Mary Keitany London Marathon Women Only World Record – Run It Fast

Mary Keitany Breaks Women’s Only World Record at London Marathon

Mary Keitany London Marathon Women Only World Record - Run It Fast

Kenya’s Mary Keitany made marathon history at the London Marathon on Sunday when she ran the fastest marathon ever in a ‘Women’s Only’ marathon with a time of 2:17:01.

The IAAF recognizes two world records for women, a “Mixed Gender” record of 2:15:25, set by Paula Radcliffe of the United Kingdom on April 13, 2003 at the London Marathon, and a (pending ratification) “Women Only” record of 2:17:01, set by Mary Keitany, on April 23, 2017 at the London Marathon. – Wikipedia

It is Keitany’s third time to win the London Marathon.

Mary Keitany London Marathon Time Women Only World Record - Run It Fast

Super fast and impressive job by Mary.  One day Radcliffe’s mixed women’s record will fall but the fact that it has stood for 14 years and has had little competition in that time is a testament to what a performance Paula but down back at the London Marathon in 2003.

Daniel Wanjiru London Marathon 2017 Winner - Run It Fast

Fellow Kenyan Daniel Wanjiru won the men’s race with a time of 2:05:48.

Congrats to Geoffrey and all the elite men on great performances today.
