Cristine Torek, public relations specialist working for the Cleveland Marathon, said the 22-year-old soccer player with multiple letters for her athleticism at Walsh nearly finished the race on an unseasonably hot day. Other runners frequently attempted the longer full or half marathon and settled, instead, for the shorter 10K.
About 15,000 runners participated in the Cleveland Marathon, a charitable race that strives to provide “a fitness experience for all individuals who want to participate regardless of their abilities.”
Participants were told they could run or walk as the temperatures reached into the 80s.
