This week on The Rundown Maddy Kelly and Kate Van Buskirk bring you all the results and drama from the roads, trails and cross-country courses.
[2:13] Blazing times were run at the Frankfurt Marathon, including a Guinness World Record for fastest marathon by a father and son. (SPOILER: a 59-year-old ran sub-2:30!). The Valencia Half-Marathon and Marine Corps Marathon also yielded exciting and speedy finishes, including redemption for Micheal Wardian in the inaugural Marine Corps 50K.
[10:20] Maddy breaks down the U Sport Cross-Country Conference results. With multiple surprise upsets, predicting next week’s national champions is nearly impossible. (Send us your dark horse picks for U Sport XC!)
[13:56] At the 24-Hour World Championships Camille Herron demolished her own world record; Canadians Mallory Richard and Ryan Shephard earned their spot on the podium against some of the speediest ultrarunners in North America at the Javelina Jundred; and Killian Jornet set a new course record at the Annapurna Trail Marathon in Nepal.
