Cragg a class apart at Road to Gold

Amy Cragg (above, right – image by Jane Monti) got her year of road racing off to a flying start with victory at the Road to Gold 8-mile road race in Atlanta, Georgia, on Saturday.

The 35-year-old clocked 43:23 to come home a clear winner ahead of Carrie Dimoff (44:23) and Brittany Charboneau (44:32). This was Cragg’s first race since the US Cross Country Championships in Tallahassee last month, where the Bowerman Track Club member finished fifth in 33:18.

The race served as a test event for the 2020 US Olympic marathon trials, which will take place in one year, when Cragg will return to Atlanta hoping to book her place at the Tokyo Olympics.
