Women's Olympic Marathon Qualifier on April 20, 2008

With only six days to go until the next Women's Olympic Marathon qualifier, 162 runners have reportedly registered for the event.

The entire race, which will determine the Women's Team for the 2008 Olympics, will be available in streaming video from NBC. The race starts at 8:00 AM EST on April 20, 2008, the day before the Boston Marathon.

Tragedy struck a few months ago in the men's qualifier (November 3, 2007), when Olympic favorite Ryan Shay died of a heart attack during the race.
