Kenya's Wesley Korir wins men's Boston Marathon

BOSTON – Wesley Korir won the Boston Marathon on Monday in a heat-slowed unofficial time of 2 hours, 12 minutes, 40 seconds.

A year after Geoffrey Mutai ran the fastest marathon in history to win here, Korir won the second-slowest Boston race since 1985.

Mutai dropped out after 18 miles with cramps as temperatures rose into the 80s on the 26.2-mile trek from Hopkinton to Copley Square.

Korir was the 19th Kenyan men's winner in 22 years.
