ST. PAUL, Minn. — Christopher Kipyego of Kenya won the Twin Cities Marathon.
Kipyego finished Sunday's race with an unofficial time of 2 hours, 14 minutes and 55 seconds.
Jeannette Faber of Portland, Ore., won the women's race with an unofficial time of 2:32:38, a personal record.
The Star Tribune reported the times were well off course records, as the elite fields set slow paces in the early-morning cold.
In Sunday's USA 10-mile championship, Mo Trafeh and Janet Bawcom repeated as the men's and women's champions. Trafeh won in 46:56, 23 seconds faster than Ben True, a Greely High graduate. Bawcom won in a time of 53:43, with Duluth native Kara Goucher finishing second in 53:56.
