Mott and Horst win the "short" bout on Tallahassee's Marathon Day ticket

Generally, a half-marathon, being 13.1-miles long, is not going to be regarded as "the short race." But when it's paired with a marathon, like the Tallahassee Marathon, the half-marathon is indeed perceived as short.

While 234 runners worked their way through the 37th annual Tallahassee Marathon on Sunday, 6 February 2011, another 600 were enjoying the "short" race, the half marathon. St. Pete's Jonathan Mott ran 70:10 for the win, beating runner-up Chris Lake to the finish line by over three minutes. Tallahassee's Lake clocked 73:13. Next in was the top woman finisher, Jill Horst of Rome, Georgia. Horst covered the course in 81:58, well ahead of the second woman, Tallahassee schoolteacher Lisa Johnson (8th, 84:56).

Tallahassee's Sean Hudson was the fastest master in the race, placing seventh overall in 84:43. Mickey Moore, the second master finisher, was tenth in 86:26. Jane Johnson (23rd, 92:57) of Tallahassee was the first woman master, beating out Thomasville's Mary Anne Grayson (34th, 97:01) for the honor.
