Pair of Course Records Fall at 2019 Half Marathon

Oct 30, 2019 | news

 On a picture-perfect day for road racing, 6,341 participants took part in today’s 19th annual Half Marathon, presented by Cancer Institute .  Kenyans swept the top spots of the podium, as Brillian Kipkoech set a new women’s course record of 1:07:40 and Philemon Kiplimo broke the tape in 1:01:58 to win the men’s title. In the wheelchair division, Massachusetts native Katrina Gerhard set a course record, and University of Arizona student-athlete Miguel Vergara topped Tony Nogueira in a photo-finish. 

The Half Marathon was the third and final event of the 2019 Distance Medley, a three-race series that includes the 5K and 10K. Among the field were 335 runners raising nearly $500,000 for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund.  

Kipkoech separated from challengers Gotytom Gebreslase and Monicah Ngige in the ninth mile, gaining confidence with every stride. Kipkoech’s lead and the possibility of a course record  grew as she ran along the Emerald Necklace park system and through Franklin Park Zoo.
