Iten-based former world marathon record holder Wilson Kipsang received the biggest pay day after topping the standings in the six-race World Marathon Majors Series that earned him a handsome $500,000 (Sh50 million) jackpot.
This was besides the impressive earnings he made in winning individual races in the series, like the London and New York Marathons.
In April, 2014, Kipsang won the London Marathon in a course record two hours, four minutes and 29 seconds.
The victory earned him $55,000 (Sh5.5 million) while for running a sub-2:05 time, he banked a bonus payment of $100,000 (Sh10 million) besides a further $25,000 (Sh2.5 million) bonus set aside for anyone winning the race in a course record time.
With a special “appearance fees” as a world record holder, that rises to as much as $100,000 (Sh10 million), and a special winning bonus from his kit sponsors Adidas, Kipsang’s London pay day was no less than Sh20 million, on the conservative side.
