LetsRun.com Weekly
So we've had two world records in three days, and yesterday we just saw six world leaders at the Ethiopian Olympic trials in Hengelo. What a week, huh?

Wait, you're telling me NCAAs start tonight? And there's a Diamond League in Florence tomorrow?

We're in the middle of one of the best -- and busiest -- periods of the running calendar. Sifan Hassan and Letesenbet Gidey have earned a moment to catch their breath, but the beat goes on for running fans, starting with day 1 of the NCAA championships this evening (8 p.m. ET, ESPNU).

Anyone who follows the sport knows NCAAs is one of the best meets in the world -- a true championship meet where the outcome matters, while doubling as a breeding ground for future talent.

To make it even more enjoyable, we're running our $200,021 Prediction Contest. Simply make your picks for the top 3 in every running event (we've got a handy picking guide to help you out) and you could win $200,021 for a perfect bracket. The top three finishers in the contest will all win their choice of shoes from On, plus a LetsRun t-shirt (classic yellow or 1:59:40 GOAT). It's free to enter, so why wouldn't you? Entries close Friday at 4:00 p.m. ET -- yes, that means you can change your picks after the prelims on Wednesday and Thursday.

One event guaranteed to have a new champ is the men's steeple, which is completely wide-open.
