After New York’s Maegan Krifkin win in 2:33:14 last year, this year it was the turn of 31 y/o Susan Jerotich in 2:31:38 which is a HUGE 6 min PB for her. Perhaps she was so speedy because she was being chased right to the end by Mongolia’s Munkhzaya Bayartsogt (25) who finished just 10seconds after her! 3rd place went to Nina SAvina (25) of Belarus in 2:33:36 which was the second PB this year for Nina after she ran 2:33:50 in Berlin in August at the Euro champs.

Parendis Lepakana obviousley enjoyed setting her PB here last year so was back to race again and move up one place to take the win in 2018, albeit in a slightly slower time. 2:30 marathoner and compatriot Susan JEPTOO pootled home just behind her while Frenchwoman lady Karine Pasquier was also a few mins off a PB but it’s nice to have a local win.
