2006 Carlsbad 5000

Meseret Defar from Ethiopia, the 2004 Olympic champion at 5000 meters, set a pending world best for a road 5K at the Carlsbad 5000, on April 9. The quaint beach town of Carlsbad, north of San Diego, had another marvelous day for running. The masters’ races were run early in the morning under overcast skies. By noon, as the invitational competitors lined up to race, skies were clear and a gentle breeze blew from the north.
