On February 15, 2015, Ngetich competed in the Austin Marathon. She was in the lead until she collapsed approximately fifty meters from the finish line. Despite medical personnel rushing toward her with a wheelchair, Ngetich crawled the last fifty meters on her hands and knees until she crossed the finish line. Race Director John Conley said of Ngetich's display, "You have ran [sic] the bravest race and crawled the bravest crawl I have ever seen in my life." Conley adjusted Ngetich's purse prize to reflect second place.
