The 29-year-old Salpeter clocked 2:24:17 destroying the old course record of 2:28:15 and her personal best of 2 hours and 40 minutes and 16 seconds.
Her new personal best time is not only a new course record but also a new Israeli marathon record.
Salpeter now holds national records at various events ranging from 1500m to the marathon.
Chemtai appeared on a global stage in August when she took a gold medal in the 10,000 meters race at the European Championships in Berlin but then failed to win the 5,000m as she mistakenly stopped running a lap too early after thinking she had just finished in second place.
