Yesterday’s Results

At the Hakone Ekiden, Japan’s collegiate men’s road racing championships, Toyo University broke the course record by eight minutes in a historic win.

Toyo redefined what was possible … the first school ever to average under 3:00/km for the entire course, its ten men averaging 2:59.4 per km, an average of 1:03:05 for a half marathon for all ten men on the team. Only ten American men, all pros, ran that fast for a half marathon in all of 2011.

 

Brett Larner has the story.

News Headlines

Runner’s World’s Racing News has all the headlines.

Tributes for the late British coach Frank Horwill, from announcer Tim Hutchings and an irreverant one from Pat Butcher.

Hitler secretly filmed Irish throwers in the 30s. The film’s whereabouts are unknown and being sought.

Domestic pro meets are shaping up nicely. David Oliver, Jason Richardson and Dwight Thomas are hurdling at New York’s US Open, and Mo Farah, Jenn Suhr and Morgan Uceny will compete the following week at Boston’s New Balance meet.
