Three of the four fastest runners in Saturday's 8 Tuff Miles race hailed from the Cincinnati area and a running club there
The winner was Derrick Butler, from the Ohio group, who finished in 46 minutes 22 seconds, a hair off the record pace of 46 minutes set last year's winner and teammate Christopher Reis. He finished second this year.
St. John's hometown hero, Jeremy Zuber, came in third, same as last year. His time was 51:26, 38 seconds slower than last year.
Court Lilly, also from the Cincinnati club, was fourth overall. He was one of about 20 Ohio club members participating in the 16th annual running of the race
