Road Race updates, part 2 - February 2014

Our New York based runner Kieran O'Mahony was in action at TOKYO MARATHON 2014.
In Tokyo’s second year as a World Marathon Major, more than 36,000 athletes crossed the start line on a cool, overcast day in Japan’s capital city. The conditions proved to be perfect for marathon racing, as Chumba bettered the men’s course record by more than a minute (previously 2:06:50 set by Kenya’s Dennis Kimetto last year), and Tsegaye carved more than three minutes off the women’s course record (previously 2:25:28 set by Ethiopia’s Atsede Habtamu in 2012).

Kieran ran very well, finishing in an excellent time of 3:14:06 - Boston Marathon qualifying time.
