It was an incredible day of road racing at the 2014 Carlsbad 5000. The Runnerazzi captured some highlights from many of the different divisions today, with the highlight being Bernard Lagat’s American Record run. Today, Bernard Lagat broke a 1996 5K road record by running a 13:19 5K and finishing only 6 seconds beyond 2012 5000m Olympic Silver Medalist Dejen Gebremeskel. The women’s elite division was won by Olympian Julia Bleasdale with a blazing time of 15:06. To see 2014 Carlsbad 5000 Photos as captured by the Runnerazzi visit our Facebook galleries below.
