And the Winners Are

A record number of runners—12,000—from all 50 states and six nations participated in last weekend’s 2010 Air Force Marathon events at Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio. Capt. Brian Dumm, 27, an Air Force Academy professor, won the full marathon on Sept. 18 with a time of 2:27:49. “To win this on the Air Force’s birthday is pretty cool,” he said. Rebecca Murray, 25, of Franklin, Tenn., was the top female marathon finisher, clocking in at 3:01:07. Adam Rose, 16, of Macomb, Mich., won the men’s full marathon hand crank wheel division (1:33:37), and Joy Koester, 50, of Indianapolis, Ind., won the women’s full marathon in hand crank (2:32:19). Capt. Ben Payne, 29, won the half marathon (1:08:28), while Christina Johnston, 30, of Xenia, Ohio, was the top female half-marathoner (1:18:21). Among the notable finishers, Chief of Staff Gen. Norton Schwartz completed the men’s 10k in 1:00:23. (Wright-Patterson report by Bill Hancock)
