Marielle Hall ran a 1,500 PR this week in the Bowerman Track Club’s latest intrasquad meet in Oregon.
Hall, a Mount Laurel native and Haddonfield High School graduate, ran 4:10.77 Tuesday night, breaking her previous lifetime PR of 4:12.14 set at the HOKA New Jersey-New York Track Club Twilight Meet at Franklin Field on June 14, 2017 at Franklin Field.
Track and field has been severely limited this spring and summer, but through the series of Bowerman Track Club intrasquad meets Hall has managed to race three times and PR in the 1,500 and the 3,000 [8:48.72 earlier this month].
Hall’s time is third-fastest ever at 1,500 meters by a South Jersey native, behind another Haddonfield graduate Olympian, Erin Donohue, who ran 4:03.49, in Rieti, Italy, in 2010, and Ocean City graduate Renee Tomlin, who ran 4:08.09 at the Oxy High Performance Distance Classic at the Bill Henry Track at Occidental College in Los Angeles on May 17, 2013.
The race was presumably at Jesuit High School in Portland, where Bowerman has been racing, although the results do not list a venue.
World Athletics lists Hall’s time as No. 14 in the world this year.
