The decay of neutron-rich isotope 113Ru obtained as on-line mass separated product of proton-induced fission has been investigated by $\gamma\gamma$ coincidence and spectrum multiscaling measurements. Decay schemes for both low- and high-spin isomers of 113Ru have been constructed. The level scheme of 113Rh is considerably extended. Systematics of the lowest-lying rhodium levels is smooth. The picture of shape coexistence established for neutron-rich Rh isotopes near-neutron midshell is confirmed with the observation of a K=1/2 deformed band, with its 3/2 + state at 600 keV being the lowest-lying level and of probable 7/2 + and 5/2 + band members. A large fraction of $\beta$ feeding is found to populate high-lying levels in 113Rh. The GT strength in 113Ru $^{\rm m}$ decay is significantly larger than for the decay of 113Ru $_{\rm g}$ and of lighter rhodium isotopes.
