Runners to watch in the Boston Marathon
Evans CheruiyotNumber: 5
Personal Best: Chicago, 2008 2:06:25
Boston Marathon: Eighth in 2009 (2:12:45)
Of Note: Though not related to 2010 Boston Marathon champion Robert Kiprono Cheruiyot, the two train together in the Rift Valley of Kenya. Evans Cheruiyot had a picture-perfect start to his marathon career, winning in both Milan (2007) and Chicago (2008). Cheruiyot missed most of 2010 because of injuries, but returned to finish runner-up in Dubai in January (2:08:17).
