Kenyan man wins 10th annual Fargo Marathon
Question of the Day
FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The 10th annual Fargo Marathon wrapped up Saturday afternoon, bringing to a close three days of races that drew more than 23,000 participants.
The full marathon, the weekend’s main event, took place Saturday morning, along with the half-marathon and the 10K.
Kenya native Peter Kemboi finished the marathon first overall with an unofficial time of 2 hours, 26 minutes and 54 seconds. Kemboi, who now resides in Hebron, Kentucky, crossed the finish line in front of the historic Fargo Theater the clear winner, but second-place finisher Arturs Bareikis, of Crestwood, Illinois, finished just 39 seconds later. The two were neck and neck until about the final mile, when Kemboi took off.
Kate Papenberg, of Syracuse, Utah, championed the women’s section Saturday, finishing more than three minutes ahead of the second-place runner with an unofficial time of 2 hours, 53 minutes.
For the half-marathon, Devin Monson, of Austin, Texas, finished first in the men’s section with an unofficial time of 1 hour and six minutes. Emma Lee, of St. Paul, Minnesota, led the women’s group with 1 hour, 17 minutes and 36 seconds, finishing 12th overall.
The marathon started a decade ago with more than 2,300 runners and has since grown considerably.
