Run it at your own risk

YH 10-Miler still a draw for the die-hards

(Continued)

In similar fashion to the Boston Marathon, the most competitive runners who compete for prize money sometimes withdraw a few miles into the 10-mile race once they’ve determined that they are not in position to win in order to save their bodies for other events. Last year, 42 runners completed the 10-mile course in less than an hour. On the other hand, 126 runners posted times slower than one hour and 45 minutes.

“It begins to feel like you’re out there for a while if you’re having a difficult night,” Hennigar said. “I don’t do it any more for that reason. It can be a horror.”
