Geoffrey Mutai is the eldest of 11 siblings and recently in New York, he did what he’s done so many times before, winning the New York City marathon. Geoffrey Mutai of Kenya came in first at 2:08:24, pulling away from his fellow countryman Stanley Biwott in the last few miles to take the lead.
Geoffrey Kiprono Mutai was also the winner of the 2011-12 World Marathon Majors series. He clinched the title with a victory at the 2012 BMW Berlin Marathon in 2:04:15, the sixth fastest time in history
Mutai owns the number one time with his sensational 2:03:02 victory at the 2011 Boston Marathon. While aided by a tailwind, Mutai averaged a breath-taking 4:41.5 per mile.
He also set the course record at New York City in the fall with a 2:05:06 triumph. That time slashed 2 minutes 37 seconds from a CR that had stood for 10 years. Here are a few of the highlights of Mutai’s career and there are quite a few.
