AIMS News AIMS Gala Awards, Athens, Greece, November 2014

And the winners are… Green Award

Dennis Kimetto and Florence Kiplagat were acclaimed as the best male and female Marathon runners in 2014. The Gala was presented by the Patron of AIMS, OPAP S.A., the leading gaming operator in Greece.

■ The BMW Frankfurt Marathon received the AIMS Green Award for 2014 in recognition of the event’s pioneering approach to environmental protection. Frankfurt develop new projects every year in six ‘spheres of action’ where continuous improvement of environmental protection is targeted. Also shortlisted for the award were the Volkswagen Prague Marathon in the Czech Republic and the Maratón Querétaro in Mexico. Both had set world records earlier in the year. Dennis Kimetto won the BMW Berlin Marathon on 28 September in a new world record of 2:02:57, the first person to break the 2:03 barrier. That achievement immediately ignited fevered discussion of when the two-hour barrier would be broken. He had previously, at the start of the period under consideration, won the Bank of America Chicago Marathon on 5 October 2013 in a time of 2:03:45. Florence Kiplagat had also set a new World Record — in the eDreams Mitja Marató de Barcelona on 16 February. She recorded a time of 1:05:12, improving on Mary Keitany’s previous record by an impressive margin of 38 seconds. Florence went on two months later to finish second in the Virgin Money London Marathon in a time of 2:20:24, which placed her third on the list of leading times for 2014.

Jo Schindler, Race Director of the BMW Frankfurt Marathon commented: “The AIMS Green Award is an effective way to promote and share best environmental practice of distance running races around the world. And there is no better place from which to send the message than here in Athens, the birthplace of the Marathon”. AIMS President Paco Borao said: “It is wonderful that 370 AIMS member races from over 100 countries have recognised the great achievements of these athletes in the spiritual home of the Marathon Movement, which lies here in Athens. The athletes recognised tonight are an inspiration to people all around the world in promoting the marathon and the distance running movement. It is our duty and pleasure to recognise such fine athletes.”

Social Award ■ The AIMS Social Award for 2014 was presented to the Tokyo Marathon for its outstanding work in raising money for chosen charitable causes.

Lifetime Achievement Award The AIMS Lifetime Achievement Award was presented to George Hirsch in recognition of his role in the development of the Marathon Movement in North America, which later spread to all other continents. George was worldwide publisher of Runner’s World magazine and, in collaboration with Race Director Fred

Lebow, helped to realise the groundbreaking five-borough New York City Marathon to celebrate the American Bicentenary in 1976. He is currently Chairman of the Board of the New York Road Runners, the organisers of the TCS New York City Marathon. George Hirsch said “I have watched with great pride as the Marathon

Movement has grown and developed since the 1970s. I would like to extend my thanks to AIMS for choosing to recognise me in this way. To receive the award here in Athens feels special: I have received this accolade in the shadow of those who laid the historical foundations for the event 2500 years ago. It is a very humbling experience.”

Tadaaki Hayano, Race Director of the Toyko Marathon said: “Tokyo Marathon is honoured by AIMS’ recognition through the AIMS Social Award. We are very proud of our TSUNAGU (“Unite”) programme which we operate under the slogan ‘The Day We Unite’ – that day being our race day. It provides a way to recognise not only the 36000 runners who take part in the Tokyo Marathon but also the 10000 volunteers and 1.6 million people who cheer the runners on. We continue year on year to break our records for the money raised for our chosen charities.” Distance Running | 2015 Edition 1

AIMS News New AIMS members ■ The Maraton Int’l de Tijuana (MEX) has been held for four years and attracts about 650 runners to the city lying just south of the US border. Course records are held by Simon Kariuki (KEN) at 2:14:04 and by Mary Akor (USA) at 2:37:57 ■ The Chia Laguna Half Marathon (ITA) has been held twice, attracting 1000 men and 400 women to the island of Sardinia for the title race and associated 10km. Course records stand to Daniele Meucci, with 1:07:45 and Valeria Straneo with 1:13:50. ■ Held over the eccentric distance of 16.945km, the Grande Prémio Fim da Europa (POR) is all about the course. Clinging to the coastline of the westernmost extremity of continental Europe, 2000 runners enjoy the spectacular woodland scenery of the Cabo da Roca. Held on the last Sunday in January. ■ Held for six years on the last Saturday of the year the El Corte Inglés São Silvestre de Lisboa (POR) attracts 5000 men and 1700 women, among whom are 250 foreign runners from 20 countries, for an early evening run on the streets of Lisbon. Records stand at 29:25 and 32:19 to Rui Silva and Sara Moreira

■ Held three times, the Ladakh Marathon and Half (IND) instantly established itself as an ‘apex’ event: the race is run at 3350m altitude among the Himalayan peaks of Indian Tibet. 1800 runners participated in the title race last September, including 60 from 12 foreign countries. Apart from the Marathon, Half and 10km there is also a 71km ultra on offer for such hardy souls who can cope with climbing the 5500m Khardungla Pass (in darkness) – the highest motorable road in the world. ■ The eDreams Mitja Marató de Barcelona (Barcelona Half Marathon, ESP) leapt into the headlines in February 2014 with the world record of 1:05:12 that Florence Kiplagat ran there. Eliud Kipchoge holds the men’s record with 1:00:04. 14,000 runners are expected for the 26th edition on 15 February. ■ The Chevron Houston Marathon and Aramco Half Marathon (USA) has been held on the third Sunday of the year for the last 43 years, and established itself as a main event in the USA Marathon calendar, drawing 17000 runners split evenly between men and women and with 400 of them coming from 30 other countries. Course records stand at 2:06:51 and 2:23:14 to Ethiopians Bazu Worku and Alemitu Abera ■ Held three times, the Satara Hill Half Marathon (IND) sees over 1500 runners participate. Course records are 1:08:19 and

New Associate members ■ The Al Amerat Challenge Race (OMA) is run for 4.5km up a mountain pass on the outskirts of the Omani capital Muscat. Runners go just beyond the summit to a Uturn and then descend, making this a very technically demanding course where times are secondary to performance. Five hundred ran the first editon, including 100 foreign runners from 23 countries. To be next held on 14 February ■ The Tata Steel Kolkata 25km (IND) was first held on 28 December 2014, a sister event to the Airtel Delhi Half Marathon and the Standard Chartered Mumbai Marathon. ■ Held once, the Scottish Half Marathon (GBR) is a sister race to the Edinburgh Marathon, next to be held on 19 September 2015. Course records were established at 1:11:22 and 1:26:13 in the inaugural edition. About 2500 ran the first race, split evenly between men and women. The next edition will be run on 15 February ■ The Penang Bridge Half Marathon (MAS) a sister event to the Penang Bridge Marathon, will be held for the first time on 14 June.

Major Greek sponsorship On 10 December AIMS President Paco Borao and the President of the Hellenic Athletics Federation (SEGAS) Mr. Kostas Panagopoulos announced that SEGAS will be the major sponsor of AIMS for the next six years. This agreement reinforces the location of the AIMS Headquarters on Spyros Louis Avenue in Athens for the next six years. Mr. Panagopoulos said “the cooperation of SEGAS with AIMS started eight years ago. The first result was a new symbol, that of the ‘marathon flame’, and a new institution, the annual AIMS Symposium, which brings together marathon organisers from all over the world every year in Athens. The Headquarters of AIMS has been established here and in recent years the AIMS Best Marathon Runner Awards Gala. All these activities promote the international image of Athens Marathon the Authentic and

they promote Greece and its history and culture as the birthplace of the Marathon. When the company that was previously AIMS Patron could not continue this relationship, we decided to take over this role. SEGAS will be the major sponsor of AIMS until 2021.” Paco Borao said “on behalf of AIMS I would like to thank OPAP S.A for its

three years of sponsorship which allowed AIMS to initiate its presence in Athens, and SEGAS for their support in allowing this to continue. I extend my thanks to the Greek Ministry of Culture and Sports and the Ministry of Tourism, the Olympic Athletic Center of Athens OACA, and the Athens Marathon, the Authentic for their contribution to the success of this AIMS-SEGAS agreement. As the birthplace of the Marathon and location of the inaugural Olympic Games, it is easy to understand why AIMS, dedicated to “fostering and promoting marathons and distance races throughout the world” could not have a more appropriate location for its headquarters than Athens. AIMS will make all efforts to project the image of Greece, its history, the magnificence of its monuments and culture, and the recognition of resilient sporting values like peace, health, and solidarity.”

