Fukuoka, Japan – December 3rd, 2017
Seasoned marathoner; Stephen Kiprotich rounded off the year in style with another 2nd place finish at the Fukuoka Marathon. The venue is becoming one of the favourites for the 28 year old after he set his second career marathon finish in a time of 2:07:10 on Sunday. His best time remains 2:06:33 set in 2015 at the Tokyo Marathon.
Sunday’s run, however, produced some stunning performances from Norwegian Sondre Nordtad Moen, who not only won but set a new European Marathon record 2:05:48.
