Bryan Morseman

Half-Marathon-Leah Anne Wirfel-

Bryan Morseman--Marathon Winnner

Hometown--Addison, NY, now living in Bath, NY

If 35 career victories in 55 marathons is any indication, Bryan Morseman has mastered the art of winning the 26.2-mile race.

A native of Addison, who now resides in Bath, the 30-year-old Morseman now appears to be setting the bar a notch higher.

Morseman is now focused on the U.S. Olympic trials in 2020. He needs to chop at least six seconds off his personal-best time of 2:24 in the marathon to potentially qualify for a spot on the U.S. Olympic team.
