August 3, 2014 -- After her debut 10K on the roads at Saturday's TD Beach to Beacon 10K in Cape Elizabeth, ME, Jordan Hasay was all smiles.

Women Are Better Marathon Pacers than Men, Study Suggests

November 13, 2013 by NYRR staff

Psychologists and stand-up comedians can argue about whether women are more levelheaded than men, but when it comes to running marathons, they’re definitely steadier in their pacing.

That’s according to a new study by researchers at the University of Dayton, who analyzed data from the 2007 and 2009 Bank of America Chicago Marathons. The number-crunchers chose those races due to their large turnouts (more than 33,000 total runners) and wide temperature variation (78 degrees in ’07, Read More

Kenya's Hillary Yego and Nancy Joan Rotich Win at Athens Marathon

November 11, 2013 by NYRR staff

Back in 490 BC, legend tells us, a Greek messenger named Pheidippides ran some 25 miles from Marathon to Athens to tell his fellow citizens of a resounding victory over the Persian army. He reportedly dropped dead of exhaustion, but not before setting the distance (more or less) for today’s marathon.

Fast-forward to Sunday, November 10, and the big news wasn’t Athenians beating Persians but rather Kenyans defeating all comers, as athletes from that country topped Read More

November 08, 2013 by NYRR staff

Tegla Loroupe didn’t win the 10K race at the Dubai Women’s Run on November 8, but that was never her intention.

Lining up for the event—which Hungary’s Szofia Erdelyi won with a time of 33:15—the legendary Kenyan, age 40, was looking beyond the finish line and thinking about far more than individual achievements.

Since retiring from the professional circuit, the three-time half-marathon world champion has embarked on a second career as global peace ambassador, and she’s Read More

November 06, 2013 by NYRR staff

After a disappointing marathon debut back in May, 16-year-old Alana Hadley has proven herself at 26.2 miles.

Competing on Saturday, November 2, at the Indianapolis Monumental Marathon, the hotly tipped high schooler from Charlotte, NC, finished in 2:41:56, taking fourth place and erasing memories of the hamstring troubles that plagued her first try and led to a 2:58:22 in Cleveland.

More important, by running faster than 2:43:00, Hadley met the qualifying standards for the U.S. Olympic Trials, Read More
