Kenyan Monicah Ngige took the victory honors at the B.A.A. 5K women’s clocking 15:16
The women’s title went to Kenyan Monicah Ngige, who earned her second road win in as many weeks after claiming the Cooper River Bridge Run in South Carolina last week.
Though Ngige trailed Violah Lagat by 20 meters at the two-mile mark (9:41 for Lagat), she made up that deficit and then some over the final 1.1 miles, coasting to victory in 15:16, 13 seconds ahead of runner-up Lagat.
Two-time Olympian Kim Conley finished as the top American in fourth, running 15:36.
