New York Mini 10K (women only)

The great Mary Keitany of Kenya was in a class by herself at the Oakley New York Mini 10K (women only) in New York’s Central Park, Sat., June 13, as she led from gun to finish to win by a minute and 15 seconds in a superb 31:15 … on a hot day no less!

The 5’2”, 93-pound Keitany, who’s 33 and has a glorious list of running accomplishments (including second fastest ever in the half-marathon, 1:05:50, and third fastest ever in the marathon, 2:18:37), set a torrid pace from the beginning on Saturday.

She had a 15-second gap on the field at five kilometers, then her lead just grew all the way to the finish line as the pace and the heat took their toll on her pursuers.

Her impressive victory led a Kenyan sweep of the top three positions in New York as Betsy Saina, 26, finished second in 32:30, and the veteran Edna Kiplagat, 35, was third in 32:39.

Diane Nukuri, 30, of Burundi finished fourth in 32:47, Etaferahu Temesgen, 25, of Ethiopia was fifth in 32:50, and Brianne Nelson, 34, of Golden, Colo., sixth in 33:07, the first American.

This race, now in its 44th year and commonly promoted as “A Celebration of Women in Running,” was particularly tough on the nearly 8000 competitors this year due to a combination of heat, humidity and wind. The temperature was nearly 80 degrees with 56 percent humidity and 10 mile-per-hour winds.

“It was hot, very hot,” Keitany said, wiping sweat from her brow, after the finish in Central Park, although she obviously handled the heat well.

The runner-up, Betsy Saina, who had never raced a 10K in Central Park before, explained that due to the heat the second 5K was harder than the first.

 “It was challenging,” Saina said, but she added, “It was an honor to run with these women. And the crowds helped a lot.”

As the first-ever road race exclusively for female participants, the “Mini” has a loyal cadre of followers who feel an almost religious devotion to an event that has come to symbolize the journey of women’s running from obscurity to dominance.
