Rumors are swirling that top American marathoner Ryan Hall, who pulled out of this year’s Bank of America Chicago Marathon after a disappointing 13th-place finish at the ING Rock ‘n’ Roll Philadelphia Half Marathon on September 19, has split from his longtime coach, Terrence Mahon and will no longer train with the Mammoth Track Club.
Hall, who is currently vacationing in Central America with his wife Sara, has not yet made any formal announcement regarding this decision. The couple’s names no longer appear on the Mammoth Track Club’s website, and Runner’s World’s Peter Vigneron reports that Mammoth Track Club members Anna Pierce and Josh Cox say Hall confirmed his decision with them via e-mail earlier this week. Pierce has said the Halls have no plans to relocate from their current home base of Mammoth Lakes, Calif., however the New York Times is reporting otherwise.