Marathon Symposium The 8th edition of the AIMS Marathon Symposium, held on 8 November, built upon the theme ‘Adding value to your race’ with four separate contributions to the theme. Carlo Capalbo, of the Prague Marathon described how, by building a portfolio of events and developing a “Running Mall” in Prague as a physical focus for runners, running had become a year-round social activity in the Czech capital. Andrea Eby, of the Vancouver Marathon, gave a review of how social media can inspire people with enthusiasm for the marathon. She emphasised that this requires constant attention and responsiveness in a “two-way conversation”, without which any value added can quickly drain away. Jean Gracia, of the European Athletics Association, explained the thinking behind the “Star” scheme which attempts to evaluate the quality of a road race by using a checklist of 54 criteria, many of them relating to safety. He emphasised that in many cases the rules of running are rules of the road rather than rules of athletics, and road race organisers have established great expertise in this area. Former race director of the BAA Boston Marathon, Tim Kilduff then spoke on adding value through a TV production. He said that it sometimes becomes a contest of the race vs the coverage, but the key to successful co-operation is understanding the needs of the other party. Otherwise “at moments of stress relationships just get blown away.”

Children’s Series The three races in the AIMS Children’s Series for 2015 are scheduled for: April – Zimbabwe (final event) August – South Africa (second event) August – Paraguay (final event)

The next edition of Distance Running will be published in April 2015, covering races held from January to March 2015. The advertising and editorial deadlines will be on 9 March.

President’s message C

ontinuing the strong pace set in recent years AIMS membership in 2014 jumped to almost 400. This is higher than ever before and reflects the growing number of people taking up running as a sport all over the world. Two world records were broken: Florence Kiplagat ran 1:05:12 in the half marathon back in February and Dennis Kimetto followed up with the first ever sub-2:03 Marathon time, running 2:02:57 in Berlin on 29 September. But not everything was good news this year, and we acknowledge the concern about doping. AIMS remains strongly committed to working with all interested parties in the fight against the use of prohibited substances and to keeping our sport free of such unfair and dangerous practices. The AIMS Best Marathon Runner Award Gala was held in Athens on 8 November with the theme “Women and Running”. Dennis Kimetto and Florence Kiplagat received their awards as the best man and woman, BMW Frankfurt Marathon the Green Award, Tokyo Marathon the Social Award, George Hirsch the Lifetime Achievement Award, and this time five women from the ranks of the mass runners were singled out for their contribution in expanding the reach of the marathon family. AIMS closed 2014 by reaching agreement with the Hellenic Athletics Federation (SEGAS) which becomes the new Patron Sponsor of AIMS for the period 2015–2020, ensuring the continuity of the AIMS Headquarters in Athens. On behalf of AIMS I express our deepest gratitude for such generous consideration. Together we will promote Greece in general, Athens Marathon — the Authentic, and the joint AIMS-SEGAS projects including the AIMS Marathon Symposium and the Marathon Flame. We do all this through sharing the principles of the marathon movement: effort, will, friendship, and solidarity.

Bournemouth Marathon Festival, Great Britain

Bourne to run With miles of glorious, unspoilt golden sands and clear blue sea, Bournemouth and Poole provide a stunning backdrop for the ultimate run in a pure and clean natural environment: running as it should be By Amy Cameron Photos by Lesley Martin

fter last year’s inaugural event the Bournemouth Marathon Festival has established itself on the UK running calendar — and the 2014 event was bigger and better. The full weekend of events attracted around 10,500 runners with thousands more lining the course to support Saturday’s Speed of Light 5km, Supersonic 10km and junior races, as well as Sunday’s half marathon, which follows the same course as the pinnacle event, the marathon.

At 10.00 Steve Way, inspirational hometown hero and former overweight smoker who represented England at this year’s Commonwealth Games, got the marathon under way in King’s Park just minutes after finishing second in the half marathon.

Runners go past the historic Savoy Hotel, opened in 1912, and onto Western Overhill Drive, which involves a slight ascent before they come back down onto the promenade for some more beautiful beach running. The climatic finale comes as runners approach the second, more iconic, Bournemouth Pier. First constructed in 1856, the pier has undergone numerous transformations over the years, with the addition of the Bournemouth Pier Theatre in 1959. Framed by the Isle of Wight on one side and the Purbeck Hills on the other, the pier was attacked by Teredo Worm in 1866 and the wooden piles were removed in favour of cast iron replacements, but even with this improvement the Continued on page 17

From King’s Park runners make their way down Seabourne Road then along Broadway towards the Southbourne Coast Road. Runners return along the coast road and make their way onto Undercliff Drive, taking in some magnificent views and filling their lungs with the refreshing sea air. They run past Boscombe Pier, built in 1889, which has recently undergone a £2.4 million restoration project. It was declared “Britain’s coolest pier” by Wayne Hemingway MBE in 2009. In 2010 Boscombe Pier was voted “Pier of the Year” by the National Piers Society.

Eugenius Birch designed the replacement 255m iron pier at a cost of £21,600. It opened on 11 August 1880. Covered shelters and a bandstand were added to the pier head in 1855, followed by extensions in 1894 and 1905. The new landing stage increased the pier’s length to 305m.

Marathon debutant Andrew Lesuuda beat last year’s winner Ebisa Merga of Ethiopia into second place by nearly four minutes. Leading British runner Andrew Clark of the local Poole Runners club, followed in third, 15 minutes behind. Lesuuda, who has paced several marathons but never raced the full distance, said: "I am very happy. This is my first marathon and my biggest success so far. I would love to come back and defend next year." Kateryna Stetsenko was the first female to cross the line, keeping the title in Ukrainian hands for the second successive year, following compatriot Olha Kotovska’s victory last year. Stetsenko’s time was just under a minute slower than last year’s winning time. Afterwards, Stetsenko said: “It is my best time in two years. The race was good – very flat, with very nice support from people and good weather.”

The Bournemouth Marathon Festival had large contingents of charity runners who unfailingly bring enthusiasm, colour and excitement to the festival. An estimated $750,000 was raised for good causes by runners taking part in the Bournemouth Marathon Festival. Among the charity runners were Joe Elliot, Chris Spencer and David Withers who completed the ‘grand slam’ of 5km, 10km, half marathon and marathon races. Others took part in the Bournemouth Marathon Festival as part of their ongoing endurance challenges including Steve Gill who completed his 24th half marathon in as many weeks as part of his project to finish 52 half marathons in 52 weeks in a record combined time. And the incomparable Steve Edwards completed his 652nd marathon of the 1000 he targets as a lifetime total.

Bank of America Chicago Marathon, USA Every October runners from across the USA and around the world travel to the Bank of America Chicago Marathon. In 2014 40,802 of them trod their way for 26.2 miles through 29 diverse Chicago neighborhoods towards the same final destination in Grant Park. Along the way 12,000 volunteers and hundreds of thousands of spectators offered their support and applause as runners accomplished something magnificent by fighting their way to the finish line on Columbus Drive. he Bank of America Chicago Marathon represents more than a historic footrace. It showcases a community of runners energized and fueled by a reason to run. From the debut marathoner and charity runner to the race veteran and elite athlete participants testify to what the marathon is all about: discovering who you are, raising funds for a charitable cause, keeping a streak alive and stoking the competitive fire within. Race day animates thousands of stories from the front, middle and back of the pack. Each story endures long after the Marathon journey is complete and each story highlights the human potential and capacity to not only survive, but also thrive.

