The 2016 U.S. Olympic Trials Marathon is one of the most highly anticipated Marathon Trials marathons in recent memory. With an intense battle for 26.2 miles on both the men's and women's sides, each race will have its own drama. NBC will be televising the race live from 10 am PST to 1 PM PST on Saturday, February 13, 2016. If you are in Los Angeles, come down and watch the race as both races have their own battles and own drama.
Meb Keflezighi, Dathan Ritzenhein and Galen Rupp, with nearly 208 other men fighting for the the top three, leave the starting line at 10:06 am PST. At 10:22 AM, PST, the women, lead by Shalane Flanagan, Desiree Linden, Amy Cragg, Kara Goucher and nearly 242 other women battle for the top three women's positions.
211 total men and 246 total women have qualified for both the men and women's races on Saturday, February 13, 2016. If you can not be in LA, watch it on NBC-TV and download the official U.S. Olympic Trials Marathon electronic program right here. It is full of fun information on Olympic Trials past and present.
The design, printing and production of the U.S. Olympic Trials marathon program was donated by the partners of the Running Network and Fortius Media, as we did in 2012, and as we donated media programs for USATF all the way back to 1992 with USA Cross Country programs.
We hope it adds to your enjoyment of the event. And remember to watch for updates on the Trials on your favorite runningnetwork.com site as well as live coverage, all week, from RunBlogRun.com.
