Hall hopes to set new American record.
One of America’s top marathoners, Ryan Hall, will run the 2010 edition of the Bank of America Chicago Marathon. Hall announced this to the media just two weeks before he is to race the 2010 Boston Marathon.
Hall said today that he not only hopes to win the race, but to break the American record in the process:
“I have been preparing for an attempt to lower the American record since I ran my first marathon in London in 2007, and there is no other U.S. course that could allow me a better opportunity than Chicago,” commented Hall from Boston where he is in final preparation for the Boston Marathon on April 19. “It’s remarkably flat and fast with a veteran production team that sets a stage for athletes to produce personal and national records, which is my goal. The Bank of America Chicago Marathon also has a long history of generating millions of dollars for charitable causes, so it felt like the ideal place to expand our Hall Steps Foundation running team from the 20 that will run in Boston to 100 in Chicago.”
