Bellefontaine Grad Running in Olympic Marathon Trials this Saturday

A 2012 graduate of Bellefontaine High School will be running in the Olympic Marathon Trials this Saturday in Atlanta. 

 

Nate Orndorf qualified at the 2019 CNO Financial Indianapolis Monumental Marathon.

 

With the race being on a hilly course in Atlanta, he said he’s been climbing in and out of the valley during long runs to get ready for the hills, as well as doing a bit of heat training on the treadmill.

 

Orndorf added that he tries not to place too much emphasis on any one workout, instead focusing on consistently stringing together average workouts week after week.

 

The 2020 U.S. Olympic Marathon course consists of three 6-mile loops and one 8.2-mile loop. 

 

The start line will be located just outside of Centennial Olympic Park, the crown jewel of the 1996 Atlanta Games.
