AIMS articipation in Marathon and distance running events continued to increase rapidly in 2015. This trend is a global phenomenon on a mass scale which organisers are bound to find more and more difficulty in managing and servicing as demand and expectation increase. They must be ready to face and win all challenges coming within our sport and its surrounding environment. There is a special challenge that has emerged more strongly than ever in recent months, shaking the standards according to which race organisers work: that of doping.

“Olympism seeks to create a way of life based on the joy of effort, the educational value of good example, social responsibility and respect for universal fundamental ethical principles”. There is nothing further from sporting values than cheating. As in all social activities, education and justice are the main tools we can use to work towards improving the health of the sport.

The importance of this issue requires organisers to internalise the Olympic Charter’s Fundamental Principle where

Big challenges require a clear and common strategy to ensure a successful outcome, starting with strong

9th AIMS Marathon Symposium The 9th AIMS Marathon Symposium, held in Athens on 7 November, addressed the subject of "Doping threats in Distance Running". The first speaker at the Symposium was to be Kyle Barber, Medical & AntiDoping Intelligence Officer at the IAAF, who submitted his apologies. The keynote speaker at the Symposium was Prof. Yannis Pitsiladis (MMedSci., PhD, FACSM) from the University of Brighton (GBR), speaking on the topic of "A Holistic Anti-Doping Approach for a Fairer Future for World-class Sport: The SUB2 Marathon Project". Professor Pitsiladis noted that "research behind detection is insufficient. The sport needs to have serious investment into anti-doping research rather than token efforts." Prof. Pitsiladis highlighted research he had carried out into blood doping through the use of 'EPO'. The project compared athletes in test situations using EPO in trials in Glasgow (GBR) and compared athletes in the same

test circumstances training at altitude in Kenya. Results showed a significant increase in performance by all athletes in both locations when using EPO and also showed the challenge of detecting it as traces disappeared within 48 hours. He suggested that rather than focus on EPO itself a more effective testing mechanism could focus on the genes that become ‘switched on’ as a result of ingestion. When asked about the temptation to dope Prof. Pitsiladis said that people may see it as a way to help them escape poverty. The Symposium followed up with "A Runner's View" in the anti-doping effort, given by former London Marathon winner and General Secretary of AIMS Hugh Jones. Mark Milde, Race Director of the BMW Berlin Marathon, spoke of the doping abuse which high-profile marathon races must try to combat and some of the measures taken towards this end.

FOUR months ago, on my first day in office as IAAF President, I began a fundamental review of IAAF structures, policies and governance. Despite a turbulent period of forensic investigations, lurid headlines, shocking revelations and allegations that followed that process has continued. We aim to deliver a robust association, transparent and fit for purpose. The IAAF must be member federation focussed and responsive to the needs of athletes, coaches and officials. My mandate began at the conclusion of the IAAF World Championships Beijing. They were spectacular championships played out over nine days to stadiums and streets full of spectators and broadcast to a vast global audience.

On a weekly basis 1.2 million people take part in free, fun filled, 5km runs. By these means the IAAF acknowledges a global responsibility to use the power and reach of athletics to make a positive difference in people’s lives.

competitors. Fusing the two events engaged the local community directly with the championships and brought health benefits to all. Athletics for a Better World, the IAAF’s corporate social responsibility programme, partnered with the United Nations Development Project in Beijing to ensure a diverse cultural and ethnic mix. UNDP encouraged representatives of Beijing’s diplomatic missions to take part in the mass race.

A highlight was the men’s marathon. The world title race also hosted 10,000 recreational runners in a mass 10km. Only athletics offers the opportunity for the general public to rub shoulders with a sport’s elite

Year round Athletics for a Better World’s partnership with parkrun provides another new connection with the mass running movement.

