AIMS News

President’s message

“Distance running, what is the future?” and “Doping threats in distance running” were the two main subjects addressed.

As we see increasing numbers of runners taking hold of their cities by practicing the healthy and beautiful sport of running we at AIMS feel that apart from ‘fostering and promoting’ distance running it is also our responsibility to address the current and potential threats that may be faced by race organisers .

Our events should grow in harmony with their host cities so that together we build sporting and social events for the whole community. The growth in registrations, the increase in visitors and the quality of services should be managed with the purpose of creating a civic example within our cities.

The XXI World Congress of AIMS just held this past November 2016 in Athens offered a chance to address these concerns. The audience of AIMS member race directors and the expert knowledge and social leadership of speakers generated new ideas and new tools to face these organisational challenges.

We hope that our marathon and distance running family feel stronger and remain determined to keep our healthy and friendly sport as the first choice of people who appreciate what it offers in terms of quality to their lives and fairness to their sensibilities. Paco Borao

Doping is probably the biggest threat to our sport. It feels like a whip falling on our shoulders every time we suffer it in our races. On this the Congress heard from opinion

PRESIDENT EMERITUS

Hiroaki Chosa

leaders from different countries who advocated educational and sanctioning strategies and further expanding our knowledge on this important issue.

AIMS News

21st World Congress of AIMS Delegates at the 21st World Congress of AIMS held in Athens on 10–11 November heard a progress report on AIMS’ growth and activities since the last Congress was held in May 2014 along with presentations from AIMS partners MarathonPhotos.com and Runnet Global. They also heard from a new AIMS Partner, the International Institute of Race Medicine, on behalf of which Chris Troyanos gave an informative presentation on “Building a Medical Infrastructure – from Budget to Deployment”. Participants then went on to consider the future of distance running with presentations from IAAF Road Running Commission Chair Carlo Capalbo, European Athletics Vice-President Jean Gracia, BAA Boston Marathon Chief Executive Tom Grillik and Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon race director William Ko. In a series of discussion groups on the same

theme participants examined future possibilities in terms of: maintaining close relations with city authorities to preserve their access to major city streets; boosting the potential of races for running tourism and consequent local economic impact; considering what enhanced services may have to be delivered to maintain runners’ interest in their events; and considering what enhanced security measures may have to be adopted to provide for their safety. On the second day Alessandra Ramella Pairin gave a highly informative presentation on “New Technologies for Live Broadcasting of Distance Races” detailing how in 2012 the Turin Marathon, faced with huge fees demanded by the state broadcaster RAI, managed to upload a self-broadcast to the then brand-new 4G network at much reduced expense. Makis Asimakopoulos then presented a detailed account of how ‘Athens Marathon — the Authentic’ had

Best Marathon Runner Awards 2016

managed to grow from a modest race of about 3000 runners to a significant international event with huge foreign participation and a combined field 60,000 — and consequently making a major favourable impact on the Greek economy.

MESSAGE from the Greek National Tourism Organisation, AIMS PATRON: Athletics and tourism share common ground: sports include travelling and tourism contains sport. In 2016 the bonds between them have strengthened further. This is what running events such as Athens Marathon the Authentic show. For the years to come tourism and sport are expected to grow bigger. The Greek National Tourism Organization’s strategy will be to continue to be to focus on, among other things, Sports Tourism.

Eliud Kipchoge and Jemima Sumgong were named as AIMS’ Best Marathon Runners of the year on behalf of its 410 member races spread throughout 110 countries and territories. Their outstanding achievements over the past year, including convincing victories for each of them in both the London Marathon and the Olympic Marathon, were recognised at the fourth annual AIMS Best Marathon Runner (BMR) Awards reception held in the birthplace of the Marathon in Athens, Greece on 11 November 2016.

Voting took place for the new Board of Directors with Arpad Kocsis (Budapest) and Vaclav Skrivanek (Prague) replacing retiring Board members Mark Milde (Berlin) and Bruno Boukobza (Semi Marathon Int’l de Nice). In the final session incorporating the 10th AIMS Marathon Symposium Dr Kevin Dutton examined what motivates people to cheat and suggested various internal and external factors which are crucial to understanding how the tendency to cheat can be minimised. British Olympic 800m runner Diane Modahl followed with her personal experience of the far-reaching consequences of a ‘false positive’ result in testing. Yanis Pitsiladis concluded by outlining ‘An alternative testing process”, and said that the technology is already in place to support a test which would be far more effective in detecting EPO abuse among distance runners.

New race members Since the last edition of Distance Running was published the following new members have joined AIMS: ■ Ston Wall Marathon (CRO)

AIMS partner MarathonPhotos kindly provided photographic services to the 21st World Congress of AIMS, including a group photograph of all participants at the start line of Athens Marathon – the Authentic which has been distributed to all attendees.

AIMS Social Award

AIMS Green Award

The Social Award highlights races working towards achieving the United Nations Millennium Development Goals (eradicating extreme poverty and hunger, combatting disease, decreasing child mortality, promoting gender equality and the empowerment of women and ensuring environmental stability).

Designed to reward best environmental practice in marathon events the AIMS Green Award was awarded to the GöteborgsVarvet Half Marathon based upon criteria including promoting environmentally friendly practices, how volunteers contribute to the success of the project and the ability for the race to educate younger generations about the benefits of sport and environmental protection.

The Munich Marathon received the award on the basis of their ‘Laufend integrieren’ or ‘ongoing integration’ project directed towards assisting refugees from the recent humanitarian crisis to integrate into German culture. Working with the social authority of the City of Munich running groups

were set up for both local runners and refugees. They met once a week from August to October in the buildup to the race with 32 refugees participating in the Marathon. Over 100 refugees were engaged around the race weekend preparing the race packages, handing them out and stewarding the route. Bracelets branded with ‘Laufend integrieren’ were sold at the sports expo. The money raised from the bracelets in addition to funds from sponsors meant the Munich Marathon donated €30,000 to the social authority for Munich to distribute as they see fit. Munich Marathon will continue these efforts through to the next race in 2017.

GöteborgsVarvet is the largest half marathon in the world with over 64,000 participants. In an effort to tackle CO2 emissions they provided free public transport for all participants for three days during the week of the race. 75% of runners used this offer to collect

AIMS Children’s Series The final AIMS Children’s Series race to be held in Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu-Natal was staged on 13 November from the FNB Wadley Stadium in Edendale, a township in the city of Pietermaritzburg. The race coincided with the 10th Greater Edendale 10km road race and both were organised by the Comrades Marathon Association as part of its Corporate Social Investment Initiative. Close to 2000 children between the ages of 9 to 15 from schools around the township took part. They ran proudly for 5km along the streets of Edendale and for may it was their first experience of a road race o and for nearly all it was the first time that they had received a t-shirt and a medal for doing so. As they finished the race they were applauded by the runners who had run the 10km and many community members who came to support the event. Well after the race kids from the township could still be seen wearing their AIMS CHILDREN SERIES t-shirts with pride and with their medals hanging around their necks.

