Hall Withdraws Due to Injury

Hall withdraws

NEW YORK CITY – The 2013 ING New York City Marathon men’s professional field will lose previously announced U.S. Olympian Ryan Hall due to a hip injury, it was announced by New York Road Runners officials.

“In my zealous efforts to have redemption in this year’s ING New York City Marathon, I overstepped the first and most important rule—making it to the line healthy,” said Hall. “A long string of very aggressive training has aggravated my hip and it has not been able to fully calm down, such that I don’t think racing on it is wise. I am very disappointed that I won’t be lining up on November 3rd as I had so looked forward to, but I am refocusing now on getting back to 100% and going after some big goals in 2014. Redemption will have to wait, but it will be all the more sweet.”

The U.S. men’s field features Hall’s 2012 U.S. Olympic Marathon teammate Meb Keflezighi. Other top Americans include two-time fourth-place Boston Marathon finisher Jason Hartmann, last year’s eighth-ranked U.S. marathoner Ryan Vail, and 2013 World Championships team member Jeffrey Eggleston.
