Thousands runs through the rain

 

LNH,

There were around 22,086 participants from all over the world in the 42nd Honolulu Marathon. Thousands of enthusiast runners braved rains and slippery roads on sunday to be part a part of one of the largest Marathon in the world.

A few of them were ‘Elite’ runners who have been participating from years and on the other side a few of them who were participating for the first time.  Also a few who signed up just for the fun. Whatever might be the reason for the participation, enthusiasm in the marathon was appreciable even after the inconvenient weather conditions.

A crowd queued at the starting point on Ala Moana Boulevard. With a brilliant display of fireworks sharp at 5 a.m, the marathon kicked off.

At two hours and 15 minutes, Wilson Chebet of Kenya was the first to cross the finish line. Chebet was closely followed by fellow Kenyan Paul Lonyangata at a time of 2:16:04, and Geb Abraha of Ethiopia, was third at 2:16:27.

Joyce Chepkirui of Kenya was the first female finisher, clocking in at 2 hours and 30 minutes. Chepkirui beat Lisa Nemec of Croatia and Isabella Ochichi of Kenya, coming in second and third respectively, by seconds.

Katie O’Neil is the first local female runner to finish, at 3:03:39…. MORE
