Choosing Boston to make her debut, Jordan Hasay ran 2:23:00 to finish third last year. She set an American women’s debut record by three minutes and recorded the fourth fastest time ever run in the Boston Marathon by an American woman behind Shalane Flanagan, Desiree Linden and Joan Benoit Samuelson. After Boston, Hasay ran the Chicago Marathon and once again finished third, but improved her time to 2:20:57, becoming the second fastest American woman marathoner of all time. Hasay decided to move to the roads after not performing well at the 2016 U.S. Olympic Track Trials and has found her niche. As a junior competitor, she won the silver medal in the 1,500m at the 2007 IAAF World Youth Championships and finished fourth in the 1,500m at the IAAF World Junior Championships in both 2008 and 2010. As a U23 competitor, she won the gold medal at the 2012 NACAC Championships in the 1,500m. At the 2013 IAAF World Championships she placed 12th in the 10,000m. She says her proudest running accomplishment was helping her teammates win the NCAA Division I Cross Country team title for the University of Oregon, where Hasay was an 18-time All-American.
2017: Besides making the podium in both the Boston and Chicago Marathons, Hasay set a half marathon personal best time of 67:55 with her sixth-place finish at the Prague Half Marathon. During the race she set a 15K personal best of 48:21 and a 20K personal best of 64:32. She also won the U.S. national titles in the 20K, 10 Mile and 15K, and finished third at the Philadelphia Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon in 70:42 and fourth at the Houston Half Marathon in 68:40.
2018: Hasay ran the Houston Half Marathon and finished eighth in 68:38.
Hasay has been running since she was 12 years old and grew up in Arroyo Grande, California. She attended Mission College Preparatory Catholic High School, where she was a two-time Foot Locker Cross Country National Champion, set nine national high school records and competed in the 2008 U.S. Olympic Trials 1,500m. The valedictorian of her high school class, Hasay graduated from the University of Oregon with a degree in Business Administration. She runs for the Nike Oregon Project and is coached by 1982 Boston Marathon winner Alberto Salazar.
