English term or phrase:to crop
A runner speaks of being unable to crop or tire another.
Explanation: I'll admit I do not know this expression, but the verb crop does mean "cut off" (interfere with the progress of), so it could fit here, as I have heard of runners who cut off their opponents on the track...
And as for tire, perhaps simply to cause an opponent to "become weak or exhausted from exertion". This is a tactic used in the link below, although it does refer to cycling.
