Worknesh Degefa and Lawrence Cherono won the 2019 Boston Marathon, an IAAF Gold Label road race, on Monday (15th) with utterly different race strategies. Degefa, running her first Boston, pulled away from the pack after the 5km mark and ran alone for two hours to the finish, winning in 2:23:31. Cherono ran defensively and only seized the lead from two-time Boston champion Lelisa Desisa in the last strides of the race, his clocking of 2:07:57 to Desisa’s 2:07:59 not really capturing how close their finish actually was.
