2008 Women's Olympic Marathon Trials in Boston

It's a busy couple of days in Boston for running, beginning with the 2008 women's Olympic marathon trials on Sunday, April 20th. Check the Web site for a complete list of runners and their bib numbers, profiles of the competitors, a map of the course, and more.

Deena Kastor, who finished third in the 2004 Olympic Marathon in Athens, has bib number 1. She came in fifth in last year's Boston Marathon but was first in the USA championship.

The 112th annual BAA Boston Marathon is set for the next day. Find all the details on this year's marathon, and on the rich history of the race, at the Web site.

And if you'll be in Boston Sunday or Monday, cheer the runners on. And definitely check the road closure/traffic restriction notes on the Web sites for the two races!
