LOS ANGELES (12-Feb) -- On a day that will be remembered for the harsh wrath of mother nature and its crippling heat, Galen Rupp and Amy Hastings ran their way to the Rio de Janeiro Olympics here at the 2016 U.S. Olympic Trials Marathon. Rupp booked his ticket in dominating fashion, cruising to win his debut marathon in 2:11:12, while Cragg completed a pulse-pounding, drama-filled race in 2:28:20.

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.