T

Throughout its 37-year history, the Bank of America Chicago Marathon has staged four world records, two American records and countless personal bests. From its roots as a local race to its current status as a world-class global event it has remained true to the vision of its original organizers: the Chicago Marathon is “the people’s race anyone can come and enjoy.” More than 660,000 participants have crossed the finish line since 1977. Every finisher etches his or her name in history, and every finisher – from the elite athlete to the six-hour runner – is victorious. In its latest edition the Bank of America Chicago Marathon had a record number of finishers and saw unparalleled support along the course from spectators and volunteers, but the race was not always a global sensation.

marathon to Chicago started in 1976 among a small group of local running enthusiasts. On 25 September 1977 this group realized their vision when they hosted 4,200 participants in the first ever Chicago Marathon. The Bank of America Chicago Marathon has since evolved from a community event into one of the six ‘World Marathon Majors’ that now welcomes runners from all 50 states and more than 100 countries. As a result of its national and international draw the marathon helps raise millions of dollars for a variety of charitable causes while also generating $253 million in annual economic impact to its host city, according to a report by the University of Illinois at UrbanaChampaign’s Regional Economics Applications Laboratory (R.E.A.L.).

Podgorica Marathon, Montenegro

October

26 2014

From little hills By Milan Madzgalj

big things grow

Podgorica, the capital of Montenegro, is a city of 150,000 citizens making up almost one-third of the national population. The name translates from Serbian as “under the Gorica” where Gorica means “little hill” or hillock, referring to the cypress-covered hill that overlooks the city centre. he city lies 50km from the Adriatic Sea on the lower slopes of the Dalmatian Mountains and offers great opportunities for marathon runners to run in natural surroundings. Montenegro’s touristic appeal is very much focused on its natural and ecological resources, and these will make a lasting impression on visitors. Even a few days’ stay will impress and also allow you to sample the rich national cuisine.

T

With the capital’s efforts to improve recreational and sporting conditions for casual participants and professional sportspeople alike the city is becoming recognised on the sporting map as a reliable organiser of international competitions. Continued on page 23 Distance Running | 2015 Edition 1

The Podgorica Marathon was first held on 8 October 1994 and has been held annually for the 21 years since, on the last Sunday in October. Race day offers a choice of the marathon, a half marathon, a 5km Fun Run and a 1km Eco run for the youngest runners. For 20 years the Podgorica Marathon has incorporated the national championship in both Marathon and half marathon for men and women. Podgorica has twice hosted the Balkan Marathon Championships.

Mr Milan Madzgalj was one of the founders of the Podgorica Marathon and is also the general secretary of the organisation, bearing the responsibility of ensuring the success and continuity of the event. Technical organisation is done by the Podgorica Marathon Running Club, while the City of Podgorica is the de facto sponsor through the full support it gives to the race. Similarly, the Danilovgrad Municipality has traditionally extended fulsome support to the half marathon.

from Serbia, have run all 21 editions of the Podgorica Marathon.

The course for both marathon and half marathon provides good running conditions, passing as it does through Podgorica’s natural green environment. Since 1996 the marathon has been included in the calendar of the European Athletics Association, and in 2010 it became a full member of AIMS with international certification of the course.

The Podgorica Marathon awards winners in each five-year age category upwards from age 35. The first three male and female finishers in the Marathon win cash prizes, trophies, medals and certificates. Awards extend to 10th place in the men’s race and eighth place in the women’s. The time limit for Marathon participants is 5 hours and 30 minutes. For the half marathon it is 3 hours.

The Podgorica Marathon has become a trade mark of the city, and of Montenegro itself. It is a sporting, cultural and touristic event which attracts more and more participants and supporters from throughout Montenegro, neighboring countries and the wider world. Over 541 runners from 35 countries took part in the latest edition along with 5000 participants in the eco-race and eco-thon. At the time of the marathon the average temperature is around 23C. Course records stand to Petko Stefanov of Bulgaria, who recorded 2:11:41 and to Serbia’s Olivera Jevtic, who ran 2:31:18. Fastest Montenegrin times have been those of Drago Music at 2:24:18 and Sladana Perunovic at 2:39:07. Drago Boroja and Drago Knezevic, both

Osaka Marathon, Japan

October

26 2014

Thirty thousand runners participating; ten thousand volunteers providing support; and hundreds of thousands of roadside spectators cheering the runners on. Welcome to the Osaka Marathon, the biggest in Japan.

Marathon cheer

espite its relative newness — it will be held for only the fifth time in 2015 — the Osaka Marathon is already an extremely popular event throughout Japan. The 2014 edition also welcomed a large number of overseas participants, especially from other Asian countries. Overall, but excluding Japan, more than 5000 entries came from 51 countries and regions.

D

The marathon starts from right in front of Osaka’s most well-known landmark: its Castle. From an area that embodies the city’s history — including Naniwa-no-miya, the remains of an ancient capital city — the course enters Midosuji Boulevard, lined with Ginkgo trees. From there on to bustling

Dotonbori Street, where reflections of large advertising billboards ripple on the surface of the canal. The course passes through other well-known places of interest such as Nakanoshima, with its dazzling modern architecture, and Tsutenkaku, with Osaka’s symbolic tower. The finish lies in front of the INTEX Osaka building in the southern part of the city. The course is flat and the time limit is seven hours (but 2:20 for wheelchair competitors), so it is no surprise that the Osaka Marathon has a very high finisher rate, with some 95% of runners completing the course.

Continued from page 25 On Marathon Day the city bubbles with a festive mood as a hundred cheerleading, dancing, and drumming teams perform along the roadside. What further boosts the mood is the impassioned humor-laced roadside encouragement of friendly, busy-body Osaka-ites. Brandishing signs, dressed up in creatively festive costumes, and calling out to runners as they pass by, the spectators enjoy the marathon even more than the runners. The Osaka Marathon is renowned for spectators engaging with the runners, and drawing a reflexive smile from them even as they become increasingly weary. Another Osaka Marathon institution is the MaidoAID food service at the 32.5km mark. Here a selection of Japanese foods, including takoyaki — a favorite local dish in a city famed for its delicious cuisine — sushi rolls, and pickles, that have been lovingly prepared by local residents is set out to the delight of runners. A warm exchange with the people of Osaka, who love to entertain others, is a compulsory component of running the Osaka Marathon, and contributes to the joy participants get from doing so. The Osaka Marathon EXPO is the largest of its kind in Japan. In addition to the check-in for runners, there are booths where the latest sporting goods from various manufacturers can be tried out

and/or bought, as well a variety of events, including informative pre-marathon lectures and an auction conducted by charity ambassadors. The Umaimon Ichiba food court offers a tasting of delicious foods from throughout Japan, making this an event that can be enjoyed not only by runners but also people with absolutely no interest in runners or running: no wonder the EXPO venue overflows with more than 100,000 visitors every year. Working as one of the 10,000 volunteers supporting the marathon is another popular draw: places are filled almost immediately after applications open. Volunteers might register runners, or provide first aid, water, and food to runners, among various other roles. Many runners have expressed their appreciation for the encouragement provided by the volunteers’ exhortation to “Keep it up!” at the water station, or “Congratulations!” or “Good run!” as they hand over medals at the finish with a smile after runners cross the finish line. “Running will always benefit someone”: the Osaka Marathon is also a charity marathon. A program has been created to enable not only runners but also spectators, volunteers, and any other people involved with the marathon to easily participate in charity fundraising with the aim of making the Osaka Marathon the world’s largest event in terms of people’s charity participation. There are seven

charity themes: to support your hopes in life; to assist your dreams; to support families; to conserve the environment; to provide clean water; for the sake of a bright future for children; and to preserve our beautiful city. All runners participating in the Osaka Marathon select a charity theme when they enter, and on the day of the marathon, they wear number cards and goods in the charity’s theme colors as they run. Beginning with the 3rd Osaka Marathon (Osaka Marathon 2013), a special category has been established for participating runners who collect more than 70,000 yen in donations. Other fundraising efforts include the sale of charity Tshirts produced in collaboration with young artists. For this latest Osaka Marathon “Number Cards with Nicknames” were offered, allowing spectators to cheer runners by their chosen name. The introduction of this new program led to energetic exchanges of “high fives”, assisted by the distribution of gloves printed with “Go!” on them. Through these efforts, charity participation has increased year on year, with more than 100 million yen in donations collected during the 2014 Osaka Marathon. Osaka is the second-largest city in Japan after Tokyo, and offers not only a very popular mass marathon (and an elite women’s marathon in January) but also delicious cuisine, shopping, amusements parks, and various other forms of entertainment for visitors to enjoy. A welldeveloped subway system makes it possible to travel anywhere in the city very conveniently. Come to Osaka to experience both the marathon and the cheering.

