Despite dreary weather, more than 250 people finished the Jackson Hole Half Marathon on Saturday.

Matt Chorney, a Jackson High School cross-country and track and field coach, took the overall title in 1 hour, 17 minutes and 14 seconds. He finished the 13.1-mile race with an average 5:54 mile.

“It was fun; it’s just a fun local half,” he said. “It’s fun to race on the bike path you’ve been running on the past 12 months.”

For Chorney, who has eyes on races throughout the coming months, the annual half marathon is almost like a kickoff for the summer racing series.

Fellow Jacksonite Chris Talevi finished second, crossing the line in 1:22:46. Jackson’s Mike DiPrisco was third in 1:26:49.

On the women’s side, South Carolina’s Mimi Marshall took the title in 1:36:38. Minnesota’s Kathryn Heffron finished second in 1:37:17, and Victor, Idaho’s Nicki Kinney came in third in 1:37:22.
