Final Team USA Rosters Set for 2016 BolderBOULDER

After last minute additions and replacements men’s and women’s teams stronger than ever

BOULDER, CO (May 19, 2016) – After a few late adjustments, the rosters for the Men’s and Women’s Team USA in the 2016BolderBOULDER – America’s All-Time Best 10K `according to Runner’s World – are now final and looking even stronger than expected. With Brian Shrader completing the men’s team, and Sara Slattery, Tara Welling, Stephanie Rothstein, Brittni Hutton and most recently Rochelle Kanuho joining the women, officials are expecting excellent results from the home teams.

Shrader was brought in as a replacement to Jonathan Grey who was set to run but had to drop out due to a scheduling issue. This is the only change on the men’s team from the original roster. Shrader won the 2014 US 12k Championships while still a student at Northern Arizona University, setting a national record in the process.

The women’s team has been slower to develop, but is now complete. In the past few weeks two big names have added to the list in Slattery and Welling. Slattery, who was the last american winner of the BoulderBOULDER in 2006, and hit the Olympic A standard for the 10k earlier this spring, was brought in to replace Alisha WIlliams who was on the original list. Welling is currently the top ranked American on the team, with recent victories in the US Half-Marathon Championships and Gate River Run which is also the National 15k championship.

Rounding out the women’s teams in the last few weeks are: Kanuho, who stepped in after the unfortunate loss of Renee Metivier Baillie (who had to drop out after getting “spiked” in a recent track race); Hutton, who won the citizen’s race last year; and Rothstein who saw some strong results in 2012 and 2013 but took some time off from competition to have a child in 2014.
