No word if any kids are flying in for this one. And to my knowledge, I have yet to know of a Kenyan youngster who has run in this race. I won't doubt African kids have run in it- just not Kenyans. Besides it is not a competitive event anyway.
I'll be over at Dacotah Field volunteering for the Kids Run. It has its own website- the race not the field.
On the big races, it looks like a competitive field in the half. Since USTAF allowed a half marathon time to qualify for the trials, more potential Olympians have been giving it a go. Dan Greeno is one of them. There should be plenty of athletes hoping to get a trials qualifying time but the nets have been pretty mum.
Camille Herron, however, is running the marathon and hopes to make a PR and break the women's course record. She finished 4th in the Indy Mini-Marathon a few weeks ago. The Indiana native may be the favorite with last year's winner Leah Thorvilson not registered. Chris Erichsen is also onto other races. I think he might be running Grandma's in June.
