The OregonLive.com website has reported that a plan is in the works for Jordan Hasay and Tara Erdmann to attempt to meet the qualifying standard for the IAAF World Championships women’s 10,000 meters.

The website reported that the Portland Track Festival will stage the event on July 17. Hasay, a University of Oregon graduate and Arroyo Grande native, runs for the Nike Oregon Project. Erdmann is her teammate.

Hasay and Erdmann finished 2-3 in the women’s 10,000 at the USA Championships last week and will compete in the World Championships in Moscow in August if they reach the qualifying standard.

Neither has the “A” or “B” standard. The “A” standard is 31 minutes, 45 seconds. The “B” mark is 32:05. Hasay’s best is the 32:06.84 she ran at the Payton Jordan Invitational at Stanford University last spring.

If both runners make the “A” standard, or one reaches the “A” and the other the “B”, both would make the team. The OregonLive website stated that PTF meet director Craig Rice said he is in the process of getting the event sanctioned by USA Track and Field and the IAAF, and making sure he has the appropriate officials.

Rice told the website that the event is tentatively set for 9:15 p.m. and would likely be held at Portland Roosevelt High School. Rice told the website that if conditions weren’t optimal, the race could be re-scheduled for July 19.
