2015 Berlin Marathon

Typically one of the fastest marathons in the world—the world record 2:02:57 by Dennis Kimetto was accomplished here last year— the Berlin Marathon always draws an interest in those seeing just how quick a runner can go in a World Marathon Majors event.

There was no world record in 2015, but Eliud Kipchoge of Kenya turned in a fast time nonetheless, winning in 2:04:00 despite the insoles coming out of his shoes mid-race. Eliud Kiptanui of Kenya was second in 2:05:21. The top American male was Matt Llano with a personal-best time of 2:12:28 to place 13th.

Gladys Cherono of Kenya won the women’s race in 2:19:25, winning by more than a minute over Ethiopia’s Aberu Kebede. Hilary Dionne was the top American female, finishing 19th in 2:34:45.
