      Yes it's a Worlds Qualifying Time

    I suspect in 4 months time in rather tougher conditions we may see some of yesterdays runners not replicating at the WC

      Full results of the Sound Running TEN at https://finishedresults.trackscorebo...s/10604/events

      Loads of Eugene standards achieved - 27:28 & 31:25 respectively.

      Bonkers times for Fisher & Ahmed! Also, 30:14.66 for Elise Cranny, just 1.5s outside Molly Huddle's NR set in Rio 2016.

      We have to continue to recalibrate our thinking about distance times. From what I've seen the super shoes are worth 3 to 4 seconds per mile (though athletes respond differently to them). So, in old money Fisher & Ahmed's runs are likely worth just inside 27 mins.

          Nice 10+ second PB for Calli Thackery, 2nd in the 5000 at the Box Hill Burn in Australia with 15:26.87. That's under the 15:30 England standard for the Comm Games.

            The British Marathon team for Eugene has been selected - Jess Piasecki, Charlotte Purdue, Rose Harvey, Chris Thompson & Josh Griffiths

            https://www.uka.org.uk/news/news-and...s-oregon-2022/

            I get the allure of a World Championships but I'm still very surprised that Piasecki & Purdue aren't instead targeting medals in the marathon at the European Championships. Piasecki would probably start the favourite for that (if Lonah Salpeter is running Worlds instead). Additionally, it's expected to be hot in Eugene which Jess Piasecki didn't handle well in Sapporo.

            The trials for the Comm Games & Euro Champs marathon are on 3rd April at the Manchester Marathon.

              I'm not surprised that Purdue or Piasecki aren't targeting the Europeans, but I am surprised that one if not both aren't targeting the Commonwealth Games. A good chance of a medal at a home games would do wonders for their profile. Sure, they could be competitive at the Worlds, but they stood a chance of real prime time coverage at Birmingham. But wish them both luck, they're clearly in brilliant form again after some tough years.

                I'd thought they might both try to make the England team at 10,000 for the Comm Games and then have a few weeks' rest before the Euro Champs marathon. As it is though, they won't be at the Comm Games and are unlikely to recover enough for the Euro Champs marathon. That leaves the Euro Champs 10,000 as an option instead but with McColgan & Judd there's likely to be only one spot going there.

                I maintain that the Euro Champs marathon would be their best chance of a medal and their best chance of a Gold. At the Comm Games you never know which three B or C team athletes the Kenyans will send who might all be capable of busting out a 2:20 - 2:21 type effort. Not to mention a Ugandan (e.g., Juliet Chekwel) or Canadian who might have a breakthrough .

                    For Belgrade or for Eugene?

                    For Belgrade I think it's today.

                      Belgrade. Usually a full week before the event.
                      I note Hocker is not accepting his place in the USA team.
                      A few teams so far declared, Jamaica,France, GB,Spain,OZ. Italy.Nothing from East Africa have I heard.

                        I think it's well accepted that this years WIC has been adversely affected by a frenetic summer season.

                          Indoors fields are always depleted compared to outdoors.

                          Ruth Chepngetich negative-splitted to win the Nagoya Women's Marathon in 2:17:18 CR (69:03 / 68:15) and thus claimed the biggest ever prize in marathon running, 250,000 USD. She said she wanted to run a PB and was just 14s outside it in the end.

                          Rest of Top 7:

                          2 Lonah Salpeter 2:18:45
                          3 Yuka Ando 2:22:22
                          4 Ai Hosoda 2:24:26 (2 minute PB)
                          5 Yuka Suzuki 2:25:02 (Great marathon debut for the 22yo; Collegiate record taking 1:44 off the previous mark - she graduates next month)
                          6 Eloise Wellings (AUS) 2:25:10 (4 minute PB)
                          7 Ikumi Fukura 2:25:15 (3 minute PB)

                          I think Yuka Ando's run makes her a cert to get on the Japanese team for Eugene along with Mao Ichiyama & Mizuki Matsuda (both already on the team). This is absolutely the best team Japan can send - they've been Japan's fastest 3 marathon runners of the last 4 years (all 3 have PBs in the 2:20 - 2:21 range) and all three are very consistent too.
