Congratulations to, Utah's own, Jared Ward, for his sixth place finish in the Men's Marathon at the Rio 2016 Olympics. Not only did he set a new personal best 2:11:30, but he ran negative splits (1:05:59 for the first half and 1:05:31 for the second half). This is brilliant pacing and the reason he looked so strong in the end.
We could not be more proud of Jared and can't wait to see him out at the Company Cup 5k and the Wasatch Mile on Thursday, September 22, 2016, as our Race Ambassador. Be sure to come on out to the race to meet Jared and tell him congratulations in person.
