2020 Olympic Marathon Trials Preview Podcast

February 27, 2020

Our weekly LetsRun.com Track Talk podcast is here (subscribe here).

The Olympic Marathon Trials are Saturday and they are loaded. The women’s side has Jordan Hasay and Emily Sisson but is wide open with Des Linden, Sara Hall, Kellyn Taylor, Molly Huddle, Aliphine Tuliamuk, Stehanie Bruce, Emma Bates Ulmer, and Sally Kipyego.

The men’s side has a big four of Galen Rupp, Leonard Korir, Jared Ward and Scott Fauble but should they falter is deeper than the women’s field with guys like Abdi Abdirahman and Bernard Lagat.

We’ve also got a special race week podcast with all the NAZ Elite Pros that dropped yesterday here.

This podcast is sponsored by HOKA ONE ONE. Seventeen HOKA athletes are running the Marathon Trials and LetsRun.com is profiling them all. From the dreamers, to the contenders, to the mountain men and women, get inspired by their stories and get some training advice in our HOKA ONE ONE Takes on the Trials coverage here.
