Meet the 2019 Elite Athlete Field!

Runners

Some of the world’s fastest ladies are heading to Boston Common

The field is headlined by four-time champion Molly Huddle, fresh off her ninth-place finish at the IAAF Championships in Doha, Qatar, where she ran 31:07.24. Joining Huddle on the Beacon Street starting line will be 21-year-old Iveen Chepkemoi of Kenya, riding a hot 2019 that includes a 31:59 personal best at the B.A.A. 10K in June. They’ll be challenged by U.S. Olympian and 2015 World Championships bronze medalist Emily Infeld, who looks to build off her 32:39 fourth-place performance in August’s Beach to Beacon 10K. For Huddle, October’s 10K marks a return to an event where her 2015 time of 31:21 remains an event record and the US 10K record for a women’s-only race.  She also broke the tape in 2008 (32:51), 2009 (32:07), and 2010 (32:00).
