Two Creek Road Runners celebrated milestones in this year’s Philadelphia Marathon, which took place on Sunday, November 20.
CRR Andrew Weber, one of Newark’s best runners, ran a new PR in the race, clocking in with a chip-timed 2:56:56. He finished an impressive 31st among the 612 competitors in the 40-44s and 341st overall among 8,420 finishers.
Among the women, CRR Diane Kukich completed what has been a banner year for her by running her first-ever marathon. At age 70, Kukich added yet another Delaware state age-group record to her collection, finishing 3rd in the 70-74 age group in 4:58:36 (chip time) and obliterating the previous Delaware record by 48 minutes! Kukich currently owns state age-group bests in the 5K, 10K, 15K, marathon (all in 2022), and the 5 mile (set in 2017).
Wow! Congratulations to both runners.
