Kenyans top finishers in Cleveland marathon

CLEVELAND (AP) — Kenyan Philemon Terer has won the Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon in 2 hours, 17 minutes, 37 seconds.

Another Kenyon, Sarah Kiptoo, won Sunday’s women’s race in 2:33:42.

The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer (bit.ly/19QoJsK) says both are represented by Richfield native Scott Robinson, who runs the AmeriKenyan Running Club in Santa Fe, N.M.

Brandon Bauer of New Albany was the top Ohio finisher. He finished in fifth place in 2:28:45.

The race was held under tightened security in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings.
