Olympic Triathlon Champion to race USATF National Champs over 10,000m
The next step in the Gwen Jorgensen ‘runner’ racing career takes place tomorrow (Thursday) in Des Moines, Iowa. Racing on day one of the USA Track and Field National Championships, Gwen will race in the 10,000m at 7p.m. local time (1a.m. Friday in the UK.).
As you would expect, the field is a very strong one (HERE), including Molly Huddle and Emily Sisson, both of whom with PB times 30 seconds or more faster than Gwen.
So far, Gwen’s post-triathlon racing has included:
- 5,000m indoors – 15:15.64 – in Seattle
- 10,000m outdoors – 31:55.69 – winning at Stanford
- Half Marathon – 4th (1:10:58) at U.S. Half Marathon Championships
Race week is here. Very excited to lace up and race 25 laps on Thursday. #MotivationMonday
