Winners were crowned after runners gathered in Davenport for the 2019 Bix 7.

DAVENPORT, Iowa -- The race is over and the winners of the 2019 Quad City Times Bix 7 Road Race have been crowned.

Thousands of runners hit the Davenport streets in the morning of Saturday, July 27th, but only a few could take home the victory in the 7-mile race.

In the men's race, Kenyan runner Leonard Barsoton broke a tight race and soared ahead to win with a time of 32:34. The women's race saw Joyciline Jepkosgei, also from Kenya, break a close two-person competition late in the game to take the gold in just over 36 minutes.