In 2015 participation reached over 6400 out of which almost 200 participants were representing 39 foreign nations. The race is an arena where friendships are made and memories are treasured.

domestic level it was aimed at encouraging Sri Lankan youth and school children to take part in events where they could run alongside international runners. Colombo Marathon was also the vehicle by which the “fun running” culture was introduced to Lankan society and used to promote the concept of ‘healthy society’.

Introduced by Lanka Sportreizen (LSR) the marathon has become a global sports event that attracts runners from around the world. In 1998 the LSR International Marathon was held in Galle. Since then it has been held in Negombo, Kandy, Dambulla and finally in Colombo, attracting more and more runners with every passing year.

The event has 14 categories; male and female senior and veteran categories in the Marathon and half marathon (over 18 for the Marathon, over 17 for the half Marathon) and men, women and schoolchildren (over 15 boys and girls) in the 10km and 5km fun runs.

After the first five editions the name was changed to what it is today — The LSR Colombo Marathon, with SriLankan Airlines as the official airline partner.

The Marathon has been always been about boosting the image of Sri Lanka as a recreational destination, giving visiting athletes the opportunity to immerse themselves in the unique Sri Lankan culture and enjoy Sri Lanka’s warmth and hospitality. At a

Colombo Marathon, Sri Lanka 4 October 2015

Colombo Marathon does not attract athletes for its competition alone. The athletes who arrive in the island take time to enjoy its beauty, either prior to or after the marathon. Some may proceed to the breathtaking interior of the island. From the wildlife parks in the South and the North that are famed for the highest leopard density in Asia to the thickets where enormous elephants roam freely, Sri Lanka offers a wildlife experience that cannot be matched by any other terrain. The country is also home to many ancient kingdoms that continue to hold visitors spellbound. One cannot help but be awed by the unspoilt sophistication of the architectural masterpieces in the Anuradhapura Kingdom. Gigantic stupas that reach for the sky; intricate stone carvings; ancient irrigation systems; the Sigiriya and Dambulla Rock paintings — one an ancient fortress dubbed the eighth wonder of the world with frescos still preserved and the other a temple with the most elaborate paintings of the lifetime of the Buddha, both situated in the Central province within close proximity of each other. The Central Hills are also home to the country’s most venerated place of worship among Buddhists —The Temple of the Tooth Relic of the Buddha. Alongside lies the picturesque Kandy Lake overlooking the Udawattekele bird sanctuary. 14

When in Sri Lanka it is impossible for someone to escape the charms of the Indian Ocean that surrounds the island. Whale and dolphin watching hotspots in Kalpitiya, Trincomalee and Mirissa on the Southern Coast of Sri Lanka have become much sought-after stopovers. For the more adventurous Sri Lanka also offers chances for white-water rafting, kite-surfing, hot air ballooning and the surfing hotspot of Arugambay which knows no time or season. From the widest smiles that adorn the faces of Sri Lankans to the rustic three-wheeler and train rides through tea gardens, anyone who arrives for the Marathon will not return without having experienced the ebb and flow of the island’s life. There is the striking sight of local runners running barefoot, competing alongside those sporting the latest running shoes. For all of them there is an endless line of people who throng the pavements and encourage runners all the way from Colombo to Negombo. This good cheer does not come with labels. A sense of encouragement flows freely and easily for anyone in search of a push from the crowd. This is the story of the Colombo Marathon.

Erbil Marathon, Iraq 30 October 2015

A haven from hostility Unforgettable moments of running and cultural discovery in Iraqi Kurdistan rbil is one of the world’s most ancient cities and has been continuously inhabited by human beings from around 5000 years BC. Sumerians, Assyrians, Babylonians, Persians and Greeks all occupied the city before the Arabs and Ottoman Turks arrived. The Erbil citadel — a UNESCO World Heritage Site — along with Erbil’s Minaret are two distinct landmarks by which this historical city is recognised.

