Leonard Korir becomes first American man to win the Falmouth Road Race since 1988
History was made this morning when Leonard Korir became the first American since 1988 to win the men’s division of the Falmouth Road Race. It was an exciting end to the 47th annual race that saw plenty of fog and muggy temperatures.
Four-time winner Stephen Sambu came in second and Edward Cheserek placed third.
In previous races at the event, Korir finished second in 2016 and 2017 and third last year and 2015.
In the women’s elite division, Sharon Lokedi, a recent Kansas graduate from Kenya, crossed the finish line first and Sarah Hall came in second.
