Pittsburgh Marathon Results: Jeffrey Eggleston, Yihunlish Bekele Delelecha Are Winners

The results are in for Sunday morning’s Pittsburgh Marathon. The men’s winner, with an unofficial time of two hours, 16 minutes and 40 seconds, was Jeffrey Eggleston, who actually was a pacer for the event. Eggleston was supposed to run the race at the Olympic qualifying time of two hours and 19 minutes, but it seems no one could keep up with him.

Yihunlish Bekele Delelecha, from Ethiopia, was the women’s winner, with a time of two hours, 35 minutes and 34 seconds. The women’s Olympic “A” qualifying time was two hours and 39 minutes.

Nicholas Kurgat, from Kenya, won the men’s half marathon with a time of one hour, three minutes and three seconds, besting the course record by more than two minutes.

Malika Mejdoub, from Morocco, won the women’s half marathon at one hour, 14 minutes and 28 seconds.

For most runners and walkers, the race, which began at 7:00 AM, is still concluding near Heinz Field and PNC Park.
