SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Current Rice track and field volunteer coach and three-time All-American and Rice alumnus Becky Wade won the 31st annual California International Marathon Sunday with the fastest time by an American.
Wade, who was making her marathon debut, won the 26.2 mile race in a time of 2:30.41, passing Sarah Kiptoo in the final mile after trailing for much of the race. Wade’s time, which was the fifth-fastest by an American this year, was easily good enough to qualify for the 2016 U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials.
Wade ran at Rice from 2007-12 and set school records in the 3000m steeple, 5000m, 10,000m and indoor 5000m.
Between the men’s and women’s race there were 7,056 official finishes and the temperatures were in the high 20’s. The CIM is put on by the Sacramento Running Association.
