Chebii and Chelimo secure Kenyan sweep at the 2017 B.A.A. 10K

On a picture-perfect summer morning for racing through downtown Boston, Kenya’s Daniel Chebii and Joan Chelimo ran to victories at the seventh annual B.A.A. 10K, presented by Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Chebii retained his title with a time of 27:58, while Chelimo earned her first win in Boston in 31:24. A total of 8,135 participants completed this year’s race, which started and finished at Boston Common.

Winning the masters division was 2014 Boston Marathon champion Meb Keflezighi. In his first B.A.A. 10K, Keflezighi finished in 31:01 and savored the experience, slapping high-fives in the final stretch. He also stayed at the finish and greeted many of the race’s 8,135 finishers.

“This was the best victory lap,” said Keflezighi. “The people know who I am, and you can hear it. They want to come close to you and say ‘Good job Meb, you’re our hero, thank you Meb.’ I’m not in contention, but I’m getting the loudest cheer which is amazing. The significance of the 2014 win is still very vibrant and it’s good to be back here and able to run.”
