Kenya’s Robert Kiprono Cheruiyot, who set a course record with his victory in Boston two years ago, has withdrawn from Monday’s 116th Boston Marathon with an unspecified injury.

Cheruiyot, who was the first runner to break 2 hours and 6 minutes in Boston, chopped 82 seconds off Robert Kipkoech Cheruiyot’s mark with his 2:05:52 clocking in 2010. He placed sixth in last year’s race.

Scratched from the women’s event are Russia’s Galina Bogomolova and Ethiopia’s Mamitu Daska.
