The fastest n-th fastest marathon time. Runner's personal records (PR's) are often publicized. Paula Radcliffe (ENG) has the fastest PR by virtue of holding the "world record" at 2:15:24.6. Her second fastest marathon is 2:17:17.8 which is the fastest, 2nd fastest marathon time by a woman and she also holds the fastest 3rd fastest marathon at 2:18:54.6. However, Catherine Ndereba (KEN) has the "honor" of having the fastest 4th fastest marathon at 2:21:12. Her fastest marathons are (2:18:47, 2:19:26, 2:19:55 and 2:21:12). Note that this list answers other questions such as who has the most sub-2:30 marathons [Catherne Ndereba (KEN) with 22]. With this in mind, here is the list of the fastest n-th fastest marathon times.
Fastest debut marathon. For men, 2:03:06 by Moses Mosop Cheruiyot (KEN) at Boston (MA/USA) on 18 Apr 2011. For women, 2:18:56 by Paula Radcliffe (ENG) at London (ENG) on 14 Apr 2002.

Note: This list ends at 31 Dec 2007 because it has become too common to detail all of the examples.
Note: In the 2005 Nike 26.2 (CA/USA) Marathon, the first six finishers were women altho it should be noted that this was advertised as the Nike Women's Marathon despite allowing men to run.