The Comrades Marathon Association handed two electronic prizes to the two schools that brought the greatest number of school kids to participate in the event. The school kids also had an opportunity to win individual lucky draw prizes. On behalf of all the children, the Comrades Marathon would like to thank AIMS for the noble idea of the AIMS Children’s Series race. Events like this go a long way in motivating kids to take up the sport of athletics. It is from these grass root events that future champions grow. The final AIMS Children’s Series event to be held in Zimbabwe took place on 17 September at Riversdale School in Featherstone. School staff assisted the organisers from the Women’s International Fellowship (WIF). Last year’s event raised sufficient funds to cover the installation of a borehole which has significantly improved the quality of drinking water and given the school a much more established feel to it. All the children who participated received T-shirts and medals and winners were given trophies. A locally-recruited sponsor, NetOne (a telecommunications operator) gave the senior school runners pens as gifts.

their numbers and travel to and from the event. The organisers have implemented many other environmentally conscious projects such as serving vegan and vegetarian food, collecting waste and donating left over clothes to charity.

Overwhelming demand required Tshirts to be given to all children participating in the events of the day, including the choir, culture club and catering. For the senior school races were split between boys and girls but some of the primary school races were mixed. The longer races had to be held promptly to avoid the heat of the day. Races ranged in length from 100m for under-9s to 3km and 7km for over-14 girls and boys respectively. In all nine separate races were held. In between the races the children provided entertainment through the well-rehearsed choir, the Drama Club, cultural dances and poetry recital (which included hip-hop). Activities were rounded off with a tug of war. The race has become the key event on the school calendar, with proceedings funding building renovations and additions. The races have inspired the development of sport in the school. They have introduced more sports into their curriculum and currently play handball, netball and soccer with cricket and rugby likely to follow. The event was dedicated to WIF founder and visionary Jane Aichi Olamikun Banjo who fell ill during the 2015 races and eventually died in October 2015. The races were a fitting tribute to her legacy. Events in the 2017 series will be held in Khanivali (IND) and Quito (ECU) during June and in Erbil (IRQ) in October.

Lifetime Achievement Award The AIMS Lifetime Achievement Award was made to Haile Gebrselassie for his accomplishments in cross-country, track and road running over more than two decades and his continuing contribution to the sport of athletics. Haile became elected President of the Ethiopian Athletics Federation only days before receiving his award in Athens.

22nd World Congress announced The 22nd World Congress of AIMS will be held in Tallinn, Estonia on 6–8 September 2018.

Register of doping offenders The US company Road Race Management maintains a listing of current and past road running and track and field athletes convicted of dope testing offences at: www.dopingsanctions.com Race organisers — or interested individuals — can check groups of athletes with a single search by copying and pasting an entire elite athlete list into the search box.

AIMS News

New concept for registration AIMS has signed an agreement with the innovative market-leading Japanese company R-bies as their official ‘Registration Partner’. This agreement will offer AIMS member events and millions of runners around the world access to a new registration platform “RUNNET-GLOBAL” launched jointly by AIMS and R-bies. At the moment races have their own various ways of handling entries and many of them are available in only one language. Language issues can make it a challenge to enter overseas races. The new partnership between AIMS and R-bies will help to overcome these challenges by creating a registration platform that will complement existing race registration methods and will seamlessly connect runners to races around the world through a multi-language platform. It will create a global window for runners to access races in over 100 countries and territories. The registration platform is due to launch in early 2017 and will be accessible free of listing charges. Runners will be able to use the registration platform to easily find and register for AIMS member races. With the race registration process becoming so much simpler participants will approach international races in a whole new way.

Hiroaka Chosa AIMS President Emeritus, Paco Borao President of AIMS and Jiro Hashimoto President R--Bies at the official launch ceremony in Tokyo

R-bies is a pioneer of the Japanese running industry. They published the first Japanese running magazine in 1976 called “RUNNERS” and also launched “RUNNET” in 1997, an entry platform which currently boasts over two million users and 2000 registered events in Japan. R-bies is now seeking to make “RUNNET” global.

Jiro Hashimoto, President of R-bies, comments: “Our mission is to expand races globally and create an opportunity for runners to interact with one another. By using this Platform runners can access race information and register for races all over the world.” ■ http://runners.co.jp/english/

Samsung Amman International Marathon, Jordan 28 October 2016 Ammanies woke up on race morning to wet streets and a cool breeze as a result of heavy overnight rain. This did nothing to deter committed runners making their way to the start line for the 06.00 flag off for the eighth edition of this major festival of running in Jordan’s capital city. The Marathon started in front of the Greater Amman Municipality building before the hustle and bustle got up in the downtown area and was run over a sloping four lap course through streets that run past ancient monuments and through the dusts of history to end at the city’s Roman Amphitheatre — the largest in the country — that rises above the surrounding buildings. The cool misty weather provided the conditions for peak performances. Kenya’s Benjamin Kiprop achieved his second Amman victory after running side by side with his countryman Victor Kimeli for 35km before pulling away for a winning margin of 500m. Up-and-coming Jordanian marathoner, Ahmad Muhiasen took third and ducked under the 2:30 barrier. Jordan’s Olympic Marathoner, Methqal Al Abbadi and Bashar Raheel followed him home. As the morning sun began to rise half marathon runners gathered at Raghadn Bridge, an old railway station, to start the half marathon at 07.30. They merged with the marathon runners half way through their course to compete side by side as they ran in the valley between two of the seven main hills of Amman. Each of these mounds helps to define a different neighborhood within the city. Thousands of years old, Amman has managed to retain both its authenticity and its small town charm. The city’s historical inheritance is etched into its streets and the best way to get a sense of it all is to run them.

