Building off an impressive second place finish in the Panorama Farm Invitational at a difficult course in Earlysville, Va, Kipoech is suddenly rising after running a 23:46:30 in the 8000M, garnering national attention as one of FloTrack’s top-25 runners in the nation.

Kipkoech is returning to competition after finishing 10th in the 10K at the NCAA Outdoor Championships in June. The true sophomore set a Campbell University record in the 8000M last week, running what head coach Micahel Kelly deemed, “a nearly flawless race.”

The Campbell Cross Country squad is back in action on October 3rd at the USC Upstate dual meet in Spartanburg, S.C.
