Mitei, Albera Win 33rd Crim 10 Mile

Huddle women’s USA champion; event record 15,000 plus
entrants

At the 33rd Crim 10 Mile in Flint, Michigan on
Saturday morning, August 22nd, Enock Mitei of Kenya and Alemitu
Albera
of Ethiopia were the class of the field. Mitei, 28, dominated the
men’s race with his 46 minute, 50 second unchallenged victory – 40 seconds ahead
of fellow Kenyan and 2007 Crim champion Festus Langat, while Albera, 23,
held off countrywomen Belainesh Gebre and Teyba Naser, 53:49 to
53:52 and 53:53.

“I used my best effort to win this race,” Mitei told The
Flint Journal. “It was a good temperature for me, because where I am training in
Kenya it is very cool, the same.”

The women’s race also served as the 2009 USA Championship and
reigning USA 7 Mile champion Molly Huddle of Providence, R.I., 24, earned
the national title in 54:01, good for 5th overall, and 2008 Olympic marathon
Magdalena Lewy Boulet of Oakland, Calif. was national runner-up in 54:12
and 6th overall.

With atypical August weather (57 degrees at the start) for
this part of the world, more than 15,000 entered and enjoyed the various Crim
Festival of Races, an event record.
