Mr Price sponsored runner Elena Nurgalieva secured her fourth Two Oceans Marathon victory on Sunday, comfortably securing the title in a time of 3:41:55.
Second-placed countrywoman Natalia Volgina finished more than three minutes behind Nurgalieva, who was ultimately just too good on the day, despite the race taking place in inclement weather.
Before the race, there were some questions over how Nurgalieva would perform without her injured sister Olesya, with the two having previously failed to secure wins when racing in South Africa without the other being present.
In the end, though, Nurgalieva had little trouble in claiming yet another successful result, taking the tally of Two Oceans wins between her and her sister to an impressive seven.
Meanwhile, in the men’s race, Mr Price teammate Gert Thys was the first South African home in fourth place (3:09.42), comprehensively beating the world age record for 50km for the 40+ age group.
A record 25 000 runners took part in this year's Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon, with some 16 000 of those running the half-marathon, while athletes from 78 different countries entered the race.
