FAIRBORN, Ohio (WDTN) – Two Ohio residents took the top spots in the 23rd annual US Air Force Marathon. Several events were held Saturday to celebrate the marathon.
Opening ceremonies kicked things off, and a 10K race was also held. Award presentations followed the race. 13,500 racers participated, coming from all 50 states and 16 foreign countries.
The start of the race was delayed slightly due to rain, but the wet weather did nothing to dampen the spirits of the racers.
Tyrone Williams ran in the 10k race. He says, “Typically we prepare for it. It’s about to be an annual thing for me.”
