If you’re anything like us, you were pretty excited about US sprinters Allyson Felix and Janeba Tarmoh’s runoff scheduled for today. So we were bummed to find out that the runoff has been postponed … for now, anyway. But until the race actually happens — if it happens — here are some other venues to satisfy that adrenaline-rushing need for speed displayed on the track … or the streets.
Check out our gallery of the World’s Wackiest Races or read about Extreme Races.
Watch people race in rather unconventional contraptions.
Learn more about Oregon, where the Track and Field Olympic trials are taking place up until today.
Finally, see everything we have on the Olympics in London, from galleries of London’s major attractions to David Beckham’s Guide to Britain.
