Unfortunately, McDonald Ondara ran 61:11 for the win. It’s the third race this year where Yuda has come out on the short end of the kicking stick (Beach to Beacon and VA Beach Half Marathon being the other two). About one minute back from the leaders was Tom Nyariki in 62:17, good for fourth place. “It wasn’t my best race, but I ran okay,” Nyariki said after the race. “I think I am a little tired after Boston [BAA Half Marathon] last weekend.” Charles Munyeki rounded out the KIMbia contingent with a 5th place finish in 62:58.

Next week Laban Kipkemboi and Charles Kibiwott will be racing the Seoul Marathon.
