The various time and record bonuses for Jepkosgei pushed her winnings over 100,000 Euros. Violah Jepchumba finished second in 65:22, PRing by 29 seconds but moving back a spot to No. 5 on the world all-time list.
It was a mixed bag for the Oregon Project athletes. Jordan Hasay stormed home in sixth 67:55, making her the third fastest American ever on a record-legal course, trailing only Deena Kastor and Molly Huddle. (Kara Goucher once ran 66:57 on a non-record-legal course.) Galen Rupp only ran 61:59 for 11th.
Tamirat Tola won the men's race in 59:37, unofficially. He dominated two months after winning the Dubai Marathon in 2:04:11.
But the story of the day is the world record and the outrageously bold fashion in which it was run. Peres Jepchirchir's old world record was run with male pacemakers, and so was Jepkosgei's, but Jepkosgei ran one of the most aggressive road races in history today.
