Tufts health plan 10k for women

Kenya’s Hellen Jemutai dominates Tufts 10K

Kenyan Hellen Jemutai dominated the Tufts Health Plan 10K for Women on Monday, sprinting into the lead at the start and staying there. Jemutai looked impressively fresh as she crossed the line in 32 minutes 29.8 seconds, especially since she finished third in the BAA Half Marathon on Sunday.

After the hilly terrain of the half marathon, Jemutai said the Tufts 10K “felt good because the course was really flat, not like [Sunday].” While surprised to find herself all alone as the course wound its way along the Charles River in Cambridge and through the Back Bay, Jemutai credited good preparation for her ability to win the second of back-to-back races.
