Top American Athletes Ready to Rock the 1/2 Marathon in San Jose

Posted September 29th, 2016

"Of all the adjectives you could use to describe the Rock ‘n’ Roll San Jose Half Marathon one that would never apply is the word “slow.” This annual event, which takes place on Sunday, happens to be the fastest 13.1-mile event in the state of California. Mammoth Track Club elite competitor Shadrack Biwott will be toeing the line in San Jose on Sunday and is well aware of the speed he will need to be exhibiting along the flat course that starts in the middle of the city known as the “Capital of Silicon Valley”. The 31-year-old Biwott, who is coached by Andrew Kastor, the husband of American Olympic bronze medalist Deena Kastor, will be running San Jose as a way to prepare for the TCS New York City Marathon in November."

Elite races to be streamed live on Periscope @RunRocknRoll at 8:00am PST on Sunday, October 2.
