Kenyan Cherop, marathon bronze medallist at last year’s World Championships in Daegu, beat second-placed Hilda Kibet to the finish line in the benchmark-setting time on Sunday.
Kibet, born in Kenya but representing the Netherlands, was timed at 2:25.56 ahead of third placed Valeria Straneo (2:27.04).
Terer meanwhile was a surprise package in the male version, winning his maiden marathon with a strong time of two hours, 10 minutes and 35 seconds.
Ben Andrew Kimutai earned plaudits after crossing the line in 2:18.48 despite hitting the proverbial wall at one stage and falling to the pavement.
After some brief treatment, Kimutai continued on to set a great time under the circumstances.
