Running across their home county, four Summit County locals earned top-3 spots at Saturday’s Breckenridge Road Marathon races.
In the 10-kilometer event, Dillon 54-year-old John Borthwick completed the course in 41 minutes and 40 seconds, 42 seconds ahead of second-place finisher Jonathan Risi, 49, of Highlands Ranch (42:22).
A little more than two minutes off that pace was third-place 10K finisher Steve DiSerio, 40, of Breckenridge, who ran to a time of 44:33.
In the half-marathon race, Frisco 43-year-old Eric Broecker crossed the finish line in 01:20:09, which was more than nine minutes ahead of second-place finisher Leah Rosenfeld, 30, of Flagstaff, Arizona (01:29:20).
And in the full marathon event, the top local finisher was Breckenridge’s 29-year-old Andrew Dengate. Dengate finished his 26.2-mile journey in 03:42:24, which was the top male time in the marathon, 55 seconds ahead of Fort Collins 33-year-old Billy McDonald (02:43:29).
Dengate won his marathon age division by more than 20 minutes. The overall winner of Saturday’s marathon was Littleton’s 28-year-old Nicole Marsh (03:26:46), who ran to a time nearly 40 minutes faster than any other female marathon competitor.
The full 26.25 mile-long marathon course required runners to ascend 1,609-feet of overall elevation gain, with a starting elevation of 10.479-feet and a maximum elevation of 10,489-feet. The half marathon covered 13.33 miles and gained 595 feet, while the 6.13-mile 10K climbed a total of 295 feet.
Next year’s Breck Road Marathon event is scheduled for Sept. 14.
