Former Bloomsday champion Allan Kiprono hung with the lead pack early in Sunday’s race and he followed a fellow Kenyan all the way to the base of Doomsday Hill. Kiprono then put on a running clinic, leaving 24-year-old Cloephas Ngetich and another fellow Kenyan, Kevin Kochei, far behind as he took a commanding lead coming out of Doomsday Hill and won the 12-kilometer race going away in 34 minutes, 11 seconds. The 2012 champion finished third last year before winning by the huge margin of 29 seconds in a race that ranks as the 12th-fastest time in the 38-year history of Bloomsday/Thomas Clouse, SR.
