Brian Reynolds set the official double below-the-knee amputee world record in the Chicago Marathon on October 8, 2017, where he ran 3:06:31.
ElliptiGO and World Class Track & Field training program Altis World have partnered to create a recipe for success.
Heading into the 2017 school year, ElliptiGO launched its School Giveaway Contest in August, inviting high school and college coaches across the country from all sports to submit an application saying how their program would use the product and why they were deserving of this complete training package, valued at $3,000.
ElliptiGO elite track and field athletes were stars at the USA Track and Field Championships, and many earned berths to the World Champs.
In the 40th running of the TCS New York City Marathon, three ElliptiGO athletes finished in the top 10 and six placed in the top 20, cheered on by Rio Olympians and fellow ElliptiGO athletes Meb Keflezighi and Jared Ward, who were co-Grand Marshalls of the race.
In the 2016 Chicago Marathon, after making ElliptiGO rides an integral part of his training, Brian Pilcher rewrote the record books as he passed through nearly every major checkpoint, establishing new U.S. 60–64 marks for the half marathon, 25K and 30K.
For a handful of ElliptiGO athletes, the conclusion of the U.S. Olympic Track and Field Trials was just one more step leading to their ultimate goal – participating in the Rio 2016 Olympics. Emily Infeld, Colleen Quiqley, Kate Grace and Shannon Rowbury all qualified to participate in the Games, joining Meb Keflezighi, who had previously qualified in the US Olympic Marathon Trials, as well as several ElliptiGO athletes from other countries.
ElliptiGO athlete Meb Keflezighi secured a spot on his fourth Olympic team Saturday by finishing second at the 2016 U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials. At 40 years old, Keflezighi is the oldest American distance runner ever to qualify for the Olympics. One key to his success is ElliptiGO training, which helps him optimize recovery, increase his volume and keep up with the high mileage he needs for marathon distance success.
A dynasty running program has emerged in Temecula, California. Since 2010, the Wolfpack of Great Oak High School has claimed seven state championships in cross country. At the helm of these juggernauts is Doug Soles, head coach for both the girls’ and boys’ teams – and a strong believer in training on ElliptiGO bikes.
Steph Dinius, Olympic Marathon Trials qualifier and ElliptiGO athlete, kicked off her Olympic year by taking the women’s title at the Jacksonville (Fla.) Bank Half Marathon on January 3. Dinius covered the 13.1-mile course in 1:13:41, just 13 seconds off her personal best.