A theatrical experience Amman’s 7000 years of history is etched into its streets — and the best way to get a sense of it all is to run them The 10km fun run participants had their chance when they started at 09.00 from the main gate of the first sports city, which bears the name of late King Hussein. Over 10000 people participated in this race which took runners through what is currently known as Western Amman with its modern architecture, five-star hotels and highly urbanised character down to the finish line in central Amman. The 10km route allowed participants to uncover a trove of unmissable experiences, as they strolled the streets of several of the seven hills that Amman is built upon. Starting from Sports city roundabout to Shmeisa — the business and

banking area — runners made their way down Wadi Saqra Street and then up to Jabal Amman’s third circle (one of the few roundabouts left from the eight circles for which Amman is famous). From the third circle runners took the steep downhill road to Ras alAin and joined the marathon and half marathon runners, but on a separate part of the road, as they headed towards the finish line at the gate of the Roman Amphitheatre built into the side of one of those hills. The awards ceremony was held at the Roman amphitheatre built to accommodate 6000 spectators. It is one of the best-preserved such structures anywhere in the world and many cultural and national events are held there. With national songs and to great cheers from the



Samsung Amman International Marathon, Jordan 28 October 2016

crowd the winners were felicitated by HRH Prince Firas Bin Raad, the event patron. Anyone attending the ceremony, if they glanced up, could see one of the main Roman ruins in Amman; Jabal al Qal’a, or the Amman Citadel, where more than 7000 years of history is showcased in its crumbling pillars, arches and staircases. There are also the ruins of the Temple of Hercules — a testament to Amman’s claim to be one of the world’s oldest continuously inhabited cities.

RESULTS Marathon

Runners from over 25 nations competed in the races. Prince Firas Bin Raad himself completed the 10km event. The standard of performance in the Amman Marathon is rising each year and with the establishment of running groups in both Amman and the Red Sea port of Aqaba an increased number of local runners are now graduating to the half and full marathon distances.

Shanghai International Marathon, China 30 October 2016

The Shang-ma experience Chinese surge of enthusiasm for marathon sees participants taken “Beyond Running”

Zhao Wen, the vice mayor of Shanghai, and Du Zhaocai, vice president and general secretary of the Chinese Athletics Association, together fired the starting pistol to set 38,000 runners from 86 countries and territories off from the Bund Bull start line. Waving goodbye to the run of wet weather during the previous weeks there were perfect conditions for the runners. Filled with expectation runners — some of whom were dressed in bizarre costumes — threw themselves forwards from the starting line to launch themselves into their journey around the central area of the metropolis. The 21st Shanghai International Marathon has been making every effort to realise its core idea

of “Beyond Running”: thinking like runners; treating them with sincerity; and implementing the event with professional spirit. This year the route was again adjusted to offer the best possible experience for the runners. During the Xintiandi section runners no longer have to take a U-Turn at South Huangpi Road but can instead run directly from Madang Road to South Huangpi Road past the site of the First National Congress of the Chinese Communist Party on Xingye Road. After covering such a long distance as 42.195km, it is with relief and pleasure that runners approach the ceremonial finishing line in Shanghai Stadium. As 28,000 runners cross the line with their arms raised high they enjoy their moment of honour with the sound of the cheering squad alongside. Thanks to the special

spectator seats place right beside the stadium track they are able to share the touching moment with their family and loved ones. In the current surge of enthusiasm for marathon running in China runners have high expectations of the Shanghai International Marathon as a race of consistently good quality and reputation. Highlighting its runner-oriented service this year organisers have increased the availability of portable toilets, sponges, water, sports drinks, supply stations, snacks and volunteers as means of maintaining the high standards of the race. At the finish half and full marathon runners are handed a big finisher’s towel together with medals for 10km and 5km runners. The finish line has been moved from Cauldron Square to the infield of Shanghai Stadium so that the more extended post race space can better facilitate the flow of runners finishing the race: they no longer have to stop so abruptly. After entering the Shanghai East Asia Exhibition Hall, there are 300 masseurs available to ensure that the runners finishing the race receive the best possible service and everyone remembers the “Shangma experience” with satisfaction.

The concept of Shang-ma encompasses the full abundance that the city has to offer: its spirit and impact. Locals are joining in and experiencing the race in various ways while the vitality, heat and positive energy bursting out from the race deeply affects everyone living here. The Shangma slogan: “a city of running, a festival for the people” gets the idea across: the Shanghai International Marathon is becoming a keenly-anticipated festival for the whole city. It is the full consideration of runners’ feelings by the organisers that fills the race with vitality. From the DIY design of the race T-shirt to the customisation of the post-race photo, the personal Nike video and tailor-made finish video provided by Shanghai Sports TV, the organisers have fully taken into consideration all the individual needs of runners in order to provide the best experience for them.

Similar care is taken of facilities along the course. With multiple music stations and cheering squads there is no loneliness of the long distance runner at any stage of the race. This year, with the help of the Shanghai Municipal Education Committee, 18 excellent school orchestras were selected to cheer runners along the course. This has also created a great opportunity for Shanghai schools to project themselves from an international stage. Whether it is the Marathon weekend and carnival, the Shang-ma first-aid training sessions or the recruitment of volunteers, the ‘Shang-ma’ experience carries the official commitment of the city to the image and spirit of the event while creating the opportunity for citizens to join in and contribute to the race in their own unique ways.

Maratón Valencia Trinidad Alfonso, Spain 20 November 2016

Always striving towards a new ‘best’

Exceptional Valencia experience and super-fast course leads runners to magical walking-on-water finish Photo: Extremephoto

Valencia is famous for its Mediterranean climate and cuisine, which have always attracted foreign tourists. Over the past few years, the number of tourists who visit the city has increased substantially. Not only do they come to enjoy the good weather and relax, now they also want to participate in sport and in particular to run. The reason is because it’s the Trinidad Alfonso EDP Valencia Marathon. After 36 editions this event, organised by the city’s running club SD Correcaminos and the Valencia City Council, has become a major attraction for athletes who want to run an autumn marathon in a warm climate and a perfect atmosphere. There are a great many cities to choose from when it comes to running a marathon but coming to Valencia is a good decision.

