Paris Olympics 2024: US Marathon Team Trials Live Streaming, Schedule, Where to Watch and More

America’s top marathon runners are gearing up for the US Olympic Marathon Trials on February 3, 2024. They’re competing for a chance to be part of the team headed to the 2024 Paris Olympics. The United States has room for just three men and three women marathoners for Paris. They have to be among the top three at the trials or they won’t make it to the Olympics.

The runners had to hit certain times to qualify for these trials. Men needed to run a marathon in 2 hours 18 minutes or a half marathon in 1 hour 3 minutes. Women had to finish a marathon in 2 hours 37 minutes or a half marathon in 1 hour 12 minutes. The USATF, which is the track and field governing body, set the qualifying period for the marathon from January 1, 2022, to December 5, 2023.

Half marathon qualifiers had from January 1 to December 5, 2023. The USATF shared news about the trials on X, which used to be Twitter. They said everyone could watch the best US runners compete for Olympic spots on live TV. On Peacock from 10 in the morning until 1 in the afternoon, Eastern Time, and on NBC from noon until 3 pm, Eastern Time. They’re asking who will grab the top spots.

The standards to get into the 2024 Paris Marathon are 2:08:10 for men and 2:26:50 for women. Out of all the runners, only two men and three women have hit these Olympic times before the trials. For the men, keep an eye on Conner Mantz, Clayton Young, and Galen Rupp, the bronze medalist from the 2020 Tokyo Games. Mantz and Young have already run faster than the Olympic standard during the qualifying window.

CJ Albertson, who set a record in the 50K, Sam Chelanga, and Scott Fauble are also runners with a serious shot at doing well in the trials. For the women, watch for Emily Sisson and Keira D’Amato, who’s been the fastest in 2023, Betsy Saina, and Molly Seidel, who won a bronze medal in Tokyo. Other strong contenders include Lindsay Flanagan, Sara Hall, Gabi Rooker, Aliphine Tuliamuk, and Sara Vaughn.
