5k Olympic A Standard Attempt Tomorrow at Nike – Open to the Public

Lopez Lomong and Woody Kinkaid will be making an attempt to run the Olympic A Standard of 13:13.50 tomorrow night (Tuesday, September 10) on the Michael Johnson Track at Nike’s campus in Beaverton.

Joining the pair will be Matthew Centrowitz, the last gold-medal winner of an Olympic 1500m, and eight-time Canadian Record holder Moh Ahmed. Currently, Lomong holds a PR of 13:11.63, Kinkaid can boast a 13:12.22, and Centrowitz has run a 13:20.06.

This event is open to the public and a loud cheering section would be most appreciated! The festivities will start at 8:30p with the race at 9p. It will also be streamed live on Portland Track’s Tracklandia webpage.

We started the Run Oregon blog in February 2007, because felt like running in Oregon and SW Washington deserved more positive coverage. We also wanted to level the playing field so that small, non-profit races could compete with big events; and to support local race organizers.
