Eliud Too Falls Short In Valiant Effort
Today's Dublin Marathon was a tactical one with the top four atheletes running together until about 39 km. Eliud Too, last year's champion, stayed tucked in the path throughout the race, but when the final move was made with less than 3 km to go, he was unable to respond to the injection of pace. Eliud came home in 4th place in 2:14:56.
