Sergio Reyes’ run to the finish line of Sunday’s La Jolla Half Marathon was a lonely one. Not only was it the second straight year Reyes won the La Jolla 13.1-mile race, he did it faster than he did in 2011. In fact, it was 20 seconds faster as he finished with a time of one hour, six minutes and 24 seconds.

And nobody was close.

It took nearly four minutes for the next competitor — San Mateo’s Armen

Vartanian — to cross the finish. Hector Hernandez was third with a time of 1:13.59.

For the women, it was Encinitas’ Hilary Corno, who paced the field with a time of 1:24. And just like Reyes, Corno also beat her field by a large margin. The second-place woman was Carlsbad’s Sarah Hart, who ran the race in 1:29.07. San Diego’s Aubrey Bosma was third with a time of 1:31.30.

The top male finisher from La Jolla was 23-year old Trey Van Buskirk, who placed 13th overall with a time of 1:23.26. Ben Horne, also a La Jollan, wasn’t too far off the pace, finishing in 17th place with a time of 1:24.56.

For the women, the top La Jollan was Ashley Estes, who was 33rd overall for the women.

In total, 6,301 runners ran the half marathon Sunday and 6,015 finished the race.

    In your article you state that " 6,301 runners ran the half marathon Sunday and 6,015 finished the race." THAT IS NOT TRUE!! This race discriminates against runners who finish over 3 hours. they only post the times for runners finishing under 3 hours, which is where the 6,015 figure comes from. In reality, there were more finishers.

    I think it is a disgrace not to count those who finished over 3 hours. We worked just as hard and our money went to the charity that was supported! Also, there was a detour in this race which added some small extra distance so the race was really longer than 13.1 miles, so obviously, it would take a bit longer.

  2. Ben Horne is the stoniest coolest runner ever… This guy is my hero! Go Ben!
