Runner Loses Prestigious 10K By Celebrating Too Early

Today’s world-class Peachtree Road Race came down to a photo finish as American Ben Payne lost out to British former Olympian Scott Overall thanks to a brief celebratory hesitation just shy of the finish line.


Update: Due to some confusion on both our part and that of the television station, we initially stated this was the conclusion of the Peachtree Cup which also featured elite runners; in this case, Payne and Overall were not racing as part of that specific competition.