Photo: Extremephoto

The Valencia Marathon has been ranked the best race in Spain by the Royal Spanish Athletics Federation (RFEA) and has also been awarded an IAAF ‘Gold Label’. Valencia and its marathon have become a favourite fixture in the international running calendar. The last edition of the Trinidad Alfonso EDP Valencia Marathon was the fastest in Spain in the female category. Valary Jemeli Aiyabei beat the previous record (02:26:57) by more than two minutes. Victor Kipchirchir was more than a minute outside the course record (2:06:13) but he ran a personal best by more than two minutes which shows that the Valencia course is exceptionally fast. First among the national elite runners were Rafa Iglesias (2:16:18) and Marta Esteban (2:30:47). Esteban also bettered her personal best. She also won the Regional Marathon Photo: Extremephoto

Men Championship which was incorporated within this race. Aiyabei’s and Kipchirchir’s performances demonstrate that Valencia is a city designed for runners to fly along its streets. This is backed up by this year’s figures deeper down the field: 23 men ran under 2:20 and more than 1100 under three hours. Very few marathons can boast a record such as this. More than 27,500 runners took part in the Marathon and the associated 10km event and thousands of people lined the route to cheer them all the way to the finish line. These figures tell a story but they cannot fully explain the impact the Trinidad Alfonso EDP Valencia Marathon has on those runners who take part. Words cannot express how meaningful this race is for them nor the emotions that they feel when they start a race with 180 cheering stations that lead them on towards a magical finish. The last few dozen metres of the race is on a blue-carpeted causeway specifically built each year to allow runners to feel as if they are walking — or running — on water as they cross the pool outside the modernistic architecture of the ‘City of Arts and Sciences’.

person makes the Valencia experience exceptional. The most painstaking attention to detail is the key for the success of this race. Reading, watching or listening about the marathon is fleeting but feeling it live is forever. The main concern of the organisers is to provide

every runner with wonderful memories from the race so that when they go back home it lives on with them. Because each and every one of them contributes to the continual improvement of the Valencia Marathon. On the days before the race, a runner's expo is held in the City of Arts and Sciences. Expo Deporte is an innovation which has taken Valencia is to the forefront of the European running scene. The event is designed so that both athletes and sports enthusiasts can enjoy the marathon experience even if they do not take part in it. There are many activities programmed for those two days. More than 140 stands display brands and offer shopping, talks, presentations, sports events, music and cuisine for all ages and tastes. More than 40,000 people visit the expo every year and they make the most of a memorable weekend, with events such as the Paella Party, Mini Marathon, Breakfast Run and IMPULS-A Valencia. After the success of the Valencia Marathon this year runners are looking forward to signing up for the next edition which has been confirmed for Sunday 19 November. Registration is now open at: www.valenciaciudaddelrunning.com There are two major international races held each year in the ‘City of Running’: the Trinidad Alfonso Valencia Half Marathon takes place a month before the Marathon. Next year it will be on 22 October 2017. Both races aim to maintain the same organisational standard which has led to both the Marathon and the Half Marathon being named by the RFEA as the best races at their respective distances.

Panama International Marathon, Panama 27 November 2016

Running by the ruins Along the bay and past the ruins of old Panama: if you can run here, you can run anywhere by Fernando Blanco

The alarm went off at 03.00. The race was to start at 05.00 — you have to start early here to avoid the sun. I was out of the door at 03.45. It was drizzling and cool (only 24C) which was a good for what we were about to face. I called for a friend and we were at the start by 04.15. In the city of Panama everything is close by. The motorised policemen heading the race were getting ready. We stretched a little and chatted to relieve the pre-start tension. Then we were called to the line and heard the notes of our national anthem. I could feel a little sweat even before starting — the humidity was around 80%. The gun fired at 05.00 sharp. It was still dark and you could feel the adrenaline of the runners. The race runs in Balboa Avenue alongside Panama Bay and after 3km we enter

what we call the ‘marine stretch’ — a 3km-long bridge built over the bay to alleviate the traffic from the city centre. It’s totally flat and you can feel the sea breeze. We get back onto the wide coast road. There is a slight gradient and in the distance I can see the famous Biomuseum, designed by Frank Gehry, inside which the history of how the Isthmus of Panamá emerged from the sea to unite two continents is told — and how it changed the diversity of the planet. We are through the first 6km and it is still flat but sweat is running off my body. The next hydration point is nearby the Maracana soccer stadium where we make a U turn. On the return my thoughts are on my family and all the training but suddenly I hear the cheers of spectators as we pass over the start line. Spurred on, my pace picks up but we have to run up the Patilla overpass at 15km and I realise that I probably speeded up too much. I adjust my pace as we continue on more irregular terrain. The day begins to clear up but there are still a few clouds to block the sun’s power. The temperature is around 27C and we sweat copiously.

Panama International Marathon, Panama 27 November 2016 very demanding. Past the overpass and I can see the crowd at the finish line. This cheers me up and strength appears from nowhere. Finally I cross the finish line. I thank God and my family, who receive me. This is a moment of pain, happiness and satisfaction. It is a combination of many feelings and sensations. Now I understand why they say: “If you complete a marathon in Panama, you can do it anywhere”. It is truly a challenge.

Entering Avenida Cincuentenario we face a series of small hills. I like these changes of terrain as long as they are not too abrupt. The group I was running with has now reduced to two. Soon we enter Panama La Vieja where you can see the ruins of the old city of Panama which some years after its foundation was destroyed by the English pirate, Henry Morgan. We are now at halfway and the heat is beginning to take its toll; you can see it reflected on the faces of the runners. We enter the leafy high class residential area known as Costa del Este and continue on the main street up to the end of the boulevard to make a U turn. Here you can observe who is ahead and use them as references for your running plan. We pass the 30km hydration point. Up to now they were every 3km but from now on it is only 2km from one to the next. It’s just as well

because we are entering the hardest part of the route as we leave Costa del Este after 34km. I now understand why runners call this stretch “Sal si puedes” (Get out if you can). With 8km to go we are back in Panama La Vieja, I do not see the ruins anymore, only the sign that says 35km. All that counts now is to get to the finish without becoming a ruin myself. We are back to the series of small ups and downs and sun is warming up. I start to feel really tired even though my battle companion begins to fall back. I can barely maintain the pace but I am now entering flat terrain and far ahead I can see a sign that reads 40km. This gives me strength – it’s just a matter of time until I get there. Just one kilometre to the Paitilla overpass: it’s the last rise on the course but at this stage it is

Berlin Halfmarathon, Germany Sun 2 April 2017 The first real highlight of this race is passing through the Brandenburg Gate. Then the course leads straight down the “Strasse des 17. Juni”, a grand boulevard through Tiergarten Park, with the Siegessäule (Victory Column) at Grosser Stern, Germany’s largest roundabout, and through the Charlottenburg Gate (Charlottenburger Tor). At 8.8 km the Charlottenburg Palace, built between 1695–1699, appears on the right. Running the course of the Berlin Halfmarathon gives you free passage — unobstructed by cars — past some of the most impressive sights the city has to offer. The start and finish area is on Karl-Marx-Allee in the former East Berlin where this race was founded. The starting line is near Kino International, one of the more famous movie theatres of Berlin, right opposite the Café Moskau, another legendary landmark of the East Berlin past. The course then passes by Germany’s tallest building, the TV Tower (368m high) at Alexanderplatz and turns left onto KarlLiebknecht-Strasse to cross over the River Spree and pass Berlin’s largest cathedral, the Berliner Dom.

