2011 winner takes 1st in Kzoo Marathon


KALAMAZOO, Mich. (WOOD) — More than 8,000 runners participated in the Kalamazoo Marathon Sunday morning.

The marathon began at 8 a.m. on the east side of Kalamazoo. It closed parts of Michigan Avenue, Riverview Drive, Gull Road, Parkview Avenue and a few other streets as thousands of runners ran the course.

Brian Reynolds, who won the marathon in 2011, also took first place in this year’s race.

“I really like the community involvement in this race. I know a lot of people that run it and I love the fact that everyone comes to support this race. Tons of companies sponsor this race, and I think the biggest thing is the running community in Kalamazoo is very strong,” said Reynolds.
