In a tune-up for the U.S. Olympic Trials Marathon on Feb. 13 in Los Angeles, two-time Olympian Kara Goucher will run the Humana Rock ‘n’ Roll San Antonio Half Marathon on Dec. 6.
“I am looking forward to racing at Rock ‘n’ Roll San Antonio with good health and good spirits as I continue towards the Olympic Trials Marathon,” Goucher said. “Competitor Group always puts on well-organized races with strong fields and I’m excited to get out and race.”
Goucher, 37, is fresh off a strong performance at the Big Sur Half Marathon, winning the race in 1:11:13. She’s aiming to make her third Olympic team—having represented the U.S. in the 10,000m in 2008 and in the marathon in 2012. She also owns a bronze medal in the 10,000m on the track from the 2007 IAAF World Championships.
The Rock ‘n’ Roll San Antonio Half Marathon takes runners on a tour of the south Texas city with a start and finish at the Alamodome. The weekend of events also includes a 5K, 10K, marathon and relay.
