Most of the international marathon field have times under 2hrs 11 minutes with Kenyan Chelimo Kipkemboi the best with a 2-10-30 in last year’s Toronto Marathon.
Pictured above seated with David (second from right) is Kenyan Reuben Kosgei former Olympic & world champion visiting Perth hoping to secure the $20,000 first prize. Tomorrow’s race is Reuben Kosgei’s second attempt at 42.2km.
David hasn’t had the best of starts with stomach problems most of this past week, but he is now well and will be starting the run behind the elite guys at 6.30am tomorrow.
We wish him well.
