The NYRR Team Championships have provided the ultimate showcase of both competition and camaraderie in Central Park since 1982. Nowhere was that more apparent than in today's women's race.
The competition was fierce at the front of the pack, as West Side Runners teammates Aziza Aliyu, 27, and Tigist Tufa Demisse, 26, battled for the title. Aliyu won by just three seconds in a time of 26:36, and both women bested the previous course record.
