"Highlighting Atlanta's Olympic history and legacy, the course for the U.S. Olympic Team Trials – Marathon will take athletes on a tour of some of Atlanta's most important attractions and neighborhoods," the race's website notes.
Elevation information for the course can be found here.
In order to participate in the trial, athletes had to run a qualifying marathon between Sept. 1, 2017, and Jan. 19, 2020. For men, the qualifying time was between 2:15:00 and 2:19:00. For women, it was between 2:37:00 and 2:45:00.
Information on the athletes who have qualified for the trials is available on the race's website here.
Running Magazine reports that nearly 800 athletes have qualified for the event, which makes the field of competitors nearly double what it was in 2016.
Scott Fauble, Parker Stinson and Andrew Bumbalough are among the male runners with the fastest qualifying times, while Sara Hall, Stephanie Bruce and Nell Rojas are at the top of the women's field.
NBC will broadcast the race beginning at noon, but for Atlantans who want to go out and see it live, spectator information can be found here. For visitors coming in from out of town, there is information on navigating MARTA, where to say and what to do in Atlanta available here.
