KIPTUM BREAKS COURSE RECORD AT DAEGU MARATHON in 2018

Abraham Kiptum and Janet Rono may have had the fastest PBs of the respective men’s and women’s fields at the Daegu International Marathon, the Kenyan duo took the tophonors with Kiptum chopping 22 seconds off the course record and Rono securing her first marathon victory since 2014.

In the men’s race, the nine leading athletes were still together as they reached 15kilometers in 44:08 – just a shade outside 2:04 marathon pace – having passed fivekilometers in 14:50 and 10 kilometres in 29:28.

Ethiopia’s Weldu Negash Gebretsadik was the first of those to fade and he trailed the remaining eight leaders by 15 seconds at 20 kilometers, which was passed in 59:16.

With the pace gradually dropping as the race went on, the lead pack stuck together for another 10 kilometres before it started to fragment. Kenya’s Mike Boit, Jacob Kendagor and Reuben Kerio dropped off the pack, as did Morocco’s El Mahjoub Dazza. At 35kilometers – reached in 1:44:31, 2:06:00 pace – just Kiptum, Evans Korir and Peter Some were left at the head of the field with compatriot Elisha Rotich following some 23 seconds adrift.

With a few kilometers left, Kiptum started to open up a gap on his fellow Kenyans. Korir looked to have settled for third place, but caught Some in the closing stages. He couldn’t quite catch Kiptum, who went on to win in a course record of 2:06:29.
