While Kenya’s Richard Sigei crossed the line in the Olympic Stadium in 1:13:34fellow Kenyan Lucy Kabuu ran 1:21:37. High temperatures during the race made it impossible for the 29 year-old to come closer to the world record she wanted to attack. Mary Keitany (Kenya) established this mark three years ago in the BIG 25 Berlinwith 1:19:53. But Lucy Kabuu’s winning time is still a very good one. It is the third fastest ever run at this distance. Adding all running events organiser BERLINRUNS registered 10,901 athletes in the BIG 25 Berlin.
