Quad Cities Marathon sees record number of runners
MOLINE (AP) — A record-breaking number of runners ran in the 15th anniversary of the Quad Cities Marathon in downtown Moline.
The Dispatch in Moline reports (http://bit.ly/Uql2Cb ) that 5,587 runners ran the two-state, four-city marathon on Sunday, exceeding the event's previous record of 4,831 runners set in 2010.
Marathon officials say the nail-biting race between Philip Lagat of Kenya and Demesse Tefera of Ethiopia also set a record for the closest finish in the history of the men's 26.2-mile race.
