For the first time since 2014, both reigning champions - Leonard Korir
for the men, Jordan Hasay for the women - return to defend their crowns at the Gate River Run
Saturday March 10.
“People always like to pull for the winners,” race director Doug Alred said.
History leans against a Korir-Hasay double repeat, something that’s happened at the Gate River Run only in 1986-87 (Arturo Barrios and Grete Waitz) and 2001-03 (Meb Keflezighi and Deena Drossin). Given Korir’s current form, though, he’s the clear men’s favorite.
A 31-year-old U.S. Olympian who was born in Kenya and now runs with the U.S. Army Distance Project, Korir made his First Coast debut a memorable success last year by edging Shadrack Kipchirchir last year in the closest finish in race history. (03/09/2018) ⚡AMP
