Hall, Ndereba win Philadelphia Distance Run – Results

PHILADELPHIA — Ryan Hall outdueled three Kenyan runners on Sunday to become the first American-born runner to win the Philadelphia Distance Run since 1986.

The top-ranked U.S. marathoner broke away from Sammy Ndereba, Benjamin Limo and Valentine Orare with about a mile to go in the 13.1-mile race and hit the finish line in 1 hour, 1 minute, 52 seconds.

The California-based Hall fell short of breaking his American record of 59:43, but said it was a good tuneup for the New York City Marathon on Nov. 1.

Catherine Ndereba, the sister of Sammy Ndereba, won her seventh women’s title but first since 2002. She finished in 1:09.43 to beat compatriot Irene Limika by 3 seconds.
