A 22-year-old participant in the Cleveland Marathon died Sunday after collapsing near the finish line. The cause of death for the runner, Taylor Ceepo, was not immediately known.
According to the Akron Beacon Journal, Ceepo was a quarter-mile from the finish line when she collapsed around midday. Temperatures in Cleveland were in the 80s on Sunday. A spokesman for the hospital to which Ceepo was taken told Cleveland.com that she was dead on arrival. He said he could not divulge any symptoms she may be exhibiting. Ceepo was a recent graduate of Walsh University, about an hour's drive south of Cleveland in Canton, Ohio, where she played on the soccer team.
