Kenyan runner Julius Kogo has won the Crim 10-mile race in Flint for the third straight year.

Kogo's unofficial time for Saturday's race was 46:45. That's his fastest time yet with a pace of 4:40 per mile.

Kogo tells The Flint Journal (http://bit.ly/PPFLjC) he came to defend his title and ran a "very good" race.

The 26-year-old became the fourth man to repeat as the 10-mile champion last year, finishing in 47:15. In 2010, Kogo crossed the finish line in 47:06.

He says he'll defend his title again next year.

The win earned Kogo $5,000. He beat out nearly 10,000 runners.

Caroline Rotich of Kenya was the first woman to finish. Her unofficial time was 53:44.

Rochester Hills native Mike Morgan was Michigan's best male finisher.
