Defending champion Chepkurui retained her women’s crown this weekend when she broke the tape with a new personal best of 2:20:59 to also set a course record.

The Kenyan long-distance runner went into the race on Sunday targeting 2:20 and the 27-year-old delivered a fine performance to take almost four minutes off her old career best.

“I am of course very happy to have won again in Vienna,” said Chepkurui. “I want to come back next year and then my goal will be to improve to 2:18.”

It was the second marathon of Chepkurui’s career, improving on her previous lifetime best mark of 2:24:29, which she set to win in Wien, last September.

Kenyan runner swept the top three spots

Finishing second was Ruth Chebitok of Kenya after she stopped the clock at a career-best time of 2:21:03 to improve on the 2:23:29 she ran in Toronto in 2018, while her countrywoman Sheila Jerotich, the Istanbul Marathon winner in November, recorded a big-time PB of 2:21:03 to take third place and improved on the 2:24:15 previous best mark she clocked last year.

Meanwhile, Cosmas Muteti surprised the favorites to take the men’s contest, running a new PB of 2:06:53 to hold off his fellow countryman and defending champion Leonard Langat, who ran a PB of 2:06:59 with Oqbe Kibrom of Eritrea rounding out the top five with a time of 2:07:25.

“This is my biggest victory,” Muteti said. “I hope to be able to defend my title here next year and then maybe break the course record.”

Kibrom entered the race as the fastest runner in the field with a PB of 2:05:53, but the 24-year-old Eritrea national record-holder was unable to replicate that performance in Wien.
