LetsRun.com has a story on runner and former professional runner, Alex Gougere.
Gougere, who has also competed at the U.S. Olympic Trials, won the New York City Marathon in 2013 with a time of 2:17:37.
Now he’s ready to take on the record-setting event at New York’s World Marathon Majors on Aug. 5.
He won’t be alone.
And we’re going to see a lot of them, too.
The U.K. and Italy are hosting their own races.
Meanwhile, runners in other countries will be able to compete for medals.
For the U, the marathon will be contested by the British and Irish marathoners.
More to come.
