Dickson Chumba will return to run the 2018 Bank of America Chicago Marathon

Dickson Chumba, the fifth fastest runner in Chicago's history, will return to run the 2018 Bank of America Chicago Marathon. He set his personal best, 2:04:32, in Chicago in 2014 when he finished third on an historic day that witnessed three of the top five times ever run in Chicago. He won in 2015 and while he tried to retain his title in 2016, he came up three seconds short, finishing second to Kirui. Chumba returned to Chicago in 2015 to take the crown in 2:09:25; it was Chicago’s first race without rabbits in more than two decades. He tried to defend his title in 2016, but he came up three seconds short, finishing second to Abel Kirui. Prior to becoming a professional runner in 2008, Chumba worked as a gardener. He embarked on his professional marathon career in 2010. (10/02/2018) Views: 1,049 ‚ö°AMP
