MINOT, N.D. – A Minot runner will get her shot at qualifying for the 2020 Summer Olympic games in Tokyo.

Val Curtis qualified for the women’s marathon trials.

Curtis says she is one of a couple hundred women who qualified for the trials, and the top three finishers represent the United States in the Olympics.

She says she’ll try to run the course strategically to her advantage.

We’ll hear more from Curtis Thursday as she gets ready for the trials.
