NE/NY Trials Hopefuls Flock to JAX Bank Half

Of the nationally and
regionally elite
63 men and 48
women who have entered the 33rd Jacksonville Bank Half Marathon set for this
Sunday, Jan. 3, close to 20 hail from New England or New York (full list
below
). .

 

With a flat course and JAX six weeks out from the trials,
Gate River Run 15K elite coordinator Richard Fannin got in touch with
organizers about accommodating those who’ve made the trials and those looking
to. This wasn’t too difficult as JAX RD Doug Alred is also the Gate River Run
15K RD.

 

So, those pacing and those chasing were privy to no frills
(as 3-4 to a room) hotel accommodations and comped entry ‰ÛÓ BUT ‰ÛÓ more
importantly, a last shot at the trials qualifier. OK, Houston is 4 weeks out,
but as Fannin points out, the elite entry qualification at Houston for men is
1:02 and change.

 

“The latest weather forecast puts it at 46 to 49 degrees and
you’ve got a flat course,” noted Fannin in a telephone call with NER. “There
are also athletes who’ve already qualified who’ll help pace those who haven’t.
It should be pretty exciting, I’m psyched to see what happens.”

 

JAX is something of a cult race that usually draws 1,000+
runners (1,284 finishers in 2014) with a first place prize of $500. JAX is
putting up an additional $300 for everyone who hits a Trials standard. This is
definitely a throwback race to a time when athletes ran for the love of it and
organizers were just as passionate. More to follow in the Mar/Apr edition of
NER.