E

The modern-day city is home to 1.6 million mainly Kurdish people although there are also Assyrian, Turkoman, Arab and Armenian populations. It is the capital of the selfgoverning province of Iraqi Kurdistan which has since 2005 existed as a peaceful oasis hardly touched by the ebb and flow of war and conflict further to the south and west.

varied activities takes place throughout the year including sporting and cultural festivals, commercial exhibitions, international book fairs, etc. The Erbil marathon is organised by nongovernmental organisations brought under a single umbrella by Iraqi Kurdistan NGO’s Network “IKNN”. The Erbil Marathon is an expression of civil society’s activism against war and violence, and it is the message from the Kurdish people to the world that they love peace and justice. Despite the desperate economic crisis and instability in the wider region the 2015 edition of the Marathon was organised successfully. It is an event which brings together people from different ethnicities, nations, cultures, religions, beliefs Yasr Mustafa

There are many resorts in Erbil province. During the summer people come — especially those from the strife-torn middle and southern parts of Iraq — to visit these places. A calendar of

and ages. Run under the title “Peace for all: yes for peace and peaceful coexistence”, Erbil Marathon aims to promote love, peace and nonviolence in the Iraqi Kurdistan Region. Runners and peace lovers from all over the world participate yearly in this event. The first edition was held in October 2011 and followed by the second Erbil International Marathon for Peace and Development in October 2012 with participants from 49 countries. Numbers have increased dramatically from 1500 in 2011 to around 7000 in 2015. This outstanding success has established Erbil as the centre of coexistence, brotherhood and fraternity in a region surrounded by hatred, ethnic and sectarian rejection and bloodshed. It was for

such reasons that Erbil was accepted as a member of Association of International Marathons and Distance Races (AIMS) immediately following the inaugural event. Sixty Metre Street is one of the most famous and attractive streets in Erbil. It girdles the city and derives its name from its breadth which allows more space for runners during the marathon. There are many trees lining the sides of the road which offer shade and create a more attractive and spring-like character.

“The Erbil Marathon is a wonderful event and I am very happy to have been part of it. It is a great lesson in self-sufficiency and preparation,” said Olga O’Hara from Russia, adding: “Running around 60 Meter Road four times is not as easy as it sounds, but the thrill of finishing in Sami Abdulrahman Park (created on the site of one of Saddam Hussein’s former military bases) makes it all worth the effort. Happy Running!” October is a lovely month with mild weather — no more than 22 degrees C compared to annual summer highs of twice that number. It was chosen as the best time of the year to hold the marathon. For Stefan Samuelsson, a participant from Sweden, the mild conditions and the cheerfulness of the people watching and encouraging the runners made the marathon “the most intense and beautiful ever.” Kurdistan is more accessible than other neighbouring countries in the region. Visas, if needed, are easy to get at the Erbil International Airport (built in 2015). There are direct flights to many regional and European

capitals (Dubai, Amman, Beirut, Istanbul, Vienna and Berlin). Accommodation is cheap and comfortable. In addition to this, Erbili people are known for being friendly and open to other cultures. Kealan Delaney, from Ireland, put it this way: “Thank you to everybody in Kurdistan, Iraq for a wonderful time. I really enjoyed my stay in Erbil. The people are so friendly and welcoming and I hope to be back soon. Congratulations to all who organised, competed in and just watched the Marathon. It was such a great experience and something I will treasure as a memory for the rest of my life. My first marathon — in Erbil. Thank you Erbil!’. All marathoners, runners and peace lovers are invited to choose the Erbil marathon as their next adventure and add some unforgettable moments of running and cultural discovery to their memories.

Ravenna City of Art Int’l Marathon, Italy 8 November 2015

In Ravenna, when the marathon opens the doors to all the treasures of the town, you can breathe the scent of history

A treasure of the town avenna, located in the north of Italy and known as the ‘City of Art’ has an international Marathon which opens the doors to all the treasures of the town. Sport and culture merge into an exhibition that is one of a kind only available in the former capital of the Western Roman Empire: in Ravenna you can breathe the scent of history.

