In the men’s contest, 2021 NCAA Indoor 5000m champion Kiptoo made a winning start to his professional road racing career after crossing the finish line in 1:01:26 to hold off compatriot James Ngandu, who ran 1:01:28 for second.

“Today, I raced my first half marathon at the @pghmarathon And I won! I am very pleased with my time of 1:01:25,” Kiptoo, the HOKA Northern Arizona Elite representative, said on his official Twitter account.

“Thanks to the race organizers for giving us the opportunity to race today. Thanks to @hoka@naz_elite and @hawimanagement for all their support.”

Kiptoo, who only recently signed with HOKA NAZ Elite and forgo his final season of collegiate eligibility with Iowa State University, was building on his 13:34.93 third-place performance over 5000m at the 2022 Mt. Sac Relays last month.

USA’s Jared Ward ran 1:03:38 for third place, finishing ahead of Lawi Lalang (1:03:44) and Aidan Reed (1:05:12) in rounding out the top five.

The women’s race went to 2015 Boston Marathon champion Rotich, who clocked 1:09:31 for first place, beating Kenyan-born American runner Aliphine Chepkerker Tuliamuk (1:09:56) and another U.S. runner Sarah Sellers (1:11:53).
