I, for one, was very surprised to see Dani Jones pull that upset today, but I’d heard about her finishing speed, so when I saw her there with a quarter mile to go, I thought she had a shot. I did think that Kelati would’ve made a much more definitive move to drop the pack than she did.
Is a 1500/3000 runner winning NCAA XCs proof that the women should be running 10K and not 6K? I personally find it ridiculous they run so much less than the men. Who do you all think would’ve won had it been 10K?
Personally, I think it's kind of sad that it is JUST 6k or JUST 10k. It would be great to see more races.
Why not make it more than one race distance? Like how they used to do world xc or whatever.
I'd rather see more races and more runners competing at a distance closer to their track speciality.
Men would be like 6k and 10k.
Women could keep the 6k and do either 8k/10k.
At the very least though the women's race should go up to 8k in the championships just like how the men's goes up from 8k to 10k.
