York, PA, May 15, 2022—Cem Aslan of Camp Hill, 45, won the York Marathon in 2:45:17. Aslan ran with Jessop Keene of Alexandria, VA for the first half of the race, well ahead of the rest of the field. In warm and humid conditions, Aslan ran a negative split on his way to the 2022 win. Keene was second in 2:51:37.
Scott Roth and Jeremy Matula, both of Lancaster and F & M Track Club teammates, ran together. Roth took third in 2:53:21 and Mutula was fourth in 2:53:47. Matula was pacing Roth to hopefully get a Boston qualifier (yep, that worked out). Scott Moore of Westminster, MD was fifth and second master in 2:55:28. Moore was running in third for 25 miles, and then was passed by the F & M guys. Jake Menchey of York ran 2:56:37 in his first marathon, the day after graduation from York College.
Kara Phelps of Lewisburg, PA won the marathon in 3:04:16. After an early, early wake-up and a two-hour drive, she discovered she forgot her running shoes. Patti Stirk came to the rescue with a stockpile of same-size running shoes and living a block away from the start line. Mary Fuller of Camp Hill was second in 3:10:28. Talli Ni of New York, NY was third in 3:14:45. Kim Hunger of Palm Bay, FL was fourth and top master in 3:20:25. Courtney Woodfield of Newtown, PA was fifth in 3:21:21.
Kudos to Kelly McKinley of York on her 50th marathon; she placed 23rd woman in 3:52:14.
63-year-old Bhasler Sharma came the farthest, from Bangalore, India. He ran 4:27:33.
75-year-old Ronnie Wong of Catonsville, MD ram 5:24:25. He has over 350 marathon finishes.
227 total finished the 2022 York Marathon. Half Marathon on RG is next!
