ed almost a minute off the co

Belachew slashed almost a minute off the course record to cross the line in 2 hours, 10 minutes and 31 seconds.

Belachew said of his Kenyan rival, "I didn't know him before but he's my friend now. We celebrated together."

"I didn't train for the last two weeks," he said. "But I didn't want to drop out. I was running for my family."

The 42-kilometer course was run -under blue skies on Sunday in contrast to the heavy rain which drenched last year's event.

Two men, aged 46 and 23, were also in critical condition, while other local media said a total of 11 runners had been taken to the hospital.
