Shannon Rowbury, the current American record holder in the 5,000 meters on the track, was one of many great names that headlined the elite women’s race at this year’s Carlsbad 5000 event. Brenda Martinez, who threw herself to the finish to snag a spot on the Olympic 1,500-meter team after missing a spot in the 800 meters, also competed. Neely Spence Gracey, marathoning’s rising star, was also among the fastest to race that famous oceanfront course last week in Carlsbad, Calif.

But did you miss the action, all the way to the finish stretch. Watch the whole race unfold here, with words from the great commentator Toni Reavis.
