It’s a busy weekend for KIMbia, so here are a few things to add to your calendar:

1. The Chicago Marathon
If you’re headed to Chicago this weekend, we’re having a gathering at Kitty O’Sheas (in the Hilton Hotel) starting at 3pm, ending whenever it ends. In attendance will be Tom Ratcliffe, Matt Taylor, Bob “Kugaa” Gusmini, Jamie LaChance, Matt Ellis, and Matt Tegenkamp. Rumored attendees include Chris Solinsky and Simon Bairu. Not attending is Godfrey Kiprotich.
Sunday is race day! Ben Maiyo, James Koskei, Evans Rutto, Christopher Cheboiboch, and Kathy Butler will take to the streets of Chicago. We’ll be providing live coverage of the race – text updates with the occasional photo and maybe a video – starting early Sunday morning. After the race, we’ll be congregating back at Kitty O’Sheas, hopefully to celebrate.2. The US 10-Mile Championships are taking place in Minneapolis on Sunday. Jason Hartmann is racing as a tune-up for the US Olympic Marathon Trials.3.The BAA Half-Marathon also takes place on Sunday. Tom Nyariki, Richard Kiplagat, and Edna Kiplagat are racing.

4. …Tufts 10K on Monday. Elva Dryer is racing. She’s going to run fast, but she’s also going to get a preview of the US Olympic Marathon Trials course. Instead of running the regular Boston course, the women’s marathon trials will be on a loop course very similar to the Tufts course.

Good luck to everyone racing this weekend!
