Geoffrey Kirui Wins 2017 Boston Marathon Over Galen Rupp (Results)

Geoffrey Kirui Wins Boston Marathon

Kenya’s Geoffrey Kirui broke away from American Galen Rupp over the last 2 miles to win the 2017 Boston Marathon in 2:09:37.  Rupp finished 20 seconds behind in 2:09:57.

Both men broke away from a large pack of elites with about 10k to go. Many thought Rupp would outkick Kirui to the finish but that simply wasn’t the case as Kirui broke away with ease to secure the victory.
