One of 6500 runners passes Killian Court on Monday. The 23rd Tufts Health Plan 10K race shut down Memorial Drive from the Longfellow Bridge to the BU Bridge shortly after noon. The race started and finished at Boston Common. Libby Hickman of Fort Collins, Colorado defended her USA 10K championship reign by fending off Colleen DeReuck of South Africa (who finished 4th at the 1999 Boston Marathon) in the last moments of the race.
