Nancy Kiprop, Her Extended Family and School Pre Frankfurt Marathon with Andy Edwards, Race News Service


Nancy Kiprop is a formidable athlete and human being. In 2017 and 2018, Nancy ran, and won, I might add, the Vienna City Marathon. In 2017, Nancy ran 2:24.20, and won, in PB. In 2018, Nancy Kiprop won, once again, and again in PB of 2:24.18. Nancy Kiprop, quite consistent, will not go out too fast, and is the one I pick to spoil, meaning, going by the speedsters in the last few miles.

Nancy Kipop has non-running interest. She began a school in January 2018, and it had 4 students and one teacher. Now, in October 2018, she has 64 students and employs 4 teachers. Nancy has seven children, having adopted five. A thoughtful person, Nancy is looking beyond her elite status as a runner.
