The Nike Oregon Project's Jordan Hasay and Tara Erdmann will attempt to hit the World Championship qualifying time at the Portland Roughrider Twilight Meet on July 15. 31:45 and 32:05 are the IAAF A and B standards. If either or both reach the standard they will join Team USA in Moscow!
Becuase of the stakes are high, and optimal weather conditions required, the 10K could move to July 14 or shift to another location so stay tuned to Facebook and Twitter for updates later this week.
