LetsRun.com's Track Talk
Your weekly running and track and field fix

Doha DL Opener, Zuckerberg 19:34 5k, Penn, Drake, and Which Sprint Phenom Would You Rather Be?

9 months ago

The Penn and Drake Relays are in the books and the 4 x Mile Collegiate records still stands.

The Diamond League season kicks off Friday with a loaded Doha meet with Sha'Carri Richardson taking on Shericka Jackson and Dina Asher-Smith. A slew of American distance runners will be in Doha but non bigger than Emma Coburn in the steeple.

19-year-old teen phenom Letsile Tebogo shined at the Botswana Grand Prix, while 18-year-old Issam Asinga is tearing it up in the US, but you'd rather be Erriyon Knighton right? Or would you?

Plus which would you rather see? Kipchoge vs Evans Chebet in NYC or Kipchoge vs Kelvin Kiptum in Berlin?

The On Sound Running Track Fest is Saturday in LA at Mt. Sac with loaded fields, FREE food trucks, a concert, and a compact schedule. Be there if you're in California or watch PPV everywhere else. Details here.
