Less than a week after the second-deadliest tornado outbreak in U.S. history killed one person in Kentucky, runners were treated to perfect weather conditions for the 2011 Derby Festival Marathon and miniMarathon: temperature a little bit above 50°F and nothing but blue sky.
Top finishers for men and women were reported by The Courier-Journal.
Asnake Fekadu won the Derby Festival miniMarathon in 1:04:35. Alemtsehay Misganaw was the female winner in 1:15.11. In the marthon, Peter Kemboi was the champion in 2:24:59 with Veronika Lopatina as the top woman finisher (2:41:24).
