Last weekend was the Rock ‘n’ Roll Philadelphia Half Marathon, featuring Dathan Ritzenhein, and, like this horrible golfer, I missed it.
But Heps did well, so I consider it better late than never. On the men’s side, two recent Leaguers — 2011 Heps XC champion Ethan Shaw (Dartmouth) and Brendan Martin (Columbia) — finished 16th and 17th. Both were representing Hansons Brooks and Shaw finished 13.1 miles in 1:05:56, eight seconds in front of Martin.
On the women’s side, three top 25 finishers came from Heps, led by Princeton graduate Emily Kroshus, who was ninth in 1:16:07. Another Tiger, Sarah Cummings, was 19th (1:19:00) followed less than a minute later by Yalie Lindsay Donaldson in 22nd.
Winners on the day were Stanley Biwott for the men and Sharon Cherop for the women.
