You wouldn’t be wrong to call David Barmaasi Tumo the slayer of the 2020 Lagos Marathon 42-kilometre race. He not only won the race, he also set a new record!

He crossed the finish line in 2 hours, 10 minutes and 20 seconds – a new record for the race. Last year, Ethiopia’s Sintayehu Legese won the Lagos City Marathon in 2 hours, 17 minutes and 28 seconds.

The 42km race commenced from National Stadium, Surulere, Lagos, and finished at Eko Atlantic.

31-year-old David is a Kenyan long-distance runner who specializes in marathon running. He has a personal best of 2:07:18 hours and came fifth at the 2011 World Championships in Athletics.

He will be leaving Lagos with a whopping $50,000, while the runners-up and second runners-up will bag $40,000 and $30,000 respectively.
