Laszlo Tabori seemed a little embarrassed when asked if he could have foreseen that Jacqueline Hansen would become one of this country's premier distance runners after he began coaching her in the fall of 1970. "Quite honestly, no," he said. Less than 3 years later, Hansen won the Boston Marathon. Twice, she set world marathon records, in 1975 becoming the first woman to run the 26.2-mile race faster than 2 hours 40 minutes.

Jacqueline Hansen had just returned from conducting a running camp at the Mammoth Athletic Club Monday when she received a call at her Topanga Canyon home from Anne Phillips, the Pomona-Pitzer College coach who is in charge of the West team at the U.S. Olympic Festival. Because of an injury to one of the women who was supposed to compete here, Phillips explained, the West needed another runner for the half-marathon (13.1 miles).

It's only the warm-up to the big event, but today's 11th annual Redondo Beach Super Bowl 10K run takes pride in its party-before-the-party reputation. The race, which drew 15,000 runners last year, features two world-class runners in the men's race. Steve Cram of Great Britain, the world-record holder in the mile, said he will approach the race as a training run. Also entered is Alejandro Cruz of Mexico, who was the surprise winner of the Chicago Marathon last fall.

It has been called the largest pregame party this side of Miami. It could be called the Doo Dah of foot races. But it is best known as the Redondo Beach Super Bowl Sunday 10K Run and Fitness Expo. Everyone from the serious runner to the serious partier will feel a part of this event. There are no age restrictions, costumes are encouraged, and there's $4,600 to be won--but set your alarm. The party begins at dawn.

In the hush of a Sunday morning, worshipers at the First Baptist Church bow their heads to pray for an ailing member, Kathy Ormsby. When they first heard that she'd jumped off that bridge, they opened the church 30 minutes early to pray for her. Members of other area churches asked their ministers to include prayers for her, too. It was all they knew to do.

In 1955, Laszlo Tabori became the third man to break the four-minute barrier in the mile. A year later, he competed in the Melbourne Olympics, where he finished fourth in the 1,500 meters and sixth in the 500 meters. For a period during the 1950s, Tabori held the world record in the 1,500 meters. More than 30 years later, Tabori--at 56--is still running, and inspiring others to do the same.

In glamour and size, the Western Hemisphere Marathon in Culver City hardly approaches the magnitude of the Los Angeles Marathon. But not even L.A., which has grown into one of the world's largest marathons, can match the legacy or tradition of the Western Hemisphere Marathon. The 26-mile 385-yard footrace held the first week of December celebrated its 45th anniversary last month. It is the second-oldest consecutively run marathon behind the 96-year-old Boston Marathon.

A year ago, Tatyana Pozdnyakova won the women's division of the Los Angeles Marathon in 2 hours 29 minutes 40 seconds -- an outstanding time for someone about to turn 48. Pozdnyakova is believed to be the oldest winner, male or female, of any big-city marathon. In addition to prize money, her triumph brought her a measure of fame and focused attention on a fast-growing segment of competitive runners: women 40 and older.
