Holly Brooks edges out Christy Marvin for Mt. Marathon win

By KTVA CBS 11 News 12:46 PM July 4, 2014
SEWARD –

Olympian Holly Brooks edged out the 2013 Mt. Marathon Women’s Race winner, Christy Marvin, by only two seconds to capture the 2014 title.

Brooks, who won the women’s race in 2012 with a time of 51:53, finished this year’s race with a time of 52:49, while Marvin finished with a time of 52:51. Minutes separated Brooks and Marvin from the rest of the field. Anchorage resident Najeeby Quinn finished third, with a time of 56:17.

The high temperatures were an issue for some racers, including Brooks. She crossed the finish line and then collapsed from the heat and dehydration. It got up to 70 degrees for the men’s race and was around 65 during the women’s.
