BRC/Adidas runners Wendy Thomas and Mattie Suver will compose the entirety of the women’s team representing the USA at the World Championships for the half marathon on March 29th in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Suver, who hails from Colorado Springs, where she runs as part of the American Distance Project while working part-time in a physical therapy clinic, was recently named USA Road Runner of the Year by the RRCA. Her personal best for the half is 1:11.56.
Thomas is a Windsor resident who also trains with the American Distance Project. The mom of two works as a property manager and has clocked a 1:12.29 half marathon.
Before these two take off for Denmark however, look for them at this Saturday’s Gate RiverRun/USA 15k Championships in Jacksonville, FL.
