Chepngetich dominates with solo run at Nagoya Women’s Marathon 2022

On Sunday, Chepngetich clocked the second-fastest ever women-only marathon with 2:17:18 to set a new course record, while securing the top spot in the World Athletics Elite Platinum Label road race to take home a whopping US$250,000 in prize money, the largest first-place total in the world of marathon running, according to the World Athletics.

The world marathon champion who failed to finish at the Olympics in Sapporo, covered the first half of the race in 1:09:03 and the second in 1:08:15 en route to posting her second-best ever time behind her PB of 2:17:08, set in Dubai in 2019, despite running on her own for most of the race.

Israel’s Lonah Chemtai Salpeter, the 2020 Tokyo Marathon winner, also showed good form on Sunday when finishing second in 2:18:45, which is a minute off her national record.

Meanwhile, Japan’s Yuka Ando was third in 2:22:22 and she was followed by her countrywomen Ai Hosoda and Yuka Suzuki who were fourth and fifth, respectively with times of 2:24:26 and 2:25:02.
