Chepngetich, Tura Win Warm and Windy Chicago Marathon
Oct 10, 2021On a too-warm and windy morning in Chicago, Kenya's Ruth Chepngetich and Ethiopia's Seifu Tura ran to victory at the Bank of America Chicago Marathon, the first in-person edition of an Abbott World Marathon Majors event to be held in the United States in nearly two years.

Jepkosgei, who won the 2019 TCS New York City Marathon in her debut, controlled her effort carefully before dropping the field with a 4:56 24th mile to win in a personal best 2:17:43. Lemma also made a late-race surge just before 40 kilometers to win going away in 2:04:01.

Sep 30, 2021Although Brigid Kosgei's marathon personal best of 2:14:04 is nearly three minutes faster than the all-women's world record of 2:17:01, the 27 year-old Kenyan athlete doesn't see that as a goal for Sunday's Virgin Money London Marathon, despite rich financial incentives offered by race organizers. Kosgei, who has won the last two editions of the London Marathon, said that the 57-day turnaround from her Olympic silver medal performance in Tokyo was simply too short to be in world record shape.

Such a performance would mean a total payday of over half a million dollars from all sources.