Running along the famous thoroughfare Kurfürstendamm the Wertheim department store welcomes you on the right-hand side between 13–14km, followed by the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church shortly afterwards on the left. This was the centre of West Berlin until reunification in 1989. The course then leads to Potsdamer Strasse running past the New National Gallery, the Philharmonic and the State Library to Potsdamer Platz (17.5 km) with its postreunification architecture and, traditionally, with lots of spectators. After taking a right runners then head down Kochstrasse and Friedrichstrasse past the former US Army border crossing known as “Checkpoint Charlie” (18.5 km). Through Leipziger Strasse, with its East German 1970s-style systems-built prefabricated architecture, and down Gertraudenstrasse the course leads into Mühlendamm, passing by the historical Nikolai Quarter on the left. A little later runners find themselves at the back of the Berlin City Hall. From there you can almost smell the finish line which is visible after you turn right back into Karl-Marx-Allee. After you have received your finisher medal, joined friends and recovered from 21,0975m of agony and joy you will look back at an unforgettable course through the City of Berlin.

30th Belgrade Marathon, Serbia Sat 22 April 2017

Belgrade is well known for excellent cuisine and prices for food, drink and hotels are reasonable. There is an extensive night life — particularly on boats on the Sava and Danube Rivers. Belgrade is placed among the “world’s top ten party towns”. Since 1995 the “Fred Lebow” Trophy has been presented to the winners (both men and women) every year. It is a token of the great friendship that Belgrade Marathon developed with the New York race founder and of thanks for his assistance. In 2017 the Belgrade marathon celebrates its 30th edition including a project called “Legends come back to Belgrade”. Previous event ambassadors such as Carl Lewis, Sergey Bubka, Lasse Viren, Merlene Ottey and Javier Sotomayor will be invited back to promote the Belgrade Marathon and the marathon movement in general as an important healthy and socially responsible activity. A record 8000 runners are expected in the half marathon and marathon and 20000 in the 5km fun run.

Founded in 1988 the Belgrade Marathon quickly became popular but ran into problems during the 1990s as the former Yugoslavia splintered into smaller states. The Marathon is now the biggest sporting event in Serbia. Belgrade is located at the intersection of the Danube and Sava rivers which divide it into Old Belgrade (mostly hilly) and New Belgrade (completely flat). The course starts and finishes in the centre of Old Belgrade but most of the race is run on the flat in New Belgrade. Two of the three climbs come close to the end of the

race. The scenery varies from very old houses to newly-built skyscrapers. Runners pass by the Parliament House and the Old King’s Palace, the headquarters of the Serbian Government and two big parks. The bridge over the Sava affords great views of the Belgrade fortress as runners descend into New Belgrade. Normal temperatures at race time are from 12– 16C but the weather has been warmer — in recent years reaching over 20C and in 2016 hitting a 28C maximum. Belgrade is one of the world’s oldest cities with traces from more than 6000 years ago found on its territory. The Belgrade fortress is located at the river confluence where many invaders landed. The city was destroyed and rebuilt more than 60 times. There are many churches, museums and monuments dating from different eras.

Enschede Marathon, Netherlands 23 April 2017 Photos: René Wolf, rwfoto.nl

The postwar IAAF conference held at the European Athletics Championships in Oslo in August 1946 decided to schedule a Marathon competition between the Netherlands and Czechoslovakia in Enschede the following year. Saturday 12 July 1947 was the big day; 51 participants started, hoping to return fit and healthy to the summery Van Heekpark after 42km and 195m. Of them, 33 runners did indeed complete the race with Eero Riikonen from Finland taking first place. The Enschede Marathon was born. On Sunday 23 April 2017 the 49th edition of the Enschede Marathon will take place — the oldest marathon in Western Europe. Nowadays the race hosts top athletes as well as thousands of runners from home and abroad who all get to experience what it’s like to finish on Boulevard 1945. It’s a marathon weekend that combines top sporting action with a good atmosphere. There are multiple pacing teams at the different distances, varied courses, a lot of music and enthusiastic supporters offering encouragement all along the course. The following distances are offered as part of the Enschede Marathon weekend:

Nagoya Women’s Marathon, Japan 12 March 2017 The Nagoya Women’s Marathon is the world largest women-only marathon listed in the Guinness World Records. It takes place on the second Sunday in March every year. There are 20,000 participants expected of which 3000 are from outside of Japan. The Nagoya Women’s Marathon serves as a qualifying race for Japan’s national team for the Olympic Games and the World Championships, attracting top female athletes from both inside and outside the country. The times of recent top finishers have been around 2 hours and 22 minutes. Apart from global championships the Nagoya Women’s Marathon is the world’s leading competition for elite

women runners. Participation of amateurs and beginners is also encouraged with a leisurely time limit of seven hours allowed. The city of Nagoya is located in the centre of Japan, less than two hours west of Tokyo by Shinkansen (the Japanese ‘bullet’ train). There is also a large international airport, making it easily accessible from anywhere in the world. The route was designed to showcase many of the focal points of the city including Nagoya Castle. The course is wide and mostly flat making it easy to run fast times and set personal bests. The race starts and finishes at a baseball stadium, the Nagoya Dome, where glamorous lighting and music sends runners off

from the start and welcomes them back to the finish. This unique concert-like staging effect of the venue is one of the most distinctive features of the marathon. All finishers receive an exclusively designed necklace by a world-class premium jeweler, Tiffany & Co. The highlight of the race is the finishers’ smiles when, one by one, they are handed a Tiffany’s blue box from men dressed in tuxedos. The Marathon EXPO, a sport themed fair, is held at the Nagoya Dome. Many visitors come to enjoy the various companies’ booths such as cosmetics makers, sport goods manufacturers and others.

Erzurum Half Marathon, Turkey 7 May 2017 Erzurum — the greatest city of Eastern Anatolia — it is presumed was founded around 4900BC. The surrounding region was dominated by various tribes and nations such as the Urartu, Kimmers, Scythians, Meds, Persians, Parphts, Romans, Sassanids, Arabs, Seljuks, Byzantines, Mongols and Ilkhanids. The city and the surrounding region was conquered by Ottomans in 1514 who continued their dominance until 1923 when the Republic of Turkey was founded. A Congress was called in Erzurum in 1919, at which the foundations of Turkish national unity and independence were laid.

