DENVER -- A Denver woman set a course record for female runners in the Colfax Marathon on Sunday.

Brittney Lee shattered the course record by about 4 1/2 minutes. Her time was 2 hours, 52 minutes, 50 seconds.

The previous record of 2:57:18 was set in 2013 by Nicole Chyr, a four-time Colfax Marathon winner.

That's an average pace of about 6:36 per mile. Lee was awarded a check for $1,000 after the 26.2-mile race.

"Just a little faster than our team," joked Channel 2's Deb Takahara, who ran the relay with FOX31 Denver reporter Greg Nieto, photojournalist Cody White, and producers Dara Bitler and Gerard Carleton.
