Galen Rupp Will Race Olympic Marathon Trials


Galen Rupp has given American distance running fans the answer they so desperately craved- the U.S. 10,000m record holder will make his marathon debut at the 2016 U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials in Los Angeles on February 13th. 

In an interview with USATF.tv, the 30-year-old Olympic silver medalist set in motion what will arguably be the most highly-anticipated marathon debut in U.S. history, as Rupp's 26:44 10K PR makes him an ideal candidate to compete with the East African heavyweights that have dominated the 26.2 mile event for decades.
