Boston Marathon Results
April 17, 2012 by staff
Boston Marathon Results, The Boston Marathon is an excellent showcase for some of the best runners around the world. Yesterday’s 2012 edition was no different. While runners were forced to run in temperatures that hovered around 85 degrees, the best of the best prevailed and posted some impressive times. Let’s take a look at a few of the top finishers in the marathon.
Korir was the first of the 22,000 who ran in the 116th Boston Marathon to cross the finish line. He posted a time of 2 hours, 12 minutes and 40 seconds. Korir’s time fell very short of the 2011 winners time (Geoffrey Mutai in 02:03:02), but this was due to the heat, which he spoke about afterwards.
Hartman was the first American to cross the finish line 2 hours, 14 minutes and 31 seconds, which was good for fourth place overall. It was the 31 year old from Colorado’s first Boston Marathon appearance, and he performed terrifically. Hartman said his goal was to maintain a steady pace and pass those who ran overly aggressive.
