Charlie Hurt and Thomas Adam traveled to Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota to compete in the US Marathon Championships, held in conjunction with the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon. The weather was ideal for the marathon, cool and fairly overcast. Hurt and Adam went out conservatively together then separated around four miles. Adam dropped back and eventually dropped out at 17 miles due to hamstring issues. Hurt got into a groove early and rolled through the half in 1:12:19, ahead of his split from Chicago last year. Through 21 miles, Hurt was on 2:24 pace, but shortly after cramps set in and Charlie struggled to the finish. Hurt ended up running 2:32:38 for 46th place. While the time was not quite what he was hoping to run, the training block was a success and Charlie is looking forward to what is in store in the future. Searchable results can be found below.
