Olympic Marathon Trials Results: Locals Only!

January 15, 2012 By: John Blue Category: General Running News, Road Races

You are probably by now aware that the Olympic Marathon trials were held in Houston this past Saturday.

During your long run this morning, you may have asked your running buddies something like, “I wonder how that woman from our club did? I think her name is Susan. Or maybe it’s Suzanne. I’m not quite sure but, you know, she’s has kind of brown hair and is kind of skinny? You know who I’m talking about?”

No. I don’t know, but I did look through the results and tried to pick out as many locals as I could find and collected their results here.

I don’t generally include folks from the Bay Area, but I did this time because many of these athletes do compete in Sacramento area races. And this race is kind of a big deal.

Congratulations to everyone who made it to the starting line!

The Women’s race was won by Shalane Flanagan in 2:25:38.

The Men’s race was won by Meb Keflezighi in 2:09:08.

Local men finishers include:

Place Name Team Time

70 Crosby Freeman Asics Aggie Running Club 2:22:28
79 Tim Tollefson Chico Track Club 2:27:00

I included Ryan Hall here because he now lives in Redding–so if I’m stretching “local” to include the Bay Area, it seems reasonable to include Redding, too.

Complete results are here.
