Scenes from The White Rock, the Classiest Marathon in Town

The running of this year's White Rock Marathon, as in past years, was rich with stories of inspiration, endurance, and, um, weather.

But here at Unfair Park we're much more interested in the real story: the balloon-breasted, the beer-swilling, and the folks dressed like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or pieces of fruit.

Congratulations to all who ran the Rock, especially Kenyans Edward Tabut (2:16:53) and Rose Jebet (2:48:21) who cruised through the finish line ahead of everyone else. Now on to the costumes and signs, in our slide show from photographer Caity Colvard.
