Salt Lake City 2011

Jonathan Ndambuki wins 2011 salt lake city marathon in 2:25:56

Ndambuki’s competition Saturday didn’t come from an official competitor. His actual foil on this day was Joseph Mutinda, his friend and teammate from the Amerikenyan Running Club. With Mutinda setting Ndambuki’s pace for the first 18 miles, the rest of the field became invisible. The two pulled away from the pack in Sugar House Park, at the eight-mile mark, and were by themselves for the remainder of the race. And when Mutinda called it a day, it was only Ndambuki, who won his first Salt Lake City Marathon.”It was important for my success in this race,” Ndambuki said. “To have Joseph pacing me was important. It was a little rough when he stopped running because there was nobody to run against.”
