Kenyan Julius Kogo takes overall crown at Crim 10 Mile Road Race.

Fasil Bizuneh, a New Balance athlete who trains with Greg McMillan’s Team USA-Arizona group in Flagstaff, won the U.S. 10-mile national championship on Saturday in Flint, Michigan, finishing fourth overall in 47:29 behind a trio of Kenyans.

Bizuneh’s time was the fastest run at Crim by an American since Ed Eyestone’s 47:06 fifth-place finish in 1989. Bizuneh, who beat Team USA-Minnesota’s Antonio Vega by 14 seconds to claim the national championship, won $7,000 in U.S.-only prize money for his efforts.

The overall race was won by Kenya’s Julius Kogo, who broke the tape in 47:06. He was followed across the line by his countrymen, Robert Letting (47:15) and Kiprotich Kirui (47:24).
