2011 Boston Marathon Champ Mutai to Run Ottawa 10K

Multiple world-record holder confirmed for Ottawa 10K race

MAY 10, 2012 ‰ÛÓ OTTAWA ‰ÛÓ Organizers of the Tamarack Homes Ottawa Race Weekend
today confirmed 30-year-old Geoffrey Mutai of Kenya will compete in the 10K
race on May 26, 2012.

In 2011, Mutai’s
2:03:02 finish at the Boston Marathon smashed both the course (2:05:52) and
world records (2:03:59). His time was not ratified due to the point-to-point
nature of the course (overall downhill). Last year he also set a course record
in the New York City Marathon (2:05:06), ranking him first in the world in 2011.

An equally
accomplished 10K racer, Geoffrey Mutai holds a personal best time of 27:19 from
the inaugural Boston Athletic Association 10K race in 2011.

Geoffrey
Mutai was not selected to represent Kenya in the 2012 London Olympic Summer
Games.