Being located near the slopes of the Palandöken Mountain the city has become a focus for winter tourism in recent years. The 2017 Winter European Youth Olympic Festival will be organized in Erzurum in February. This follows on from having been the host venue for the 2011 Winter Universiade Games. The city is home to numerous historically rich works of art and is a cultural centre with major potential for tourism. It lies 1850m above sea level. The second edition of the Erzurum Half Marathon was held on Sunday 22 May 2016. Assefa Bekele (ETH) won the men’s race in

1:08:53 and Mulu Diro Melka (ETH) won the women’s race in 1:16:49. About 1000 runners from six countries participated. The third edition on 7 May will be preceded by an Expo held in the city’s largest square. Ottoman military bands, thought to be the oldest marching bands in the world, will perform Ottoman Empire marches during the Expo. Top prizes in race are US$3000 to the winner in the Half Marathon, US$1000 in the 10km and US$100 in the age group categories from 35 until 75+. Participants should not leave Erzurum without sampling at least some of the other sporting and cultural offerings of the region: skiing at Palandöken; sightseeing via the Kule Café; visiting the double Minaret Madrasah (theology school), the Yakutiye Madrasah, and the Ulu Mosque; rafting if you happen to go to Ispir; vsiting the Tortum Waterfall and Lake if you happen to go to Tortum; and tasting Çag kebap, Su boregi , Ayran çorbası and Kadayıf dolması. Erzurum Airport is only 10km from the city centre. There are daily flights from both Istanbul and Ankara.

An

uplifting journey Each spring the Spanish capital pays tribute to the warrior Philipides and in 2017 it will be the 40th celebration. A testament to Madrid’s heart, the race has achieved ‘Gold Label’ status earned by virtue of the level of performance of its runners and through the quality of the race delivered to all participants.

US). Prior to Rock ‘n’ Roll, Madrid was Spain’s largest marathon with over 10,000 marathoners. In 2017, with the addition of the half marathon and 10km distances, Rock ‘n’ Roll Madrid participation will more than triple with over 34,000 runners touring the magnificent streets of the capital city. Foreign participation now accounts for 25% of all runners In just six years women’s participation has grown from a mere 6% in the marathon to over 28% overall — and 50% in the 10km.

Madrid’s triumph is collective and belongs to the hundreds of thousands of runners who, ever since the first edition in 1978, have taken each stride with determination in a city that offers a challenge that will be long remembered. The marathon organisers MAPOMA (MAraton POpular de MAdrid), is appropriately an acronym for ‘Marathon of the People’. They are a tight-knit sporting family who have steered the running movement in Madrid from hosting a local race in its first year to a cosmopolitan extravaganza in its fortieth. In 2012, Madrid joined the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series and was its first international event (meaning the first event outside of the

Madrid’s marathon course is famously challenging. Finishers justifiably boast that they truly earn their medal. One of them, loosely translated, claimed: “My mother can run a flat course given enough time. Madrid is for the fuerte – the strong”. Distance Running | 2017 Edition 1

There is good reason to feel proud. The Marathon course starts at Los Cibeles fountain, at an altitude of 650m, and opens up with a long, wide stretch gradually climbing along the Paseo de Recoletos. From 14km rolling hills dot the course. There’s a long drag up the incline from 32km to the finish within the beautiful Retiro Park where marathoners manage to find it within themselves to raise a sprint to the finish. Many somehow set personal bests but a world record is a remote possibility. Madrid is not much different to New York — where the experience is as important as the sport. And of course there is the music. In true Rock ‘n’ Roll fashion runners can expect the beat of the drums, ripping guitars and emphatic voices to propel them on their journey. The local bands that line the course are varied and talented. They do not wear a bib number, but they also compete for a title. The winning band receives a trip to another Rock ‘n’ Roll event, where they play along the course — and in

Liverpool at its famous Cavern Club. They strive and sweat along with the runners because sometimes they know a note can change the course of one’s life. They are aware that even if you do not run together, you never run alone.

In the 40-year history of the edp Rock ‘n’ Roll Maratón & ½ there are 40 years of stories too. To tell them all would fill a library but to take just one example: in the 1986 edition a small potato chip manufacturer, Ramiro Matamoros, won the marathon on his daughter’s second birthday and became a hero of the working class. His face appeared in every magazine and newspaper at the time. His saying, “everything is possible in Madrid,” is still popular today. Vanessa Veiga, a mother of three and a champion at three distances who competed in the London Olympics claims that Madrid is special and ‘nothing can match it’. What is most impressive is the courage of the Madridlenos. They have seen the best and the worst of the human race pass before them. They are courageous defenders of democracy who 13 years ago lost 194 companions killed in terrorist train bombings. Less than two months later they stood shoulder to shoulder to let the world know that Madrid stands strong and united against the aggressors. Nine years later, just days after the Boston Marathon bombing, Madrid stood in unity, silently and with arms raised, fingers forming a “B”, to let their brethren know that there is limitless camaraderie among marathons, that in Madrid you have a shoulder to cry on and arms to hold you up. It has been a long and uplifting journey, with far more joy than sorrow. The next edp Rock ‘n’ Roll Madrid Maraton & ½ on 23 April will write chapter 40. We hope you will be with us to celebrate.

43. Hochfelln Berglauf, Germany (5th World Cup race)

President: Bruno Gozzelino Secretary: Pierre Weiss (FRA) Treasurer: Nancy Hobbs (USA) Council Members:

The sun had just started to warm the cold clear autumn morning when a shot from a real historical cannon gave the signal for 40 women and 205 men from a record 20 countries to attack the 8.9km long course with 1075m of elevation gain.

Galia Puhaleva (BUL) Erhan Basoglu (TUR) Andrjrej Puchacz (POL) Tomo Šarf (SLO) Wolfgang Munzel (GER) Member of Honour: Raimondo Balicco (ITA)

The first kilometre on an asphalt road had a moderate gradient but after 2km the course became steeper and the leading group smaller. On the “Alm” at 5.5km, where hundreds of spectators were waiting for the runners, the Eritreans Petro Mamu and Yossief Tekle were already detached. Mamu was not pushing too much and ran with his compatriot until the the last kilometre when he kicked ahead to victory.

Ljubljana's northern outskirts. The 10km course had an ascent of 710m. Victor Kiplangat, runner-up in the junior race at this year's World Mountain Running Championships, led for most of the race until he faded over the final kilometre. Mamu also won the series crown in 2014.

