Philadelphia, PA, April 30, 2923, Independence Blue Cross Broad Street Run 10-Miler—Cynthia Limo of Kenya took off from the 5-woman lead group in the Temple University area and went on to set a new Broad Street Run record of 50:56. Limo took 68 seconds off the old record. The 43rd Broad Street 10-Mile Run finished between the Sixers arena and the Eagles Stadium.

Amber Zimmerman of Philadelphia was second and top American in 52:16. Sarah Naibei of Kenya, the 2022 champ, was third in 52:26. Weynshet Weldetsadik of Ethiopia was fifth in 53:24. Mercy Chepkurui of Kenya was fifth in 53:42. Julie Roman-Duval of Columbia, MD was the top master in 57:33, placing twentieth.

Raymond Magut and Panuel Mkungo, both of Kenya, broke away from a 7-man pack near the halfway point. Going around City Hall, Magut took off and left Mkungo. Magut went on to win in 45:14, which tied the course record of Patrick Cheruiyot set in 2007. Aidan Reed of Boulder, CO was third and top American in 46:02. James Ngandu of Kenya was fourth in 46:30. Shadrack Keter of Kenya was fifth in 46:48. Sergio Reyes of Palmdale, CA was tenth and top master in 48:31.

27,733 runners finished the 10 Miler. Other than the first few elites, most of the runners had to endure heavy rain. 58 non-binary athletes finished. Cain Leathers of Philadelphia was the top non-binary in 53:32. Tony Nogueira of Glen Ridge, NJ was the top wheelchair competitor in 39:44. Emelia Perry of Philadelphia was top wheelchair woman in 40:30. Your photographers took off quickly to avoid camera damage; we did, however, get soaked and left South Philly in record time.

  1. why can’t you publish “senior” times??


    • Hi Jay! Thanks for your interest in RG!! As you’ve seen, we generally print only a short list of actual results, as races have full results on their websites. We mention newsworthy results of athletes of any ages and print photos if we have them. We also publish featured stories by and about seniors.
