84 Olympic Trials Marathoners Sign Petition Asking Max Siegel to Move 2024 Trials Start Time to 6 A.M.

October 11, 2023

Top American marathoners Jared Ward, Sara Hall, and Emily Sisson will be part of a Zoom call on Thursday with USATF CEO Max Siegel to discuss the start time of the 2024 US Olympic Marathon Trials. They were among 84 athletes who signed a letter to Siegel on September 15 petitioning USATF to move the start times of the Trials, which will be held on February 3 in Orlando. USATF announced in August that the races would start at 12:10 p.m. for men and 12:20 p.m. for women. The athletes requested that the Trials start at “preferably 6:00 a.m., but no later than 7:00 a.m.” LetsRun