Runaway women’s winner Andrea Mayr was taken back to the valley after the race by Mamu’s coach, a professional paragliding instructor, in a tandem parachute. “What an interesting experience” she commented.

Mayr had already raced to the world title in Bulgaria early in September and won by more than three minutes. That was despite a bad fall which left the former marathoner battered, bleeding and bruised as she crossed the finish line. Her spill came after she glanced at her watch during the last descent to see if she was still on course record pace – she ended up only three seconds short of it.

Ljubljana, Slovenia

WMRA Council are working on the Calendar for the 19th World Cup 2017 series, in which prize money will be awarded for the overall leading positions.

Eritrean Petro Mamu and Andrea Mayr of Austria won convincingly at the final race of the 2016 WMRA World Cup circuit. They were also overall winners of the 18th WMRA World Cup.

29th October 2016

21st IAU 24 Hour Trail World European Championships Geres, Portugal Championships Albi, France The day-night event was run on a 1.1km lap. Dan Lawson (GBR) and Maria Jansson (SWE) won the individual titles with distances of 261.843km and 250.647km respectively. Jansson’s time was a new European best. Six national records, several personal bests and one European Best Performance were achieved. Aleksandr Sorokin (LTU) put in a very gutsy performance for the first 21 hours at one time leading by as much as 18km over the rest of the field but the fast pace caught up with him in the last three hours and he finished sixth. Dan Lawson (GBR) had paced himself carefully through the early afternoon and only moved into the top-5 late in the evening, leaving his winning move until 07.00 in the morning. Ondrej Velicka (CZE) followed a similar strategy to come in second. Defending women’s champion Maria Jansson (SWE) started steady and moved past race leader Antonija Orlic (CRO) after 12 hours, increasing her pace during the night in the cooler temperatures. When the sun came up again she was poised for the win and an European Best Performance. Patrycja Bereznowska ( POL) ran a well-timed race to place herself in the top-5 after 13hours while team mate Agata Matejczuk only got into the top-5 after 17 hours. Both continued to gain on those in front to eventually finish second and third.

2nd IAU 50km World Championships Doha, Qatar The second edition of these championships was run on a 2.5km course around Aspire grounds. Anthony Migliozzi (USA) defended his title after Collen Makaza (ZIM) had taken an early lead along with compatriot Zivanai Portpher Dombojena and Sharabutu Philips (NGR). Race conditions were warm and the fast early pace slowed some of the runners down. By halfway there was a lead group of four as Philips dropped back and Migliozzi and Andrews moved up. At 27.5km Andrews took the lead with Makaza right behind him but Migliozzi having won on this course in 2015, stayed within striking distance and at 35km moved into the lead for good. At the start of the women’s race Deborah Badung (NGR) took the early lead through to 15km with Risper Kimayio in second. Khishigsaikhan Galbadrakh (MGL) and Petra Pastorova (CZE) together chased and caught the leading two and headed the race at halfway. But Kimayio took the lead at 27.5km as Nele Alder-Barens and Amy Clements made gains further back in the field and moved into the podium spots in the last 10km.

IAU 24 Hour Asia and Oceania Championships Kaohsiung, Chinese Taipei Only one Japanese runner stood between Australia and a complete clean sweep at these inaugural Championships. Australia were not to be denied their clean sweep in the women’s race. In the men’s open race Shingo Inoue took top honours with 236.982 km, 1.12 km further than the Championships winner.

South African teammates Ludwick Mamabolo and Rufus Photo took turns leading followed by their three teammates, David Gatebe, Bongmusa Mthembu and Gift Kelehe. Hideaki Yamauchi and Patrick Reagan chose merely to keep the lead group within sight. Yamauchi started to move up after 60km but it was only in the final 10km that he went past Mthembu to become world champion. Reagan waited until 85km to start moving through and struck hard in the last lap to take third place.

In the women’s race the podium placers were in the mix from the outset. Kim Mulder led until 55km when Kirsten Bull and Joasia Zakrzewski went past her as Nikolina Sustic bided her time in fourth. Bull ran steadily at the front with Sustic and Zakrzewski to-ing and fro-ing for the remainder of the race. The Croatian proved the stronger of the two after 80km and went ahead to take second place.

The fiercest battle of the day unfolded on the marathon course between Artem Piddubnyi and a Paralympic athlete Oleh Leshchyshyn. At 34km Artem caught up with Leshchyshyn and just a few kilometres from the finish broke away. However, Leshchyshyn regained the lead in the home stretch to take the win, both runners finishing ahead of last year’s winner Yevhen Hlyva.

Philemon Rono survived a pre-race accident to run away from a strong field. The diminutive Kenyan broke free with 5km to go while Shure Demise became the first woman to successfully defend her Toronto title writes Paul Gains. Rono had suffered an accident with a falling barricade during his warmup and had to consult his management team before he decided to start but within 3km seemed fully recovered. Pacemakers took the group through halfway in 1:03:22 on target to beat Derissa Chimsa’s course record of 2:07:05. But the temperature was 18C at the start and in the second half the humidity proved energy-sapping.

Seboko Dibaba took the lead at about 30km which helped to drop defending champion Isshimael Chemtan but he later explained that: “After 36km my injuries in my groin and my left calf started up. It has been a problem before. I have had two surgeries in 2013 and 2014.” For much of the women’s race Demise led a pack made up of her compatriots Tadelech Bekele, Ashete Bekere and Fatuma Sado. It wasn’t until the final 5km that she managed to scent victory.

While Daniel Wanjiru improved his best time by almost three minutes to set a new course record Meselech Melkamu had an untroubled win in the women’s race. Sammy Kitwara suddenly picked up the pace at halfway and 10 or so other runners followed him including Wilson Chebet (who won in 2011, 2012 and 2013) and Bernard Kipyego (who won in 2014 and 2015). The race began in earnest at 32km when Kirui, Kitwara and Wasihun closed a 6-second gap to catch up with the lead pack. Wanjiru joined them 2km later. In the Vondelpark, with just 2km to go, he surged ahead: “From 39km I knew I was going to win,” he said.

