Bermuda Pair Complete Boston Marathon

Allison Petty
Kenya’s Lawrence Cherono and Ethiopia’s Worknesh Degefa were the Men’s and Women’s winners of the 123rd Boston Marathon in circumstances that could not have been more different.

After a grandstand sprint, Cherono crossed in 2:07.57, just two seconds ahead of Ethiopia’s 2015 winner Lelisa Desisa in what was the closest finish to the men’s race since 2000, when Kenya’s Elijah Lagat beat Ethiopia’s Gezahegne Abera - Olympic champion later that year - in a photo-finish after both clocked 2:09.47.

Degefa earned her first major marathon victory in 2:23:31 after breaking away and running along for the last 20 miles of this 26.2 miles challenge, with Kenya’s Edma Kiplagat a distant second in 2:24:13, with home runner Jordan Hasay taking third place in 2:25:20.

Only two athletes competed under the Bermuda Flag.

Allison Petty finished 12,878th overall, she was the 4,180th female finisher and she was 2,777th in the Female 18-39 Age Group Category after clocking a time of 3:43.59. Petty reached the halfway stage in a time of 1:41.46.

Anna Laura Hocking finished with a time of 3:52.45, she was clocked at 1:44.09 at the halfway stage. Hocking was 15, 149th overall, she was the 5,513th and she was 1,031st in the Female 40-44 Age Group Division.
