At a ceremony held in Ras Al Khaimah (UAE) on 12 February Dennis Kimetto was presented with the AIMS World Record Award in recognition of his World Record breaking time of 2:02:57 set in the BMW Berlin Marathon on 28 September 2014.

His achievement was given global recognition with this award subsequent to the record’s ratification and on the eve of the RAK Half Marathon, where he was guest of honour. The presentation was jointly made by AIMS General Secretary Hugh Jones and Race Director of the RAK Half Marathon and AIMS Continental PR Manager for Asia Nathan Clayton.

Kimetto (31) broke the previous record by 26 seconds, which had been set by his compatriot Wilson Kipsang in the same event in 2013.
Dennis Kimetto’s outstanding performances throughout 2014 were previously recognised with the AIMS Best Marathon Runner Award presented in November 2014 at the AIMS Gala held in Athens, the birthplace of the marathon.
