by Clay Shaw

Baltimore, MD, September 3, 2021—Ryan Fan of Baltimore, representing the Baltimore Teachers Union, sped to victory in 1:07:16.  Suzie Jakes of White Hall, MD ran a strong race, finishing in 1:09:49 with only the three podium men ahead of her.

The race starts in Towson, MD and finishes at the Under Armour headquarters on Hull Street, and it runs on Charles Street most of the time.  Baltimore has not had many races since early 2020. It was good to see an event in the city and 952 finishers.

Chasing Fan were Daniel Rowe of Baltimore who finished second in 1:08:12 and Arjun Mishra of Venetia, PA who was third in 1:09:42.  Venetia is south of Pittsburgh, in case you were wondering. Michael Mbagu of Baltimore was top master in 1:13:38.

Meaghan Murray of Baltimore, a 2:56 marathoner, was second in 1:13:29.  Natalie Atabek of Baltimore was third in 1:13:44. Atabek was the 2019 Baltimore Marathon women’s champion. Nicky Tamberrino of Monkton, MD was top master and seventh overall in 1:15:12.
