The 2011 Marine Corps Marathon weekend is proceeding on schedule, in spite of an early snowstorm on the East Coast. From the expo to the post-race finish festival, there's a full weekend of events, but here are some key links to info you'll want to know for the main event, the Marine Corps Marathon, and other running events.
In addition to the runner tracking and social media options above, Twitter updates from the race will appear on message boards at the finish line and other locations. (Note: to see Twitter updates about the Marine Corps Marathon or to get your messages included in the Twitter stream, use the hashtag #36thMCM.

One thing is sure, the temperature in D.C. should be cool on Sunday, which is good for marathon runners. They may have to wear extra layers of clothes at the start, but may well be rewarded with more comfortable running conditions and faster times.

Good luck to all participants in the 36th Marine Corps Marathon!

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
Results for the 2011 Nike Women's Marathon in San Francisco can be found here. [UPDATE: You can find results for the 2011 NWM marathon and half marathon here. Get information on the 2012 NWM Marathon (in San Francisco) and NWM Half Marathon (in Washington, D.C.) here] Or as much of the results are available. There doesn't yet seem to be a way to view overall results; you enter a runner's name or bib number in a "Find Your Results" search box.

There are images of finishers' medals with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, but no times, with "Official Results Coming Soon" noted. (Update: it was later changed to say that final results will be posted as soon as they are available.) You might be able to find more information at the 2011 Nike Women's Marathon Facebook page, or at the race's website.

For some reason, Nike has never made it easy to find the results for this race. Most races have a straightforward "Results" link clearly visible on the home page, but not this one.

The 2011 Nike Women's Marathon took place October 16th.

2011 Chicago Marathon - Race Results

Chicago Marathon race results are up here. Though the site says that these are unofficial results, they should at least give a good idea where runners finished.

Despite warm temperatures, the 2011 Chicago Marathon featured some blazing (and record-setting) performances. Moses Mosop of Kenya set a course record with a time of 2:05:38 to win the men's race, and Lilliua Shobukhova of Russia obliterated the competition, winning the women's division by nearly four minutes and even throwing in a sprint at the end to finish in 2:18:30. It was her third straight Chicago Marathon win.

Congrats to all finishers. If you ran today's Chicago Marathon, what did you think of the race? Were the conditions tough? And were there enough fluids at the aid stations?

Inaugural Brooklyn Marathon Nearly Full

Registration is filling up fast for the first-ever Brooklyn Marathon on Nov. 20th.

Fewer than 20 spots remain open for the inaugural Brooklyn Marathon in Prospect Park, the race organizers announced on Twitter this morning. The race, which takes place on November 20th, is capped at 250 participants and has about 20 spots.

[UPDATE: See information on the 2012 Brooklyn Marathon, which will be held Nov. 18th.]

It seems a marathon in Brooklyn is an idea whose time has come, based on how quickly the race is filling up. Although the race takes place totally in Prospect Park, the organizers, NYCRUNS, hope to take it out into the streets in future years. (It should be remembered that the first New York City Marathon consisted of four-plus loops of Central Park.)

The Brooklyn Marathon will consist of six full loops of Prospect Park and three lower loops.

Find out more details about the inaugural 2011 Brooklyn Marathon here (including a map of Prospect Park, with a downloadable version). If you aren't planning on running it or can't get in, you can always come out to cheer, or to volunteer.

For runners interesting in knowing the Brooklyn Marathon elevation, I found this map and elevation profile for Prospect Park online. It's designed for a bike-riding course and I can't vouch for its accuracy, but it was supposedly created using a GPS device. Here's another map and elevation profile of Prospect Park.

If you're interested in running the first-ever Brooklyn Marathon, you'll want to register soon.

2011 Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon

You'll find the Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon results at this link. I don't know much about this race, which took place yesterday (October 1st), but a few runners I know of were really excited about it. (The idea of wine, food, and running sounds like a winning combination to me, for sure.)

The race took place at the Disney mega-complex in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. The race was apparently part of a wine and dine weekend. You can find out more about the Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon here.
