The 29 year-old led a 1-4 Kenyan podium finish as she out kicked her closest rival Monicah Ngige to cut the tape in 50:01 making it her fourth Boilermaker win and to equal her win with Catherine Ndereba who won the title in 1996,1999,2000 and 2001.
Ngige took second place two seconds later as Vicoty Chepngeno closed the first three podium finishes in 50:04.
