MANCHESTER, Conn — Connor Mantz won the 86th Manchester Road Race in record time.
The 25-year-old from Provo, Utah won the race with a time of 21:04, beating the record set more than four years ago.
In the women’s race, 25-year-old Weini Kelati defended her record-breaking 2021 title, handily winning her second Manchester Road Race with a time of 23:39. She was named Queen of the Hill.
Wesley Kiptoo, 23 from Kenya, won King of the Hill, which has a $1,000 prize. He finished the race in third place.
The Manchester Road Race was first run in 1927. Due to the Great Depression and World War II, it was not run from 1935 to 1944. Two years ago, the race was run virtually because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The length of the course is 4.748 miles.
Over 10,000 runners were registered for this year's race. It is the final year for longtime race director Jim Balcome, who, with his team, built the race into a world-class event.
