Atlanta is a city with an Olympic legacy, and, on Feb. 29, 2020, it will host the Olympics again — this time for the U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials. The course will weave 26.2 miles through the city. But winning a bid to host the Olympic Trials is almost as challenging as the race itself. WABE profiled four Atlantans who are competing — two men and two women whose marathon times make them most likely to qualify. Find out more about them and the trials below. View the race course as provided by the Atlanta Track Club.
