bruce, Lindsay Flanagan and Emma Bates have an opportunity at rewriting Chicago Marathon history this autumn. On October 13, some of the strongest-ever American contingents will line up in Chicago for a race that hopes to see Deena Kastor’s American file fall.
Hasay introduced in May that she could be returning to Chicago to goal the American file and the day prior to this the rest of the American elites had been introduced for the arena main. This box contains the 5 women discussed above who all personal sub 2:30 non-public bests.
Cragg, who used to be the 2016 U.S. Marathon Olympic Trial champion, is an engaging addition to the sphere. She’s run the fifth-fastest time in American history and ended a 34-year medal drought by means of taking house a World Championship bronze in 2017. She’s slightly raced since operating her non-public highest at the 2018 Tokyo Marathon, however we’re excited to see what she will be able to do come the autumn.
There haven’t been 3 American women within the most sensible 5 at the Chicago Marathon since 1994, and this actual box has a just right shot at converting that.
Galen Rupp leads the American males’s lineup for the development. The two-time Olympic medallist and four-time American file holder is coming again to the direction the place he ran his 2:06:21 debut in 2018.
Rupp is joined by means of Brogan Austin, Chris Derrick, Scott Smith, Diego Estrada, Dathan Ritzenhein, Noah Droddy
and Brendan Gregg on this 12 months’s American box. Outside of Rupp, Ritzenhein has the most productive shot of the Americans at a podium end. His non-public highest of two:07:47 is from the Chicago Marathon seven years in the past, a mark that can expectantly be reduced this October.
The Chicago Marathon runs on Sunday October 13.
