Chicago Marathon

Posted by wlpo on October 7, 2012

Tsegaye Kebede of Ethiopia set a course record in winning the Chicago Marathon Sunday morning. Kebede pulled away late and was all alone, waving to the crowd as he approached the finish at Grant Park and crossing the line in 2 hours, 4 minutes, 38 seconds. That easily eclipsed the previous mark of 2:05:37 set by Kenya’s Moses Mosop last year and was more than enough to beat countryman Feyisa Lilesa. On a cool morning that seemed made for a course record, Kebede came through.