Penang Bridge International Marathon, Malaysia

November

Sixty thousand runners thronged the Sultan Abdul Halim Muadzam Shah Bridge — the second one to be built from the mainland to Penang Island — for the rare opportunity to run on the longest bridge in South East Asia.

n the process they became part of the “Largest Marathon in Malaysia”, as accredited by the Malaysia Book of Records for fourth consecutive time since 2011.

I

It is a unique event: the only run in the world held entirely on a bridge. It is also the only time of the year when the Sultan Abdul Halim Mu’adzam Shah Bridge is entirely closed off to traffic. ASICS became the title sponsor for the first time in 2014 after being the official apparel sponsor for the previous two years. As a popular brand, ASICS is one of the major attractions to lure runners by providing quality running vests to everyone who took part in the event. Such is the popularity of the run that it attracted 30,000 ‘early bird’ participants as soon as registration opened on 1 March — eight and a half months before race day. 100 lucky draw prizes were given away to winners including hotel stays, flight tickets and a cruise to Phuket and Krabi. As a way to maintain runners’ enthuisasm after they enter the race organisers offered running clinics and a medical

forum in Penang, Kuala Lumpur and Selangor. These workshops helped runners to plan for the run. Subjects that were discussed and demonstrated included different types of running, planning training modules, appropriate attire and dietary planning. By the time registration closed in September runners from 71 countries had entered. More than 60% of registered runners were from outside of the state of Penang, including from other parts of Malaysia, neighbouring countries, and from all over the world. First off on race day were the 9000 runners in the full Marathon, at 01.30. The flag off was performed by the Chief Minister of Penang, The Right Honorable Mr Lim Guan Eng, as runners got underway with a spectacular display of fireworks. The 18,000 Half Marathon runners followed at 03.00 and 28,000 10km runners at 06.00. Last to start were participants in the Designer Village 7km Fun Run. In between race starts, runners were entertained by a concert and fashion show by Titan called “My Time Is Now”. Some of the best local artistes from Continued on page 33

Elite runners on the bridge

Kuala Lumpur and Penang entertained the crowd throughout the night and early morning. The prize giving ceremony was presided over by the Governor of Penang, T.Y.T Tun Dato’ Seri (Dr.) Haji Abdul Rahman bin Haji Abbas, The Chief Minister of Penang, Penang State Ministers and various Government representatives. Proceedings ended with a lucky draw after which 62-year old foundry worker, Mr Ong Poh Soon, who had participated in the 10km Run, drove away in a brand new Honda City. Over 500 police personnel took care of the security of the runners and maintained a smooth flow of traffic. Medical officers from Penang Hospital and volunteers from the Red Crescent and the St John’s Ambulance Brigade were stationed along the entire route to ensure that any runners in distress received prompt medical assistance. A total of 15 water stations were set up along the bridge, serving water, isotonic drinks, bananas and bread for the runners. Prayer rooms (Surau) were also available for Muslim runners. Most runners from outside Penang had planned to spend a few more days in the area to enjoy the

beauty of the island’s capital city George Town — a UNESCO Heritage site, along with its vibrant culture and world famous cuisine. From awe-inspiring architecture, non-stop shopping, and mouth-watering cuisine, Penang is an authentic taste of the real Asia, where laid-back charm is woven into a tapestry of culture, heritage and natural beauty. The UK newspaper The Guardian named Penang one of the “Top 10 Must-Visit Destinations in 2014”. This accolade was followed by Lonely Planet naming Penang as the “World’s No 1 Destination for Food”. The Penang State Government has always strongly promoted sporting events as an integral part of their push for a “Safer, Cleaner, Greener and Healthier Penang”. The Marathon is part of a larger goal to make Penang, through culture and sport, a holistic international and intelligent city. See you at the Penang Bridge Half Marathon on 14 June 2015 and the next Penang Bridge International Marathon on 22 November 2015.

Thanks and friendship

“Thanks and friendship, 20 years after the earthquake” was the theme of the 2014 Kobe Marathon, and it literally shone through from the start. A sea of yellow-gloved runners in the full marathon provided the backcloth for the Mayor, in a striking red cap and jacket, to fire the starting gun at 9:00 sharp. Taken together they represented a sunflower: the symbol of the city’s regeneration. ou wouldn’t think that just 20 years ago, on 17 January 1995, Kobe was devastated by the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake. Standing at the Marathon start line in the shadow of the modern City Hall skyscraper, with a gentle breeze and the sun shining, there was no visible trace of the charred and destroyed buildings or the suffering caused by the earthquake. But it cannot have been far from the hearts and minds of the thousands of supporters, volunteers, and runners at the race who experienced the tragedy that fateful year. This year’s marathon was to thank all those from Japan and overseas who supported and contributed so much to the rebuilding efforts. It was to build links of friendship and extend omotenashi (a truly Japanese concept which is often translated as “hospitality”) to visitors to Kobe. And it was to show the world the beautiful city which has risen from the ashes. Continued on page 37

Continued from page 35 The race takes the runners west through the city, in more or less a straight line, until two 90-degree turns take them past the iconic Tetsujin 28 monument in Shin-Nagata, an area that was particularly hard-hit by the 1995 earthquake. The finish line for the 1,783 quarter marathon runners comes just as the full marathon course starts to hug the coastline, and this year an impressive 97.9% of the quarter-course participants reached their destination. But the day is far from over for the full marathon runners, who can see the course stretch out in front of them and enjoy the serene beauty of Kobe’s scenery. The water lies to the left and mountains to the right as they continue west towards the impressive Akashi Kaikyo Bridge. When it comes into sight, they know the turnaround point is getting closer. The world’s longest suspension bridge is just before the 18km point, and runners get close to it before taking a U-turn to head back east along the coast towards their final destination on Port Island. The Kobe Marathon started in 2011, but Kobe has had a long history of long-distance races. The city

boasts the longest relationship with marathons of any in Japan, being the starting point for the KobeOsaka Marathon Race held in March 1909, the first long-distance race in the country to bear the “Marathon” name. At that time such events were reserved for serious athletes but, as Japan has entered the running boom in recent years, marathons have become more accessible to young and old alike. The Kobe Marathon is no exception.

