This past Sunday, the first world major marathon of the 2022 season was held in Berlin.
Runner's from all over the world, including a heavy NYC presence and a few Bandit OTQ hopefuls, took to the streets for a fast 26.2 course. Spoiler alert, not one but two of our Bandit Athletes punched their ticket to the Olympic Marathon Trials: Erin Gregoire, 4th American woman, with a time of 2:36:21 and Brendan Martin, 2nd American man, with a killer 2:16:02.
Also incredible running from our two other Bandit Athletes: Lily Anderson who finished with a 5 minute personal best of 2:38:42. Jeanne Mack crushing until an unexpected issue late in the game, still kept it sub-3. Marathon be like that sometimes.
World Records were broken, goals were made, some were not, but all in, what an incredible day. Congratulations to all finishers.
Here are just a few of our favorite moments from the race.
