Staten Island Draws 3,600

It was hot in Chicago and hot over on Staten Island, which attracted more than 3,600 runners in the year's final Half Marathon Grand Prix entry. Some Brooklyn performances of note:

* Taylor Delhagen, 23, of Brooklyn Road Runners finished fourth overall, and took top honors for Brooklyn with a 1:12:34.

* Beth St. John, 26, led the way for Brooklyn women, putting in a 1:26:02, good enough for second female. Sarah Foster, Emily Sanderson, Helen Dole and Sarah Scott also finished in the top 12, the last three members of the Prospect Park Track Club.

*Ezekiel Usher, 52, won his age group with a 1:25:39. Will Abrams, 51, finished just behind him with a 1:26:03, the top performance by a PPTC runner.
