2011 Berlin Marathon: How Patrick Makau Rewrote History with 2:03:38 World Record, by Sean Hartnett, note by Larry Eder

Patrick Makau held the World Record until September 29, 2013, when Wilson Kipsang broke the world record, on Berlin, with his 2:03.23. Sean Hartnett, who we call the Professor of the Marathon is a cartographer who teaches at UW Eau Claire.