With a generous time limit of 7 hours keen runners from teenagers to octogenarians took part in 2014 and the percentage finishing was 97.8%, the highest in the race’s history. A staggering 86,516 people applied for just 18,000 full and 2,000 quarter-marathon places — runners were already winners just by getting to the start line. But don’t let this discourage you from applying: entries from overseas are accepted automatically, not subject to the lottery after which Japanese applicants wait several impatient weeks before learning if they have been accepted or not. As the reach of marathons has expanded, so has the support. The 4th Kobe Marathon brought 610,000 people out to cheer the runners on, 40% of the city’s 1.5 million inhabitants. From the very start to the very end the course is lined with supporters clapping, cheering, and shouting “FIGHTO!”; not to stir up trouble but to keep the runners going, as in Japanese the word means “Do your best!”. The support and feeling of community sets Kobe’s race of Thanks and Friendship apart, and it is clear that the whole city is spurring on every participant. Trains blasting their horns, posters of support by local schoolchildren pasted along the route, and even fishing boats with well-wishing flags hoisted high to lift the spirits of runners looking out to the sea. Runners are treated to wadaiko (Japanese drum) performances, cheerleading, Chinese dragons, brass bands and elementary school students dancing on trampolines along the way; all doing a fine job of distracting them from the aches and pains inevitable when running a marathon.

www.kobe-marathon.net The generally flat course has one particularly steep point — the ascent of the Kobe Ohashi Bridge which peaks at 37km into the race. At the top, you

are rewarded with a view of the finish line less than 1km away. But this is as the crow flies; as tantalisingly close as it comes, the path snakes off course and demands that runners keep going those extra few kilometres to make it up to a marathon. To compensate, there is a special facility in place: a boat which sprays a fine mist of cooling water over participants. The finish line finally comes back into view and this time it’s for real; the streets buzz with excitement, as runners’ bodies and minds surely do, with the prospect of crossing the line. The first man to do so was the Kenyan Haron Malel, setting a new course record of 2:13:45 and smashing his own personal best by four minutes. The 20-year-old Hiromi Saito came in as first woman with 2:38:24, just two seconds in front of second-placed 19-yearold Riona Ishimoto. The 2014 Kobe Marathon was an event of excitement, an event of passion, but also one of remembrance. A true event of thanks and friendship. Distance Running | 2015 Edition 1

Race previews Novi Sad Half Marathon, Serbia 29 March 2015

ovi Sad is Serbia’s second city after Belgrade, with a population of around 500,000. It lies just 70km north-west of Belgrade’s Nikola Tesla Airport, along the E75 Budapest–Belgrade Highway (it is 300km south of Budapest). The city is the University centre of the Vojvodina region in the northern part of Serbia, and plays host to two major races: the Novi Sad Marathon (held in October), and the Novi Sad Half Marathon (29 March 2015). Both races attract more than 1000 runners and start and finish in the same city centre location, in front of the City Hall.

N

The Half Marathon course is completely flat and goes through the old part of the city past the Orthodox Church and then along the banks of the river Danube. Runners pass the historic Pertovaradin Fortress (dating from 1692) and go through the University centre and some of the newer parts of town. Novi Sad is well known for the quality of its wine and very tasty food. Accommodation in small, pretty hotels is very affordable and bargain restaurants abound. For sightseeing it is worth exploring Fruska Gora, on the other side of the Danube, a wonderful hill well known as a natural beauty spot and for its famous vineyards and very old monasteries. Those runners who decide to run the Novi Sad Half Marathon will be able to enjoy the hospitality of the people and to take part in an interesting race. The city is peaceful and calm, with a relaxed way of life – an ideal place to come for a holiday.

RUNNING INTO HISTORY

40 years of R-bies Inc.

BIG IN JAPAN Everyone knows that the Japanese nation has a love affair with the marathon. But that emotional connection, perhaps unique to Japan, still needs to be nurtured. Read on below for an insight into how this happens. n Japan running was as an industry long before it was elsewhere. Including the USA where the ‘running boom’ launched. Fred Lebow freely admitted that he was stumbling in the dark when he took the New York City Marathon out of Central Park and onto the streets of the five boroughs, but he somehow emerged on the bright side of those roads.

I

Yet in Japan, literally the “Land of the Rising Sun”, marathon running was such a neat psychological fit that any agency which could bring it all together would be taking a great step forward for the sport worldwide. R-bies Inc. is an operation that encompasses publishing, entry and timing services, race organization and more. They have stood at the forefront of an industry with a one-of-a-kind reach — from the amateur fun runner all the way to the Olympic medalist — and celebrated their 40th anniversary with a party at the Cerulean Tower Tokyu Hotel in Tokyo’s fashionable Shibuya district on 1 December.

At the elite level Japan’s men, and particularly the women, have won a string of Olympic and World Championships medals stretching back for decades. Apart from Kenya and Ethiopia Japan is the only other country to have had ten men running sub-2:10 for the marathon in one year. Domestically elite racing is a massively popular spectator sport, with live TV broadcasts of races televised nationwide almost every weekend from fall to spring and the Hakone Ekiden, a two-day university men’s road relay race starting and finishing in downtown Tokyo every 2 and 3 January, drawing TV audiences in the tens of millions. Japan’s small elite marathons likewise pull in large TV audiences as well as serving as aspirational lifetime goals for driven and talented amateur runners.

40 years of R-bies Inc.

guests including 300 everyday runners invited from among RUNNERS subscribers and RUNNET users. More than 30 journalists attended a press conference on the 40 years of history shared by R-bies Inc. and the Japanese running world. Special guest Carlo Capalbo of the Czech Republic’s Prague International Marathon spoke on current trends in the global running scene as well as the keynote presentation in the Sports Event Session. Tokyo Marathon race director Tad Hayano, Takao Takamura of the Lake Yamanaka Road Race and Nikkei Newspaper sports writer Seiichi Yoshida took part in a panel discussion on the impact and contribution of running events to local communities and internationalisation.

Continued from page 47 At the amateur level running has always been big in Japan, but the launch of the Tokyo Marathon in 2007 set off a revolution that has seen an explosion in participation, particularly among women. With a field of over 30,000 Tokyo’s entry lottery easily pulls in more than ten times that number of hopeful applicants, a success that has inspired new large-scale marathons across the country in Osaka (see feature on p.25), Kobe (see feature on p. 35), Kyoto, Nagoya, Fukuoka, and Yokohama. And there will be many more to come. No other country has a running culture as vibrant and expansive at all levels of the sport. For the last 40 years R-bies Inc. has played an active role in the growth and development of the Japanese running industry. Its flagship monthly RUNNERS magazine, now Japan’s market leader by a distance, began publication in 1976. It targeted the amateur market but uniquely catered to both the six-hour plus fun runners who flocked to the Honolulu Marathon every year and to the upper echelons of the amateur ranks. Founder and editor-in-chief Yukiko Shimojo ran the first Tokyo International Women’s Marathon in 1979, and the magazine has long featured a “My Training” series of interviews with amateur men who succeeded in breaking 2:30 for the marathon. Every year it also publishes rankings of the top 100 men’s and women’s marathon times by single-year age categories in a popular supplement to the magazine. It is a point of pride for amateur runners all over the country who strive year upon year to make those lists. Along with the success of Runners, R-bies Inc.’s RUNNET online race guide and entry and results service has grown to become Japan’s market leader with 1.7 million registered users and 25 million page views monthly. In addition to calendars and regional guides to help users find races RUNNET’s innovative features include a Race

Along with the launch of R-bies’ new RUN FOR THE FUTURE logo and corporate identity, the party featured an R-bies Expo that showed off the latest services for client races. Twenty celebrities and Olympians posed for pictures to introduce the new RUNPHOTO 2.0 service that automatically uploads runners’ race photos to their Facebook pages. Other innovations on show included the Ouen Navi service that allows users to track runners in real time, the Dore Hashiru app that helps users to find races, and the Yuzureru cancellation service to facilitate transferring entries to other runners.

Report section that allows users to rate their experiences at races on details from aid stations to scenery to crowd support. Scores are compiled and the highest-ranked events are given special distinction as the top 100 most popular races in the country, helping them to attract more entrants in future years. In tandem with RUNNET the R-bies subsidiary RECS race timing service has grown to become one of the world’s biggest, handling more than 2 million finishers a year. The massive growth of the amateur running market in Japan since 2007 and extensive experience of providing services for client races has made it possible for R-bies Inc. to get involved in organizing races of its own such as a popular 30km event geared towards people training to run the Tokyo Marathon.

