• Meb Keflezighi Breaks U.S. Masters Half Marathon Record at 10th Annual Rock ’n’ Roll San Jose

    SAN JOSE – Sept. 27, 2015 – Celebrating its 10th anniversary, the Rock ‘n’ Roll San Jose Half Marathon welcomed more than 14,000 runners over race weekend. In addition to a field of world-class elite athletes and nearly 100 runners vying for an Olympic Trials qualifying time, 49ers legend Roger Craig (joined San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo in running the half marathon today.

    Running side by side through the Rose Garden neighborhood of San Jose just before Mile 10 on Sunday morning, Meb Keflezighi took a glance at Jordan Chipangama to his right before putting his head down and charging up a small incline.

  • Eliud Kipchoge considers mental sharpness is the crucial factor as the Berlin champion turns his attention to Olympic Marathon in Rio

    Given his status as the current unofficial world number one in the men’s marathon, following Sunday’s win in the BMW BERLIN-MARATHON to complete a triumphant year at the distance which began with an equally commanding victory in London in April, Eliud Kipchoge’s approach to peak performance provides a lesson to any runner, whether elite or those among the 41,000 and more who followed him through the Brandenburg Gate to the finish line.

    Reflecting on his career so far a few hours after victory in Berlin, Kipchoge emphasized that he and his longterm coach Patrick Sang, the Olympic silver medallist in the steeplechase in 1992, regard maintaining mental freshness as even more important than physical conditioning. Kipchoge is, of course, in superb shape and has demonstrated his ability for more than a decade, winning the World 5,000m title against Kenenisa Bekele in Paris in 2003 and following that with a silver medal at the same distance four years later and an Olympic silver in Beijing in 2008. But their philosophy offers a wider framework than a mantra of “Train Hard, Win Easy.”

  • Deena Kastor Ties Women’s Masters 5K Record at Rock ‘n’ Roll San Jose

    SAN JOSE – September 26, 2015 – Deena Kastor is at an age where most pros hang up their racing flats, but nothing appears to be stopping this American distance-running. Today she tied the women’s US and World Masters record in the 5K in 15:48, winning the women’s Rock ‘n’ Roll 5K and placing third overall. The women’s 5K Masters Record was previously set by Colleen De Reuck in Albany, NY in 2004. 

    “I felt really good about the race,” said Kastor, who won the 2011 Rock ‘n’ Roll San Jose Half Marathon in 1:12:23, which was her first win since giving birth to her daughter Piper. “It’s a celebration out here today whether we reach our goals or not. I came out here and gave it my best. There was not one point on the course I could have pushed harder to get a faster time. I’m really happy with my effort. I feel like Rock ‘n’ Roll San Jose is an underestimated destination for fast times.”

  • Eliud Kipchoge leads Kenyan trio in pursuit of superfast race, while German runners target Olympic qualifying times for Rio

    The 42nd edition of the BMW BERLIN-MARATHON promises to be a hunt for superfast times and Olympic qualifying performances when the starting gun is fired at 9 o’clock on Sunday morning to set 41,224 runners from 131 countries in motion along the Avenue of June 17. The Kenyan trio of Eliud Kipchoge, Emmanuel Mutai and Geoffrey Mutai have the kind of split times in their sights which could bring them in range of the world record of 2:02:57 set by their compatriot Dennis Kimetto last year. All have solid experience of the Berlin course which adds credibility to their confidence at Friday’s press conference.

    The BMW-BERLIN MARATHON is the first autumn race in the Abbott World Marathon Majors (AWMM) series which also comprises Tokyo, Boston, London, Chicago and New York. The race has Gold Label status, the highest category awarded by the IAAF.
