2012 Dallas Marathon results: Vladimir Safranov and Natassia Padalinskaya take men's, women's titles

Vladimir Safranov won the men's title, while Natassia Padalinskaya took first for the women in the 43rd Dallas Marathon.

20,000 runners lined the streets of Dallas on Sunday, and a few hours later, it was Vladimir Safranov of Russia and Natassia Padalinskaya of Belarus who had separated themselves from everyone else.

Safranov won the men's division at the 43rd running of the Dallas Marathon with a time of 2 hours, 19 minutes and 39 seconds. It was his debut marathon, and he earned $5,000 for winning it, plus an additional $1,500 bonus for beating the elite high school relay.

Padalinskaya was the fastest woman to finish. She did so in 2 hours, 43 minutes and 56 seconds.

Andrew Letherby from Australia won the men's half marathon and Ashley Johnson, from Dallas, won the women's. Letherby finished in 1 hour, 9 minutes and 45 seconds, while Johnson completed 13.1 miles in 1 hour, 21 minutes and 36 seconds. Neither Letherby nor Johnson was listed in the half marathon's elite group before the race.

Sunday's race was the first of three in the three-race Texas Marathons series, with the Houston Marathon and Austin Marathon to follow.
