And, his time of 2 hours, 8 minutes and 24 seconds was not only his personal best, but a course record. That’s an average of 4:53:9 per mile. Smokin’.

According to the Sporting News, Korir won $160,000 for his efforts.

    Yeah, of that $160K

    $100,000 of that is for beating the women’s champion ( who got a 16:57 head start) and $40,000 for breaking 2:09. Not to mention the Honda Accord.

    Also, his previous best was 2:13:53. SMOKIN. (all of this from Runnersworld.com)
