Race Report: Emily Durgin + 2024 USATF 10-Mile National Championships

Update: 2024-04-30


Adidas professional runner Emily Durgin is back on the podcast! She shares how it all went down at the 2024 USATF 10-Mile National Championships, which took place April 7, 2024, in Washington, D.C.

This is a follow up to Durgin's last appearance on WRS, where she told the story of how the USATF Olympic Trails Marathon played out for her. While Durgin had a really strong showing at that race, she didn't walk away with her ultimate goal: making the Olympic team. She placed a solid 9th and most importantly, she had prepared and raced with total determination. But, the marathon is tricky and unforgiving, and sometimes the day just doesn't go your way. That said, however, it was still a challenging disappointment to overcome.

The next question was then, How was Emily Durgin going to move forward?

Durgin tells you the answer here, and it's a strong, exciting statement!

In this episode, get great insight into life as a professional distance runner and what it looks like to bounce back big.

This episode is part of the WRS series of Race Report episodes. Just like last year, 2023, you can expect a Race Report episode for each race of the USATF Road Circuit series of races. Each episode features one top 10 runner telling the story of how the race went down, from her perspective. And because a race is never just about what happens on race day, you will get to know a little bit more about each one of the runners featured and how this race figures into their larger running story.

The USATF Running Circuit championship series of races happen throughout the United States all year long and each race serves as a national championship for the distance or the type of race that is being run. Also, at each one of these races, in addition to vying for a national title, runners earn cash prizes and they earn points. The points go toward the series overall, which is determined at the end of the year.

The next race on the circuit: the 1-mile National Championships which took place in Des Moines, Iowa, on April 23. A WRS Race Report is coming shortly. Be sure to subscribe to the podcast so you don't miss it!
