Roman-Duval, Redfern Take Top Honors at Baltimore Marathon

By Clay Shaw

BALTIMORE, MD–Jeffrey Redfern of Washington DC took over the lead late in the race, and went on to win the 2018 Baltimore Marathon, held October 20, in a personal best of 2:30:27.  Tyler Muse of Bel Air, MD who led much of the race took second in 2:35:56.  Jeremy Ardanuy of Baltimore was third in 2:40:52.  Michael Wardian of Arlington, VA was 6th overall and first Masters in 2:43:26.

Julia Roman-Duval of Columbia, MD who ran her first marathon in Baltimore in 2013, returned in 2018 as an elite.  Roman-Duval used her hometown marathon as a good training run to attempt the A-standard in Sacramento (she got it!).  Julia won easily in 2:47:43, and was greeted at the finish line by her family.   Dahlia Rohm of Baltimore ran a solid time for second in 2:58:38.  At 21, Rohm looks to have a promising future.  Jaclyn Schuerholz of Baltimore was third in 3:08:59.
