Distance Recap: Edward Kemboi Rides The Rail To Victory In 800, Chad Noelle Kicks Best In 1,500 And Anthony Rotich Three-Peats In Steeple

Both the 800 (1:49.26) and 1,500 (3:54.96) had incredibly slow winning times due to wind on the backstretch, but that made for thrilling theater as everyone was still in contention with 200 to go in each race. As it did last year, the steeple came down to Rotich vs. Stanley Kebenei and Rotich once again prevailed by a narrow .38 margin.

Men's 800, 1500 and Steeple Prelim Recaps: The 800 Final is Loaded, The 1500 Final is Wide Open and There Are Two Big Boys In The Steeple

We recap the action and have a quote from Cristian Soratos that would make Steve Prefontaine proud.

2015 NCAA Outdoor Men's Mid-D/Steeple Preview: Cristian Soratos and Jordan Williamsz Lead A Wide-Open 1500; Anthony Rotich & Stanley Kebenei to Duel in Steeple; Will NCAA Champs Brandon McBride or Edward Kemboi Emerge In A Loaded Men's 800?

We're not sure if there will be drama in the 5 an 10ks but these races should more than make it up for it. The 800, where NCAA champs Brandon McBride and Edward Kemboi lead the way, is the deepest 800 in years at the NCAA level. Cristian Soratos vs. Jordan Williamsz is must-watch drama in the 1500 as is the Stanely Kebenei vs. Anthony Rotich battle in the steeple.
