With a personal best of 2:09:06 from Eindoven, Holland in 2009, Kirui is a Skechers Performance athlete and a great example of the fine Kenyan athletes that traverse the world, searching for their perfect race. A few wins on the marathon circuit and many Kenyan runners are set for life.

Weldon Kirui spoke to RunBlogRun on Friday, March 16 about his fitness, his desire to win in LA and his desire to run a fast time. Weldon told RunBlogrun that he is fit, and wants to win in LA once again. He also noted that the LA course can be challenging. Look for Weldon to be playing a role up to the very end, racing for the win down Ocean Avenue in Santa Monica, California.
