The morning after winning the BMW BERLIN-MARATHON for the second time in three years, Eliud Kipchoge was in reflective mood. Looking back on Sunday’s race which produced more than its fair share of surprises, he offered his assessment on the upsets provided by the event’s 44thedition: “Planning to run a marathon is like life, anything can happen. You can run fast today and tomorrow you run slow.”

Eliud Kipchoge confirmed his position as the world’s strongest marathon runner by taking a dramatic win in the BMW BERLIN-MARATHON. The Kenyan clocked a world leading time of 2:03:32, but in difficult weather conditions with rain and high humidity the world record set by Kenya’s Dennis Kimetto in Berlin in 2014 with 2:02:57 was out of reach in the final part of the race. While top stars Kenenisa Bekele of Ethiopia and Kenya’s Wilson Kipsang did not manage to finish a debutant caused a major surprise: Guye Adola of Ethiopia was leading the race until close to the 40 k mark, when Olympic Champion Kipchoge came from behind and then surged ahead. Adola clocked 2:03:46 for second place, which is the fastest debut ever recorded on a record eligible course. Fellow-Ethiopian Mosinet Geremew took third place in 2:06:12. For the second time after 2015 Gladys Cherono took Germany’s most spectacular running event. The Kenyan clocked a world-class time of 2:20:23 after suffering in the final stages. Ruti Aga of Ethiopia was second in 2:20:41, while Kenya’s Valary Aiyabei took third with 2:20:53.



Eliud Kipchoge confirmed his position as the world’s number one marathon runner by taking a dramatic win in the BMW BERLIN-MARATHON.

In difficult weather conditions with rain and high humidity the world record set by Kenya’s Dennis Kimetto in Berlin in 2014 with 2:02:57 was out of reach in the final part of the race. However Kipchoge can add another superlative to his collection: No one has ever run faster in such conditions. The 32 year-old clocked a „rain world record“ in Berlin on Sunday.



Gladys Cherono is the favourite of the BMW BERLIN-MARATHON on Sunday. She already won the race in 2015 with a world-class time of 2:19:25, going within 13 seconds of breaking the course record, set in 2005 by the Japanese Mizuki Noguchi (2:19:12).
