Men's champion produces fastest marathon ever; Davila women's runner-up and Hall fastest American all-time under near perfect racing conditions on historic point-to-point, downhill course

By Jim Gerweck, Running USA wire

BOSTON - The 115th running of the Boston Marathon on Monday turned out to be one of the record books - it just depends on which ones you want to rewrite.

Kenya's Geoffrey Mutai, 29, ran the fastest marathon in history - 2 hours, 3 minutes, 2 seconds - a time 57-seconds faster than the world record set by Haile Gebrselassie at Berlin in 2008 and an almost incomprehensible three minutes better than Robert Kiprono Cheryuoit's course record of 2:05:52, which was deemed virtually untouchable when he set it last year.

The Houston Marathon Committee and USA Track & Field are making improvements to the proposed course for the 2012 U.S. Olympic Team Trials Marathon to be held Jan. 14, 2012 in Houston.

"We received feedback and comments from numerous athletes who competed in the recent USA Half Marathon Championships and we have modified the route to minimize the out-and-backs," said Brant Kotch, president and race director of the Houston Marathon Committee. "The improved route is as runner- and spectator-friendly as possible, and we believe the Olympic Trials participants will be very happy with it.

Hollman,_Lena.jpg__.jpgOnce upon a time I was a marathon runner. It was back in the 1980s, when I was in my 30s and could shoot for a PR in several of the marathons that I entered. I would run up to 70 miles per week, and my running was my life. But as I grew older, it became increasingly difficult to keep up with my marathon training, both in terms of quantity and quality. I decided to give up marathons in my early 40s, after running them twice a year or more for several years. Instead I concentrated on shorter races, primarily 5Ks. And I could actually have a life outside of work and running!

New, third wave for more orderly start and implementation will not increase field size of 2011 race; also timing and scoring device affixed to each official entrant's bib debuts

HOPKINTON, Mass. - The Boston Athletic Association (B.A.A.) will employ a third wave for the start of the 2011 Boston Marathon, creating a more efficient and improved running experience for participants in the 115th edition of the world's oldest, most prestigious and historic annual marathon. This year's race will be held on Monday, April 18: Patriots' Day in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

Working in cooperation with the Town of Hopkinton and the Hopkinton Marathon Committee, the B.A.A. will institute three waves of mass participatory starters. Each wave will include approximately 9,000 official entrants, and each wave will be identified by its background bib color in a coordinated, patriotic color scheme: Wave One (red bibs), Wave Two (white bibs) and Wave Three (blue bibs).

NCRC_Resolution.jpgIce was still hanging around after a freak Christmas snow, but on the first day of 2011, the weather was balmy.
A couple hundred runners, walkers and New Years Eve resolution-makers abandoned their noisemakers, shook off holiday hangovers and cobwebs, and set out on their first run of 2011.
