Registration now open for 2020 U.S. Olympic Team Trials - Marathon
INDIANAPOLIS -- Qualified athletes may now register for the 2020 U.S. Olympic Team Trials – Marathon, to be held on February 29 in Atlanta, Georgia, USATF and Atlanta Track Club announced today.
As announced last month, due to record participation expected and after receiving feedback from America’s best marathoners and coaches, adjustments to the 2020 U.S. Olympic Team Trials – Marathon course have been made. The race organizers will replace a previously planned six-mile-loop with an eight-mile-loop, which the athletes will run three times. This change will decrease the number of turns and reduce overall elevation gain on the course.
The top three women place finishers and top three men place finishers at Trials will select themselves to the team that will compete in the men’s & women’s marathon competitions at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020. Spectators are invited to enjoy the race for free along the route, as well as watch live on NBC.
