Isaac Koech smashes the Douala International Marathon course record

Kenya’s Isaac Koech ran away with course record of the 4th edition of the Douala International Marathon that was held on Sunday (31) in Douala, Cameroon.

Koech who led a 1-2-3 Kenyan podium finish smashed the race course record of 2:15.00 that had been set last year by Justilin Foimi from Kenya, setting a new course record of 2:14.56. He was by Hilary Kiptom Too and Mathew Kosgei closing the first three podium finishes.

In the women race again it was a show of might as Kenya took all the three podiums finishes as Isgan Cheruto took the honors and she was followed by Rolex Jelimo with Careen Cheptoeck taking the third slot.