Lebanon Oppressive heat and humidity conspired to deny runners any chance of fast times writes Paul Gains. When IAAF President Sebastian Coe fired the starting gun at 07.00 it was already 21C and reached 25C at the finish. Kenya’s Edwin Kibet Kiptoo proved strongest on the day relegating defending champion Jackson Limo into third place. In the women’s race Tigist Girma was perhaps the only runner to set a personal best with a convincing win against her compatriot Seada Kedir who had won the Beirut race in both 2011 and 2012. “My target was 2:09 but today you cannot run for time,” said Kiptoo. “From 31–32km I looked back and there were no people behind. I was able to increase my lead to the finish.” The pacemakers exercised a great degree of caution due to conditions and reached halfway almost four minutes slower than planned. There were nine athletes in contention at that point but Kiptoo ran the second half much faster to undo his rivals. The women’s race became a solo effort shortly after halfway as 23year-old Girma dropped the entire field including her designated pacemaker who had been expected to accompany her to the finish.“He ran well until his legs hurt and he dropped back,” said Girma. More than 43,000 runners of all ages took to the streets for a variety of events from a 1km children’s run to the full marathon. IAAF President

13 November 2016 French Riviera Marathon Nice-Cannes France Elisha Kipchirchir produced a surprise win in the ninth edition — to take his first victory at his fifth attempt over the marathon, lowering his PB by three minutes in the process writes Quentin Guillon. Konjit Tilahun took the women’s title by a wide margin. Led by the pacemakers, about 10 runners hit 10km in 30:42, reducing to seven by halfway (1:05:02). After the terrorist attack in July, the start had moved from the ‘Promenades des Anglais’ to Allianz Riviera Stadium, making the first part of the course hillier than previous editions with an additional two or three steep climbs. The last pacemaker, Paul Melly, dropped out at 30km leaving five runners in contention including

Podium placers aims-worldrunning.org Kenyans Henry Sugut, Nixon Machichin, Ethiopia’s Azmeraw Mengistu and Kipchirchir. Sugut began to fade at 32km but at 35km, with the other four still together as the pace dropped, Kimutai and Kipchirchir ramped up the pace so that they had dropped the other two by 38km. Kipchirchir began his decisive move with 2km to go and created a gap which he held to the finish. Konjit Tilahun fulfilled her role of favourite to snatch her first win over the full marathon distance. She passed halfway in 1:18:40 and continued at that tempo to win in a time almost 10 minutes outside her lifetime best of 2:28:11 from two years ago.

13 November 2016 Saitama Int’l Marathon Japan A four-woman race after just a kilometre, by the halfway point it was down to a duel writes Ken Marantz. Not long after that Flomena Cheyech Daniel was cruising all alone to victory. She pulled away from Ethiopia’s Amane Gobena after 25km to win in a race record for her sixth career title and first in Japan, where she spent four years from 2007 running for the

Uniqlo corporate team. Gobena, affected by an upset stomach, held on to finish second.

crowd. And Elvis definitely helped. It was much less me and more him tonight.”

On a clear day with temperatures reaching 18C, four Africans formed the top group with two pacesetters as they went through the first kilometre in 3:10. Race officials had set a target time of 3:24 for the pacemakers, and they eventually settled into that pace as the leaders went through 5km in 16:51.

The Strip is closed to traffic two nights of the year – New Year’s Eve and for the GEICO Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas Marathon & ½ Marathon. Thousands lined Las Vegas Boulevard shouting: “The King is here”; “Viva Las Vegas”; and “Thank you, thank you very much”. At 42, Wardian is a three-time Olympic Trials marathon qualifier from Virginia.

“At the beginning the pace was very fast,” Cheyech said. “But after 3km it cooled down. And then after 15km it started picking up.” Cheyech and Gobena had opened up a 13-second gap as they went through halfway in 1:11:50. Then disaster struck Gobena, who had finished second in Tokyo in February in a PB of 2:21:51, the fastest in the Saitama field. “My stomach became very upset from about 21.4km,” Gobena said. The final pacesetter peeled off after 30km leaving Cheyech a solo run to the finish.

13 November 2016 Rock ’n’ Roll Las Vegas Marathon & 1/2 Marathon United States of America On a night when more than 45,000 runners, walkers and wheelchairs athletes toured a packed Las Vegas Strip beneath the glare of casino lights, the GEICO Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas Marathon & ½ Marathon celebrated a fitting winner: Elvis Presley. Running his first race in an Elvis costume Mike Wardian not only won the marathon but set a Guinness World Record for fastest marathon in an Elvis costume. With his black pompadour bouncing off his head, Wardian broke the record by nearly five minutes. Wardian attributed his achievement to “The energy of the

The GEICO Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas Marathon & ½ Marathon attracted runners from all 50 states and 83 countries. The race began in the late afternoon on the south end of Las Vegas Boulevard across the street from Mandalay Bay.

Ethiopia’s Worknesh Degefa was the fastest woman in the field but the race favourite was World Half Marathon Champion Peres Jepchirchir who was unbeaten over the distance since taking the title last March. Delhi proved to be one outing too many for the Kenyan who had said before the race that she had been suffering from blisters on her feet and a cold in the proceeding weeks. Six runners, led by Degefa with her compatriot Ababel Yeshaneh and Jepchirchir running directly behind her, were still in contention up to 18km. Then Degefa pushed hard and spilt up the pack. A tiring Jepchirchir faded to fifth. Men

Kenya’s Eliud Kipchoge made a triumphant return to racing after his victory in the Rio 2016 Olympic Games marathon by winning in 59:44, while Worknesh Degefa ended Peres Jepchichir’s winning streak writes Phil Minshul.

Foiteyn Tesfaye made a winning debut which surprised better-known names in the race. Lumbasi became the first Kenyan male to place in the top three since Nathan Naibei finished second in 2005. Four runners entered the home straight locked together and Gashahun only clinched victory in the final few metres. Gashahun said: “I have competed abroad only twice until now, both times in France. I hope that my win today will give me more opportunities.” Tesfaye’s winning time was one of the fastest in the race’s 16-year history “This is my biggest race victory by a long way and my first race over 10km” she said. Following the two elite races around 40,000 participants were set off in two wave starts giving hope for increasing the capacity of the race in future years.

Ethiopia’s Yigrem Demelash was Kipchoge’s most persistent challenger and matched him stride for stride until 20km at which point Kipchoge edged ahead to a 25m winning margin and a US$27,000 first prize. It had taken only 5km for a compact lead group to emerge — Kipchoge, Demelash and Augustin Choge were paced by John Langat and Ronald Kirui through the first 10km in 28:33 (1:00:14 pace). The lead trio lost their pacemakers after 12km but then increased the tempo enough for Choge’s challenge to falter at 17km. In the final kilometre Kipchoge managed to force a gap but was clearly worried by a possible sprint finish from Demelash and repeatedly glanced back before crossing the line just outside the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium. Six years earlier Kipchoge had taken the Commonwealth Games 5000m silver medal in the same stadium. Behind him Demelash and Choge both set personal best times.
