Marathon Trials Triumph & Heartbreak, Indoor Track Heats Up, Kessler > Wightman, (Guest) Gary Corbitt on NY Pioneer Club

4 months ago

The Olympic Trials delivered, indoor track is really heating up and it's Millrose Week.

Track and field historian Gary Corbitt joins us at 121:29 to talk about the historical impact of the Pioneer Club, one of the first integrated track and field clubs in America, and an exhibit at the New York Historical Society titled, Running for Civil Rights: The New York Pioneer Club, 1936 – 1976, which is open through February 25th.

Fiona O'Keefe is America's newest marathon star, Clayton Young and Conner Mantz delivered the goods, but with a less than satisfying finish, and what does the future hold for Zach Panning and Galen Rupp amongst others?

Hobbs Kessler took down Jake Wightman and Noah Lyles blasted a 60 at the NBIGP.
