2012 Broad Street Run Results, Philadelphia PA 5/6/2012:

Henry Rutto couldn’t have asked for a better debut on U.S. soil. Esther Erb’s second time competing in Philadelphia proved as successful as Rutto’s first.

Together Rutto, the 29-year-old Kenyan, and Erb, a 26-year-old North Carolina resident, were the winners in the elite male and female divisions during Sunday’s 33rd annual Blue Cross Broad Street Run.

On a day with low humidity and weather extremely favorable for running the 10-mile race, the running world was clearly focused on Philadelphia. There were 40,000 who registered for the event, which began at Central High School and ended at the Philadelphia Navy Yard.

Rarely in a race of this length, does somebody win from start to finish, but that was the case with Rutto, whose time of 47 minutes, and six seconds was 1:37 better than runner up Birhanu Feyissa Alemu.

This was Erb’s second straight year competing in the Broad Street Run. Last year she finished fourth. Her winning time of 55.28 was 25 seconds ahead of runner-up Askale Meracki.

The winning times were far from meet records, but still impressive for their decisiveness. The men’s meet record was set in 2007 by Patrick Cheriuyot. His time of 45:14 is the best 10 mile time ever recorded in the U.S., according to meet officials.

The top women’s time in the Broad Street Run of 53:07 was set in 1999 by Catherine Ndereba.
