Ardmore Man Wins Philadelphia Marathon
Mike McKeeman is a member of Bryn Mawr Running Club.
From the recap on the marathon website:
In the men’s division, local favorite Mike McKeeman was the clear winner, outpacing the second place finisher, Scott MacPherson, by 42 seconds. MacPherson took second in his first-ever marathon competition. McKeeman, with a winning time of 2:17:51, runs locally with Bryn Mawr Running Club, and does most of his training in Philadelphia.
"It is so special to win this marathon in my hometown," said Mike McKeeman. "Knowing every inch of the course helped but what really spurred me to a victory was the crowd which was full of my friends and family."
Russian Irina Mashkantceva paced the women in her first Philadelphia race.
The half-marathon featured about 11,000 finishers, too, according to the marathon website.
