USA Nyantika, Temesgen Win Kentucky Derby Festival

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - (April 27, 2013) - Overcast skies and cool temps made for near ideal running conditions for the Kentucky Derby Festival Marathon and miniMarathon presented by Walmart and HumanaVitality. More than 16,000 runners were registered to participate in the Saturday morning road races. 2013 marked the 40th miniMarathon and 12th Marathon.

A moment of silence was held at the start of today's races, in honor of the victims in Boston. In special tribute, hundreds of blue and yellow balloons (the signature colors of the storied Boston Marathon) lined the finish line, and many of the runners wore blue and yellow ribbons on their race bibs.

In the miniMarathon, Kenyan Pius Nyantika of Louisville, KY won the men's race with a time of 1 hour, 3 minutes, 16 seconds, while Ethiopian Etaferahu Temesgen of Silver Spring, MD was the women's champion in 1:15:37.

The Marathon winners were Ethiopian Getachew Asfaw (2:19:50) and Louisville's Meghan Shagena (2:58:45).

Since 1956, the Derby Festival has worked to bring the community together in celebration. The Festival is an independent community organization supported by 4,000 volunteers, 400 businesses and civic groups, Pegasus Pin sponsorships and event participation. This involvement has made the Festival the largest single attended event in Kentucky and one of the leading community celebrations in the world.
