Victah Sailer has posted an in-depth preview of this Sunday's Yokohama Women's Ekiden at LetsRun.com. The all-star U.S. team, featuring Katie McGregor and Carrie Tollefson faces serious competition from the Russian and Kenyan squads.
McGregor acknowledges the strong field in a press release from Team USA Minnesota, but notes that the U.S. women have fancy plans for their trip to Japan. "Other countries are also forming great teams because they know we have a good one," said McGregor. "We have a goal of getting the American record and the course record too."
McGregor is slated for a 10K leg, while Tollefson will cover 6K.
