LaSalle Bank Chicago Marathon
October 08, 2007
In the hottest temperatures on record, 36,000 starters from all 50 states and 120 countries competed in the 30th running of the LaSalle Bank Chicago Marathon. The heat set the scene for the drama that was about to unfold in the MenÃ¢ÂÂs and WomenÃ¢ÂÂs finishes.
The MenÃ¢ÂÂs finish was arguably the most memorable in the entire history of the event, pitting Patrick Ivuti of Kenya against Jaouad Gharib of Morocco. Coming down the final 600 meter stretch, Gharib held a 15 meter lead, that steadily dissolved in the mad sprint to the finish. At the tape it was Ivuti, literally leaning in for the win. Both runners received the same finishing time, but with further review it was determined that Ivuti was victorious by five hundredths of a second.
The womenÃ¢ÂÂs race was also arguably the most dramatic in the raceÃ¢ÂÂs history, pitting Adriana Pirtea of Romania, making her marathon debut, against Berhane Adere of Ethiopia. Pirtea, not looking behind, held a 30-second lead on defending champion Adere with two kilometers to go. Adere, seemingly coming out of nowhere, bridged the gap in less than 600 meters for the win, flying past a totally unaware Pirtea who was confident that victory was hers.
An unbelievable day of running in Chicago. Period.
