Californian claims his first national championship.

Sergio Reyes of Palmdale, California won his first national road racing title on Sunday, crossing the finish line of the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon in a personal best 2:14:02 to claim the 2010 USA Men’s Marathon Championship. New York City’s Jeff Eggleston finished just seven seconds behind Reyes to place second, while Fernando Cabada, who won this event in 2008, took third in 2:15:25.

Reyes, whose previous personal best of 2:15:30 was set at last October’s Chicago Marathon, took home $25,000 for the victory, by far his biggest payday on the professional circuit. Eggelston, running in his second marathon, walked away with a 21-second personal best and $15,000 for second place. Cabada, who improved upon the 2:16:32 he ran here in 2008, won $10,000 for his efforts.
