This piece is from Race Results Weekly! David Monti puts together amazing pieces on the middle distances and distances. This piece is used with Race Results Weekly permission.

We loved the Gateshead DL, or as I called it Gateshead revisited!

The AJC Peachtree Road Race was held on July 3-4, 2021. The elite race was held early on 4 July, under conditions developed to respect the requirements of the pandemic, both national and local.

We thank David Monti for this piece and wanted you to see the quality of the racing with our marathon teams competing in the USA 10k champs and the largest 10k race in the world.

This piece is on the Oslo Bislett Games, which occurred On July 1, 2021. My apologies for the delay, as I was catching up on our Olympic Trials coverage and travel back from Oregon to California. We are days from returning to lovely Wisconsin, our home. I have not been home in four months.

I love Race Results Weekly. David and Jane Monti's focus on middle and long distances gives us detail and commentary that we normally do not get see. Their news service provides current updates on global distance running around the world.

This piece is on the distance events in the Oslo Bislett Games. We hope that you enjoy it.

This is a piece on the last day of the USA Olympic Trials, June 27, by Race Results Weekly. I had missed this piece last week, but I think that it sheds more light on the events.

Richard Sands wrote this piece on the Olympic Trials for Race Results Weekly, and we at RunBlogRun use this with permission.

This piece should be passed around! The weather will be monstrous this weekend in Eugene, Oregon, and USATF has moved the 10,000m for women, 20,000m race walks and the 5,000m for men to earlier times.

One wonders why they did not move the entire schedule to the evening on Friday and Saturday and Sunday.

But, then, I am not the federation.

The announcement about Shelby Houlihan will change the complexion of the races at 1,500m and 5,000m at the Olympic Trials.

The announcement about Shelby Houlihan means that an athlete, who has shown no inclination to dope in the past, will miss a pivotal Olympic Trials and Olympic Games.

David Monti of Race Results Weekly has put the situation into one strong column. Please read this and then, read my next column on this sad situation.

One of our most iconic distance athletes, Molly Huddle will not be competing in the 2021 U.S. Olympic Trials due to a nagging injury. David Monti did this salute to the winner of 28 USATF Championships, including five titles at 10,000m, and three at 5,000m.
We will miss Molly Huddle this year.

This is the feature by Dave and Jane Monti of Race Results Weekly on the excellent win last weekend, at the Mastercard NY Mini 10-K, by Sara Hall, as she gears up for the U.S. Olympic Trials.
Just how good is Sara Hall? I think that she finally is accepting her own talent, and her drive and focus seem better than any time in her career. The steepler via 1,500m, turned 5,000m, then marathoner, now marathon and 10,000m athlete has been a unique evolution.

Great to see that NYRR is getting back, as it is safe, to hosting elite competitions.
