Cherono and Kosgei, Smash Records at Honolulu Marathon

MBR BEST 100: Both the men’s and women’s course records came tumbling down at the 45th Honolulu Marathon Sunday morning when Lawrence Cherono and Brigid Kosgei broke the finish line tape in Kapiolani Park in 2:08:26 and 2:22:14, respectively. Improbably, the Kenyan duo demolished the previous race records by a combined six minutes and 17 seconds, and each athlete earned $50,000 in prize money and incentive bonuses.
