Braden Currie Gives an Inside Look at Kona Marathon Dynamics

New Zealand’s Braden Currie got a broad taste of some of the dynamics that can happen in a highly-competitive long-distance race. He ran shoulder-to-shoulder with Tim O’Donnell, had some fun banter with eventual race winner Patrick Lange, and then held off a late surge from Matt Russell. Ultimately Currie finished the day in fifth in 8:04:41–his best Kona finish to date.
