New course record takes takes 29 seconds off previous best, Brazilian men take top three spots. American Chris Kwiatkowski is fourth. - ARLINGTON, Va. (October 20, 2013) – Kerri Gallagher may have had the shortest trip from her new place in Rosslyn, Va., to the starting line of the 29th running of the Army Ten Miler. It’s a very short walk.
But there is no disputing that the 24-year-old spent the shortest time out there on the 10-mile course of all the 12,070 women who finished the race this morning, a scorching 54 minutes, 56 seconds. Or that she spent the shortest time covering the course than any other woman in the race’s long history, crushing Samia Akbar’s previous record of 55:25 set in 2009.
