OGDEN — Like all typical marathons, Saturday's 19th annual Ogden Marathon was run over a course of 26.2 miles — not 26 miles, but 26.2.

Figuring that there are roughly eight Ogden city blocks in a mile, Riley Cook took advantage of the final fractions of feet and made his move at the 26-mile mark, two blocks from the finish line at Historic 25th Street and Grant Avenue.

Cook, 38, captured his second consecutive — and third in the last four years — Ogden Marathon with a time of 2:23:41, edging Eliud Kirui of Tooele by 12 seconds in a thrilling trek to the tape.