The AIMS booth at the R-bies Expo was another popular attraction. Already claiming 20 member races within Japan, AIMS’ Japanese-language pamphlets detailed the benefits of membership and drew great interest from officials from races across the country. Former AIMS President Hiroaki Chosa congratulated R-bies on their contribution to the expansion and development of the Japanese running market and expressed his hopes for continued success. Within the next 10 years Tokyo will host the 2020 Olympics and more and more Japanese marathons will provide exciting new destinations for international marathon tourists. The Japanese running industry is set for further growth, and R-bies Inc. has assumed a commanding position to enable and support that growth.

At its anniversary party R-bies Inc. celebrated its first 40 years and kicked off its plan for the next 10. Twice the size of its annual award ceremony and year-end party, this year’s event hosted 600 Distance Running | 2015 Edition 1

Doha, Qatar The IAU 100km World Championships came to the Middle East for the first time. The venue was the Aspire zone in Doha, a part of the city devoted entirely to sport. The course was a 5km circuit within the facility. Two hundred runners represented a record 38 countries for these championships. A Masters 100km Championships and an inaugural Championship for the Gulf Countries were run concurrently. Vasily Larkin shared the early lead with Nojo Hideo. The chasing group contained most of the pre-race favourites: Steve Way (GBR), Giorgio Calcaterra (ITA) and Jonas Buud (SWE), along with a dozen other runners, including Max King of the USA. Temperatures were in the mid to low 20s but it was a brave move for Larkin to lead so early, and he was slowly pegged back. King took the lead at around 60km and Buud chased from the back, coming on strongly in the third quarter of the race to eventually get up into second place

Defending champion Amy Sproston was next to hit the front but in turn lost the lead to the 100km specialist Vrajic.

Conditions were even hotter than expected as temperatures rose to 30°C, so times were slower than in previous years. Great Britain’s Phil Anthony ran with Makaza for the first 35km, but over the next 5km Makaza opened up a one-minute gap. Anthony regained some ground in closing stages, but Makaza kept ahead to win by 45 seconds Harm Sengers of the Netherlands ran a negative split to take third.

5 October 2014 Guayaquil Marathon Ecuador Marathon

Katarina Beresova helped to pace the women’s race and in doing so won the half-marathon in new personal best (second fastest ever Slovakian). A trio of African runners followed her through in 1:13:40 but the favorite, Lydia Rutto, pushed ahead of the Ethiopian duo Lemelem Hachem and Halima Beriso after 35km to win comfortably, 26 seconds outside her personal best. She had missed her flight in Nairobi and arrived a day late but said that it did not influence her result. Slovak marathon titles went to Boris Csiba 2:29:03 (11th overall) and title defender Ingrid Petnuchova 2:51:15 (4th overall, her 6th title). Over all races and categories there was a record entry of 10 000 runners from 45 countries. Attending this 90th anniversary celebration of the oldest marathon in Europe were special guests Hansjorge Wirz, European Athletics Association President and AIMS President Paco Borao.

Helped by by pacemakers Matthew Kimutai and Albert Matebor, and by the good weather (11.5C, no wind, cloudy), the leaders passed halfway in 1:04:20. While other sub-2:10 runners faded, only Brighton 2013 winner Dominic Kangor hung on to finish second, two minutes behind Chepkwony. “In 2010 we were three runners together until the end. It was tougher today as I was alone after 30km and felt cold” said Chepkony. Defending champion Patrick Korir finished fifth.

Women’s winner Irene Chepkirui Makori set a new event record on a first-timer friendly and interesting new course which included the INEA Stadium — one of the Euro 2012 football venues. 1500 children took part in accompanying races and 20,000 people visited the Poznan Sports Fair Expo. A Volvo V40 Cross Country car went to the winner of the marathon lottery and one runner won a weekend stay at the Stockholm Sheraton — sponsored by the Poznan Sheraton.

Ethiopia’s Girmay Birhanu and Fatuma Sado were winners of the 34th edition writes Mirko Jalava. Birhanu, fastest in the field and race favourite, became the third successive Ethiopian man to win the race. By contrast, Sado was the first overseas women’s winner since Great Britain’s Debbie Noy back in 1991. Starting from Tiananmen Square there were seven runners in the men’s lead pack after 10km and two fewer by 15km as Kenya’s Samwel Maswai led with a 44:55 split. Ethiopian trio Birhanu, Abebe Degefa and Debebe Tolossa along with Kenya’s Eliud Kiplagat Barngetuny were running just a stride behind Maswai. Maswai weakened but was replaced by Solomon Bushendich and the fiveman group reached reached 30km in 1:31:39. After 35km (1:47:53) Birhanu and Degefa broke free and quickly opened up a big gap. They remained together until the last 500m when Birhanu kicked clear. Fatuma Sado grabbed her fourth in 10 marathons. In third, 21-yearold Gong Lihua won the Chinese title in personal best with the world junior best holder (2:22:38 in 2008) Zhang Yingying rather short of that form in fourth. The race has won unwelcome notoriety as many of the estimated 30,000 participants — although none of the elite field — were running with face masks to combat a blanket of smog which had descended. The marathon’s organizing committee said late on Saturday that postponing the event would be difficult because of all the

Then, with only 4km to go, Laban Korir and Tariku Jufar came into view and flew past the leaders. Korir later said that a pain in his calf had slowed him, but in the final kilometre he ran away from Jufar to claim the win: “After 30km I felt something tender in my legs so I decided to set my own pace and that was okay but I was looking back and saw Jufar was behind me. I was worried because I knew he had won some races and I thought he might beat me.”

19 October 2014 Medio Maratón Valencia Trinidad Alfonso Spain Abraham Cheroben ran a world leading time and set a Spanish allcomers record, leading three others under the hour. He is the ninth successive Kenyan winner of the race, which has acquired a deserved reputation for fast times thanks to its flat course through the historic city centre and port area. Runner-up Kenneth Kipkemoi also set a personal best. Cheroben and Kipkemoi move up to equal fifth and 13th on the world all-time list. Asked about the possibility of tackling a marathon sometime soon, Cheroben said: “My only goal in the near future is to break the half marathon world best.” The leading group went through 5km in 13:57 and the pace even speeded up slightly in the second 5km so that an all-Kenyan quartet of Cheroben, Kipkemoi, Matthew Kisorio, and Titus Mbishei passed 10km in 27:40. Kisorio pushed the pace in the middle stages but Cheroben always looked comfortable and just before 15km he started to pull away, extending his advantage all the way to the line.

A new record of 26,700 runners participated in all events, 5260 of them in the marathon coming from all Canadian provinces, 42 US states and 50 other countries. An innovative You Tube broadcast was livestreamed all over the world with commentary by Eurosports’ Tim Hutchings. The men’s field had targeted the course record (Derissa Chimsa’s 2:07:05 from last year) and although they remained committed at halfway the cold temperatures and blustery wind eventually forced a slowdown, but one which included some exciting racing. Pacemakers took the leaders through halfway in 1:03:15 but the pace slowed as they turned uphill along the Bayview extension. When they dropped out at 30km Kenya’s Peter Some surged ahead with Patrick Terer alongside him.

Mulu Seboka of Ethiopia, the 2008 Toronto winner, emerged victorious in the women’s race in a new personal best time. Although she crossed the line with her usual broad smile she collapsed shortly afterwards and was taken to the medical tent. Through the latter part of the race it was her friend and compatriot Amane Gobena, the 2009 winner, who had offered the biggest challenge but she faded in the last 5km to finish fourth. “The weather was a problem and because of that I didn’t make a good time,” said Seboka, “But still it was okay. For sure if the weather is better I can get a better time.”

Two-time world cross-country champion Emily Chebet won the women’s race in a course record after going quickly to the front with just Joyce Chepkirui for company. The pair went through 5km together in 15:37 and 10km in 31:40,10 seconds ahead of the chasing group.

Chebet, like Cheroben, then turned in an outstanding final 6km to finish more than a minute in front of Muriuki, while Chepkirui slumped to fourth. More than 10,500 runners finished.

