  • Kiptum won the Valencia Marathon in new Course Record time
  • His time was the fastest marathon debut in history
  • He is now third in the all-time list

Kenya’s Kevin Kiptum produced a historical run on his marathon debut as he clocked two hours, one minute and 53 seconds to win the Valencia Marathon title on Sunday morning.

The 23-year old put up a blistering performance in the Spanish city as he ran the second fastest time this year behind Eliud Kipchoge’s two hours, one minute and nine seconds World Record run in Berlin.

Kiptum’s time was the fastest marathon debut in history, and now ranks as the third fastest on the all-time list.

“I can’t believe it, but I was really prepared for this. By the grace of God I did it. I am so grateful,” Kiptum said as he still soaked in the historic victory,” said the Marathoner, who has previously run in Valencia but in the half marathon.

Meanwhile, Tanzania’s Gabriel Geay clocked 2:03:00 to finish second and run a new Tanzanian national record.
