Enman (Huntington, Vt.) became the first senior U.S. woman to win an individual gold medal at the race, helping Team USA to an overall fourth-place finish. She recorded a time of 40 minutes, 39 seconds over the 8.59 kilometer course.

It was also the first appearance for Enman in the World Mountain Running Championships. She qualified for the event after winning the 2011 USA Mountain Running Championships June 26 in North Conway, N.H.

The B.A.A. Half Marathon begins and ends in Boston’s scenic Franklin Park at 8:30 a.m. on the Sunday of Columbus Day weekend. After leaving the park, the race takes runners along Boston and Brookline’s Emerald Necklace park system on an out-and-back route that puts autumn’s foliage on full display. In addition to the nearly 7,000 runners expected to compete, a field of international athletes will vie for a combined prize purse of $30,000.

Arriving at B.A.A. headquarters minutes before a press roundtable, the Kenyan trio of Mutai, Kilel and Mosop scoped out the historic pieces of memorabilia lining the halls – including some of their own relics from April’s history-making race. Despite the trophies, awards, and old sneakers, there was one piece in particular, just over two months old, which caught their immediate attention. It was the television race replay, which was playing on a screen close by.

This was the first time the three had seen themselves running the streets between Hopkinton and Boston. Soon Gebremariam joined in, and it was as if the four were watching it unfold live.
