Santa Fe's Rotich Racing in Daegu this Evening

Caroline and the Kenyan banner
Santa Fe's Caroline Rotich is on the start list for this evening's World Marathon Championship in Daegu, South Korea, (9am local starting time in Korea, 6pm MDT). Caroline is competing for team Kenya with hopes that a good performance may give her an edge to be named to next year's Olympic team. She has been running strong over the last year and may be taking a bit of a gamble running Worlds over a fall major like New York or Berlin where she could cash in a bit from her 9th at NYC last fall, and a 4th at Boston in April. Then again, it's possible she could torch Daegu since many of the top athletes will not be there due to commitments at Chicago, NYC, and Berlin. Team USA includes Boulder's ageless Colleen de Reuck, Tera Moody, Zoila Gomez, Kathy Newberry, and Alisa McKaig. None are expected to contend for a top ten finish. Cheers to home town gal Caroline, clean pair of heels and a bit of good fortune to her this evening. 

The live race feed and archived race video will be available on for what looks like $3.99. 

Updated:  Tough night/morning for Caroline. I don't know how the first half of the race went for her but the finish was less than optimal, crossing the line in 29th in 2hr37min. Her teammates swept the podium places up front. American Tera Moody had a fine showing in 17th, 2hr32min. Full results here.
