2017 Race Synopsis

A pair of Kenyans in Edna Kiplagat and Geoffrey Kirui made their Boston Marathon debuts memorable, running away with wins. Kiplagat, a two-time World Champion, waited patiently in the field through halfway before making a bold move in the 20th mile, running a 5:02 split. That was too much for challengers Rose Chelimo and Jordan Hasay to handle, and Kiplagat soon found herself well in front conquering the Newton hills. Kiplagat’s only hiccup came at the 35K fluid station, when she mistakenly grabbed another runner’s bottle then stopped, backtracked, and returned the drink. Continuing on alone, Kiplagat won in 2:21:52 and was greeted by her children, Wendy and Carlos, at the finish. Hasay claimed third in 2:23:00, the fastest debut marathon ever by an American woman. Men’s champion Kirui used an impressive 4:28 split between miles 23 and 24 to solidify his win. Gradually, the field dwindled down from ten men at halfway until it was just Kirui and American Galen Rupp after 20 miles. Rupp tried hard to break Kirui, but the Kenyan met every surge with another acceleration and was alone from 24 miles on. Kirui won in 2:09:37 to Rupp’s 2:09:58. In his last competitive Boston Marathon, Meb Keflezighi placed 13th in 2:17:00. On the 50th anniversary of her 1967 run, pioneer Kathrine Switzer returned to Boston and completed the race in 4:44:31. Subsequently, her bib number 261 was retired by the B.A.A.
