The fifth-fastest qualifier in the field, Hartmann will be running in his second Marathon Trials on January 14. The Rockford, Michigan native, who was a high school teammate of Dathan Ritzenhein, finished tenth at the Trials in 2009. He won the 2009 Twin Cities Marathon in 2:12:31, and followed that up with a 2:11:06 personal best at the 2010 Chicago Marathon, where he finished as the top American in eighth place overall.
