17 February 2008, Hong Kong Kenya sealed a clean sweep of the Greatest Race on Earth (GROE) 2007/08 marathon relay series titles in Hong Kong on Sunday morning. Both Kenya Men B and Kenya Women B teams successfully defended leads in their respective Nations Challenge competitions, after their final leg athletes were the first GROE athletes to cross the line in the Hong Kong Marathon. Cyprian Kiogara Mwobi and Anne Jepkemboi Kosgei completed the famously challenging course in impressive times of 2:18:03 and 2:41:09, giving their teams winning cumulative times of 9:09:16 and 10:49:09.

As well as clinching the US$100,000 first prizes, both teams also win US$40,000 for winning the Africa regional category, plus a bonus US$10,000 each as they clinched victory in series record times. The prize money will be shared between the four athletes that make up each team: the first leg athlete who competed in Nairobi; second leg athlete in Singapore; third leg athlete in Mumbai; and the final leg athlete in Hong Kong.

This is the fourth consecutive year that the Kenyan men’s team has won the Gold Baton trophy, and means they remain unbeaten since GROE began in 2004/05. Kenya Women B become the first winners of the Women’s Nations Challenge, which was introduced at the start of the current 2007/08 series.

Kenya further confirmed their dominance of the series, with Kenya Men A and Kenya Women A teams both finishing second in their Nations Challenge competitions