Abu Draes sat in the lead group of five in the early stages, but pulled away from countryman Fathi Aldyat with 30km completed. Mohammed Mohammed had been in contention to halfway, but then fell off the pace. Sarah Kebaso was out on her own for the entire race, but ran a consistent pace to set a new course record time. Sudan’s Hanoyea Hasballa, in second, only moved up to the marathon distance when flight problems delayed the remainder of the elite field. A half marathon using two laps of the same course was introduced for the first time. Including the mass 10km race over 8500 runners took to the roads to experience the beauty and history of the Jordanian Capital and to raise funds for the run for a cause charity project.

Last year’s Kenya’s Mark Kiptoo was outsprinted in the last few hundred metres, but this time turned the tables on his younger rivals. A lead pack of 14 (excluding the pacemakers) went through halfway in 1:02:32 as requested by the race organisers but there was some very uneven running during the first half of the race, with the first 10km covered in a very quick 29:24 but slowing down after 15km (44:13) which carried over into the second half of the race. Twelve runners reached 30km in 1:29:14 but between 30-35km, several dropped back, including last year’s winner Vincent Kipruto and the highly-rated Ethiopian junior Tsegaye Mekonnen. Six were still in contention at 35km (1:44:21). By 40km only four remained but Tebalu Zawude lost contact soon after to leave Kigen and Yegon heading the 38-year-old Kiptoo by a few metres. Kiptoo used his track speed (12:54 5000m) to kick past his countrymen as the first six finished within 40 seconds of each other. In ninth Arne Gabius debuted with 2:09:32, the first sub2:10 time by a German since 1990 and the third fastest by a European this year.

BMW Frankfurt Marathon Germany

Half marathon Thousands of spectators basked in sunny but still favourable running weather while cheering more than 20.000 runners in the three different events writes Tomo Sarf. In the process they generated a great sporting atmosphere. For the first time the Marathon runners were doing only one lap, which extended the course to cover all the most scenic parts of the city — with the finish in the old city centre. The men’s winner, Ishmael Bushendich, equalled the course record and proved the new course just as fast as the old one. With this 19th edition Ljubljana demonstrated that it is fast becoming one of the must-do road races in Europe, and much greater numbers are anticipated for the 20th anniversary event in 2015.

26 October 2014 Venice Marathon Italy Ethiopia claimed a winning double at the 29th edition, but the times were slowed by strong winds writes Diego Sampaolo. The women’s winning time was the slowest ever, 17 minutes adrift of the course record. The men also set off at a very restrained pace. Robert Ndiwa, who was pacing to 25km, passed 10km in 31:17. Ketema Mamo closed him down at 15km, pullling away from the chasing group of three. The race then continued at a modest pace: reaching halfway in 1:05:52 and 25km in 1:18:08. Mamo was alone in the lead after 25km and continued to pull away. The 20-yearold went through 30km in 1:31:50 before crossing the 4km Liberty Bridge, which links Mestre to Venice. The effort took its toll on Mamo in the last section of the course, which is the hardest part of the race. Runners cross 14 bridges in the final 3km before passing through the Piazza San Marco and by the Palazzo Ducale to reach the finish in the Riva dei Sette Martiri. Mamo reached 40km in 2:07:01 but, visibly tired, ran the last 2.2km at four-minute pace - although his victory was never threatened. Former Italian national marathon champion Giovanni Gualdi moved through the field in the closing stages to take second. In the women’s race training partners Gedefa Motu Megersa and Konjit Tilahun broke away from the rest of the field early and led through halfway in 1:21:14. Tilahun went ahead at 25km and ran alone for 17km to win by a huge margin of almost 12 minutes. Megersa struggled in the final stages but held on to second place. 80

27 October 2014 SSE Airtricity Dublin Marathon Ireland For the first time Dublin Marathon attracted a field of over 15,000 runners, including more than 4,000 from outside Ireland. In all 47 countries were represented. The event featured a Viking theme to mark the 1000th anniversary of the Battle of Clontarf (now a suburb of Dublin). The Vikings who had founded the city in the 9th century were defeated there and expelled from Ireland in 1014. But the Scandinavian hordes were back for this 35th edition, with many running in Viking battledress. This time the citizens of Dublin gave them a warm welcome. The course is a single loop, relatively flat, starting and finishing in the city centre. Three waves, 10 minutes apart, ensured a smooth start for all runners.

Phoenix Park, Europe’s largest urban park, is home to wild deer as well as Dublin Zoo. Runners go right through the middle of it between 510km. In near perfect running conditions Eliud Too (Kenya), a surprise late entrant, won a close men’s race while Esther Wanjiru ensured a Kenyan double by defeating last year’s champion Maria McCambridge by a similarly narrow margin. McCambridge had the consolation of running a personal best at the age of 39. The Lord Mayor’s Medal was presented to 83 years young John Collins, who ran his 30th consecutive Dublin Marathon this year. Mark Ennis of SSE Airtricity made a presentation to Tony Mangan, who took the last step of his incredible 50,000km run around the world when he crossed the finish line in Dublin. Another Guinness world record was set when 30 members of the Hughes family from Westport, County Mayo, completed the marathon. In 1980 Dublin hosted the first mass participation marathon in Europe. London followed suit in 1981. The Dublin Marathon was the brainchild of one man, the late Noel Carroll, Irish 800m Olympian and Public Relations Officer of Dublin City Council. From modest beginnings it has grown to become one of Europe’s biggest marathons. The 36th edition will be on 26 October 2015.

Despite the rain that appeared in the later stages of the race more than 4000 runners finished, smashing the previous participation record in Portugal.

Stephen Mokoka and Tigist Tufa both improved the course records, by 18 seconds and 75 seconds respectively, writes Mirko Javala. Mokoka became only the second man to defend his title in Shanghai. The 29-year-old South African powered away from Ethiopia’s Abreham Cherkos and Kenya’s Stephen Chemlany in the final kilometres. Mokoko has run seven career marathons - four of them being in Shanghai. Tigist Tufa became the fifth successive Ethiopian women’s winner. She has lowered her personal best by 19 minutes in just 20 months. From 2:40:45 early in 2013 she improved to 2:29:24 in New York last year before cutting almost eight minutes from her best in 2014.

In temperatures of well over 20C Kandie sliced 18 seconds from Baldini's mark to improve his personal best by more than five minutes. Kenyans swept both men’s and women’s podiums, although the women’s race was much more closely contested. Naomi Maiyo defeated defending champion Nancy Rotich by around 100m.

A record 13,000 runners entered the Athens Marathon, run on the original course of the 1896 Olympic Games from Marathon to Athens. Only the first 10km run near the coast are flat: after that, from Nea Makri where thousands of spectators line the course, a tough switchback climb begins. Eight men were in the lead group at halfway, reached in 1:05:52. Just before the course summit at 31.5km the two pacemakers dropped out and Kandie pushed the pace with only Raymond Bett was able to follow. The Athens winner of 2010 and 2012 managed to close the gap but Kandie continued his relentless pace, covering the 5km section from 30–35km in 14:52. Bett was by then beaten, but Kandie ran the next 5km even faster with 14:49. He had started with a personal best of 2:16:12. After a half marathon split of 1:20:23 three women were still in a group at 35km: Naomi Maiyo, Nancy Rotich and Kidist Fiseha Tedla. The Ethiopian struggled in the final stages and was overtaken by Linah Chirchir, Rotich took the lead but approaching 40km Maiyo came from behind and overtook her The defending champion had to settle for second.

With Morocco’s Mohammed Blal and another Ethiopian Damte Taye just 20m behind the course record of 2:11:14 looked vulnerable. It was still possible at 30km, with Girma and Godana running together and Blal 24 seconds back, but the pace slackened. Godana led Girma, who had been unwell between 32–33km, by 15 seconds at 35km,.

