At the age of 41, Bernard Lagat secured a spot at his fifth consecutive Olympic Games by winning the U.S. Olympic Trials 5000m with a time of 13:35. It was Lagat’s eighth national title at the distance!

We’d also like to congratulate and wish good luck in Rio to the many other Carlsbad 5000 Alum who made the U.S. Olympic Track & Field Team – Brenda Martinez, Shannon Rowbury, Amy Cragg, Jared Ward, Desi Linden, Shalane Flanagan, Meb Keflezighi and John Nunn.

Join us at the 2017 Carlsbad 5000 and get ready to tread on the same course as the many Olympians listed above!
