For the first time in 35 years we've got a new course record at the Cotton Row Run. 

Kenyan Linus Kiplagat bested the previous record of 29:10, set by John Wellerding back in 1983, with a time of 28:36 to claim the elusive $5,000 prize for breaking the longstanding record. 

On the ladies side, his teammate, Margret Wamahiga also took home top honors in the 10k with a time of 34:18.
