Girma Gebre Earns First WWBH Victory in Race Postponed Five Weeks Ago

NATIONAL HARBOR, MD – Runners at the fourth annual Woodrow Wilson Bridge Half Marathon had to wait five weeks for today’s event, but it was worth the wait as they were treated to perfect weather conditions.

Originally slated for October 6, the 13.1-mile USATF-sanctioned footrace fell victim to last month’s U.S. government shutdown. The course’s first eight miles run through the scenic George Washington Memorial Parkway, a national park, which was affected when employees of the National Park Service and U.S. Park Police were temporarily furloughed.

Larry Miller of Weeki Wachee, Florida is like a lot of runners today who were active when this publication started in 1984. No longer a competitive runner.

It’s not fair that we slow down with age. As Larry put it, “After nearly 30 years of running, the wear on the body and age have caught up with me.” However, he continues to “exercise for health.” I trust that includes some jogging.

Arlington, VA - Since 1996, the RRCA has awarded grants totaling over $450,000 through the Roads Scholar® program. The goal of the program is to assist American post collegiate runners who show great promise to develop into national and world-class road running athletes. The grants awarded by the RRCA go directly to the athletes to help support their goals of becoming world-class distance runners. While traditionally the RRCA has distributed six grants, the strong credentials and impressive potential of this year’s pool of applicants, coupled with the ability to lay the groundwork for qualification in the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics afforded the expansion of the 2013-14 class to eight recipients.
