April 20, 2022

When Kenyan runner Peres Jepchirchir pulled away from Ababel Yeshaneh with one mile remaining in the 2022 Boston Marathon, it appeared as if the winner of the women’s race had just announced herself.

Jepchirchir, who won both Olympic gold and the New York Marathon title last year, is known for her kick and entered Monday’s race aiming for her first Boston Marathon title.
