A little girl made history this weekend.

Reilly Johnson, 8, won the Dipsea running race on Sunday.

She beat more than 1,400 other runners in the 7.5 mile race from Mill Valley to Stinson Beach.

Even though certain age and gender categories get a head start, Reilly crossed the finish line first, so she is still considered the youngest winner ever in the 100 years The Dipsea Race has been around.
