Nopes it’s a fact guys! That was the most recent new marathon World Record time set by Dennis Kimetto of Kenya at the 2014 BMW Berlin Marathon in Germany held September 28th.
In so doing, the record set last year by compatriot William Kipsang of 2:03 is one for the books as 2:02:57 is now the new running time to beat!

For the ladies, Ethiopian Tirfi Tsegaye took home the crown of being the fastest with a run time of 2:20:18. No new record has been set for the women as British Paula Radcliffe still holds the World Record of 2:15: as being the fastest.

I have been a runner for more than three years now but I have never ran my 1st ever marathon. Most run friends have motivated me to do so thank you guys, super appreciate it. I guess these amazing records will inspire me more to train and finally do a coveted 42K soonest time possible & perhaps that may happen during the 2015 Condura Skyway Marathon (a very popular and sought-after major marathon event) here in Manila… ☺☺ So help me Lord…