9 November 2014 BDL Beirut Marathon Ethiopia’s Fikadu Girma and Mulahabt Tsega triumphed in a race started by Ethiopian running legend Haile Gebrselassie, writes Phil Minshull. Girma posted the second fastest men’s time ever in Beirut, while Tsega, in her marathon debut, broke the old course record by more than two minutes. Former record holder and two-time winner Seada Kedir came in third.

Girma recovered from his stomach problem to catch Godana at 38km and then go ahead. Pre-race women’s favourite Zemzem Ahmed dropped out at about 10km but four women: Tsega, Kenya’s Monica Jepkoech, two-time former winner Kedir and a third Ethiopian Makida Abdela, went through 20km together in 1:11:11. From 25km Tsega and Koech started to go away from the other two, and after 34km Tsega started to drop Koech. Jepkoech finished 1:35 down but was still inside the old course record and took more than two minutes off her personal best. Organisers estimated there were approximately 37,500 participants from 94 different countries in the marathon and a variety other races on the day.

Square meant that the race finished almost on top of a hill at the Jan Meda racecourse.

16 November 2014 Turin Marathon Italy

As many as 23 men stayed together well beyond halfway (reached in 14:13) before starting to break up on the first hill in the seventh kilometre. Passing 7km in 20:22, Bekele looked comfortable at the front of the group. 8km was reached in 23:33 as the steepest hill on the course loomed. Bekele opened a 15m lead on Adugna Takele (second last year) and Azmeraw Mengistu. Approaching 9km Mengistu came past Takele and momentarily took the lead on entering Jan Meda for the final 600m off-road section. But Bekele re-took the lead with 400m to go.

The women’s race developed in a similar manner but at a relatively slow pace and with more runners left in the mix at the end. Kiplagat, who had earlier forecast a 69minute time for herself on account of not yet having recovered from the Chicago Marathon six weeks before, nevertheless had the legs to win with a furious final 400m. The first eight men broke 59:30, and the first six women finished within six seconds of each other. Behind them 10,000 others flooded across the finish line.

Guye Adola, whose previous best was a third-place finish at the World Half Marathon this year in 59:20, set a new course record. World record holder Florence Kiplagat won the women’s race with a strong final 400m in what was a slow, tactical race.

23 November 2014 Great Ethiopian Run 10km

A large group of men passed through 10km in 28:06 and continued to run together for much of the race. It was only in the final few kilometres that Adola and World Half Marathon Champion Geoffrey Kamworor forced an advantage over the others. Adola, who has only emerged internationally in the past year,

Ethiopia Azmeraw Bekele made it two wins out of two with his victory, repeating his success of 2010. Wude Ayalew went one better, becoming the first three-time winner in the event. Her previous victories came in 2008 and 2009. Times were among the slowest in the race’s 14-year history but the current course includes three tough climbs in the second half of the race, held at an altitude of 2600m. As last year, the non-availability of the traditional race venue in Meskel

The first move in the women’s race came just after 6km when defending champion Netsanet Gudeta, Ayalew and Gebeyanesh Ayele started to break clear. Ayele dropped back at 7km leaving Ayalew to fight it out with Gudeta on the final hill from 8km back up to the finish. Ayalew made a decisive move 1500m out and maintained her six-second advantage to the finish. Ayalew’s first win in 2008 was a breakthrough leading on to national team selection for the Beijing Olympics and a bronze medal at 10,000m at the 2009 world championships. Further back, Olympic triathlon champion Alastair Brownlee (GBR) finished in about 40 minutes. Behind the elite competition around 35,000 participants took part in the race which had been jointly started by four of Ethiopia’s Olympic champions (Haile Gebrselassie, Derartu Tulu, Kenenisa Bekele and Meseret Defar) together with Kenya’s world marathon champion Edna Kiplagat. Kiplagat was impressed with what she saw: ”I like the way everyone is having fun. Many are walking, some are jogging, but they are all enjoying it. We need something like this in Kenya.”

In excellent conditions, with the temperature at 8C, 30 runners passed through 5km in 15:16 before the pace picked up to average 3mins/km up to halfway (1:03:37). Pacemakers then dropped out and the remaining runners slowed before local runner Masakazu Fujiwara pushed on at 23km. The leading group was still 20-strong and it was only after 30km (1:31:10) that they broke apart as Bat-Ochir kicked ahead. Makau and Raji Assefa had pulled back to him as all three passed 35km in 1:46:23. The persistent BatOchir tried again at 37km, but although momentarily ahead Makau chased and passed him before reaching 40km. Assefa finished strongly to also come past Bat-Ochir who nonetheless posted a personal best and new national record, improving his own mark by 10 seconds. Fujiwara finished fourth and as first Japanese home staked a claim for a place in the Beijing World Championships next summer.

Breaking away from Mongolia’s SerOd Bat-Ochir at 38km Makau became the fourth successive Kenyan to win the race and recorded his 5th victory in 11 marathon attempts.

7 December 2014 Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore Singapore Kenneth Mungara, 42 years old, used his experience to show a clean pair of heels to runners 20 years younger. He stayed with the lead group only until 10km before taking off to eventually finish two and a half minutes clear. Singapore’s hot

and humid conditions kept times slow — over five minutes slower than the course record of 2:11:25 set by Luke Kibet in 2008. Mungara also won in 2010, and has won nine of the 15 marathons he has run since 2007 following his late competitive debut in his mid-thirties. Waganesh Amare was only entered at the last moment, as a replacement. She turned up the night before, barely slept due to the 05.00 start, but coped with everything her rivals could throw at her, and then took a minute off them in the final 3km. Haile Gebrselassie had done the rounds as the race ambassador in the previous few days, and found conditions in the 10km too hot and humid - to handle. As the temperature topped 30C he lost out in the final stages to the Kenyan pair of Solomon Keter and Thomas Maritim.

“We are proud of the success the marathon has achieved in organization, participation and media coverage. The Marathon will continue to spread the message of a healthy lifestyle and the art of volunteering,” confirmed HRH Princess Dana Feras, who deputized for HRH Prince Feras Bin Raed, the chair of the Run Jordan Board. Over the past four years the event has initiated an awareness and participation in road running. Most growth has been in the 10km, with the first 7km run through the idyllic new Ayla Golf and Residential resort.

12 December 2014 Ayla Red Sea Half Marathon Jordan Over 2000 runners converged on the southern Jordanian city of Aqaba for the Half Marathon and associated 10km and 4.2km kids race. The event is attracting an everincreasing number of foreign touristrunners keen to experience the many nearby attractions that include the ancient city of Petra, the tranquil wind-carved beauty of Wadi Rum with its connections to Lawrence of Arabia, Red Sea diving and more within the highly stable and secure borders of Jordan. Defending champion, Ra’fat Zboun used cool running conditions to best effect on the flat fast course, opening up a lead of 500m over Ayman Suradi. Bashar Raheel ensured a domestic clean sweep. Sudan’s Hanouya Hasballah completely dominated the women’s race, leaving her nearest contender 20 minutes behind.

On this tough course, in hot and humid conditions, 62-year old twotime Olympic marathon runner Calvin Dallas showed how it’s done. Early on three runners were stridefor-stride over one of the most scenic and historic pieces of geography one will find anywhere. After reaching to the easternmost point of the course with St. Thomas, St. John and British Virgin Islands as a backdrop to the north, Dallas and Ben Appleyard still together, but Dallas then forged ahead to defend his title. Bridget Klein also successfully defended in the women’s race, finishing fourth overall. Last year a few from the “50 States Club” ran the race; this year it was representatives of “Marathon Globetrotters”: 62 year old Robert Bishton and 65-year old Rich Holmes did private battle, with Bishton prevailing. The 40th Virgin Islands HalfMarathon attracted the fastest road runners in the Virgin Islands, with Juan Robles successfully defending his title. and Ruth Ann David running second-placed Shane Degannis close in winning the women’s race.
