LetsRun.com’s 2014 Awards – We Need Your Vote

LRC Vote For LetsRun.com’s 2014 Awards With little action going on in early January, we thought it would be fun for you the fan to select the award winners for 2014. We need your help. Vote and tell us who are the male and female runners of the year for the World, US, and NCAA. Plus vote for the “best record-breaking performance,” the “race of the year,” the “moment of the year” and “unusual moment of the year.” It won’t be easy. For example, who is the US male runner of the year, Galen Rupp or Meb Keflezighi?
