FLINT, Mich. (AP) - Kenyan runner Julius Kogo has won the Crim 10-mile race in Flint for the fifth straight year.

Kogo’s unofficial time for Saturday’s race was 46:35.

Kogo tells The Flint Journal (https://bit.ly/1p2Hpfu) it was “very hard to run because so many people are coming to beat me.” But, he added, “I trained for that to make me better.”

The win earned Kogo $5,000.

Aliphine Tuliamuk-Bolton of Kenya, who won last year, was the first woman to finish. Her unofficial time was 54:26.

Spring Arbor resident Nathan Martin was Michigan’s best male finisher at 49:02.

Crim organizers expected more than 15,000 participants for Crim’s various races. It’s the 38th year for the event.