R

On a perfectly sunny day over 5500 people stood at the startline last November savouring the sights and emotions that assailed them before the river of runners started flowing inexorably along the route. It was a day of celebration for the whole town which, swarming with athletes during the run, also welcomed them as tourists coming to discover the beauties of Ravenna. The city became filled

with colour and passion for a healthy sport full of genuine values. 6575 people registered for the two days of races promoted by the Ravenna Runners Club of which almost 3000 took part in the marathon and half marathon. The fast, flat course has an unchanging appeal: it is the only one in the world to thread its way past seven of the eight monuments in the city which have been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO: the Mausoleum of Galla Placidia, the Baptistery of Neon, the Arian Baptistery, the Basilica of Sant’Apollinare Nuovo, the

Archbishop’s Chapel, the Mausoleum of Theodoric and the Basilica of San Vitale. The racing bib acts as a passe-partout to the town, because you simply show it to the ticket office during the three days of the Marathon and you can visit three museums for free: the MAR (the Art Museum of Ravenna), the Domus

Ravenna City of Art Int’l Marathon, Italy 8 November 2015 of the stone carpets and the TAMO — all the adventure of the mosaic. An agreement has been signed with the Diocese which allows athletes and their relatives to access the diocesan monuments at a reduced price. Along the course runners can experience Byzantine history through the art and the charm of a town that was the capital of the Western Roman Empire. Those who come for the first time are always amazed by the beauty and the magic you feel in this wonderful place. Even those who return continue to be astonished and become more and more appreciative of the race and the town which is liveable, people-oriented and open to the world. The race has become increasingly international with 34 different nationalities taking part in the latest event representing all of the five continents. It is also becoming more prestigious and widely appealing. Two years ago the start and finish were moved to the Via di Roma — which fronts the Museum of Art in Ravenna and is one of the main roads in the historic centre. This was done to provide a more welcoming finish and allow spectators gathering along the finish straight line to applaud and cheer runners over the last kilometre of their quest. Apart from the competitive marathon and half marathon races there are three fun events: the ‘Good Morning’ over 10.5km, the Family Run over 2km on Saturday and the Urban Walk over 5km. There is a place for everyone: not only for athletes and running enthusiasts but also for those who are not yet ready for long distance running or who simply prefer walking.

Women Italian Championships which was a just reward for all the hard work and commitment of the Ravenna Runners Club over the years. The marathon and half marathon offer a unique finisher’s medal — a hand-crafted mosaic by the Ravenna artist Annafietta. Since 2011 the medal has become a jewel you can wear around your neck and a prestigious collectible for participants. Each medal is unique, allowing runners to bring back home a piece of the history of Ravenna. Every year the artist chooses a different detail of one of the Byzantine mosaics of the town. Of the 800 volunteers 300 of them were from local schools and thanks to their enthusiasm the event benefited from a touch of youthfulness. The Ravenna Marathon has supported two charities for the past several years: one euro per registration received in each race goes to Mowat Wilson disease (a rare and severe genetic affliction with no treatment at present and still little diagnosed, affecting young children with difficulties in walking and using their hands) and to Famiglie SMA (an association of relatives of those afflicted with spinal muscular atrophy). 22

Gore-Tex Philadelphia Marathon, USA 22 November 2015

Philadelphia’s own

very November nearly 30,000 runners from across the United States and around the world descend on the ‘City of Brotherly Love’ to take part in the Philadelphia Marathon and Half Marathon. The mostly flat course and ideal autumn temperatures make it a favourite for runners looking to complete their first marathon, set a new personal best or qualify for the Boston Marathon.

E

As these participants make their way toward the majestic Benjamin Franklin Parkway they are greeted by volunteers in brightly coloured sweatshirts who guide them towards the starting corrals which lie close to the steps of Philadelphia’s Museum of Art — made famous in the Rocky film series. Just after sunrise the race announcer prepares runners for what promises to be an unforgettable experience on the streets of one of America’s most historic cities. The Marathon was established in 1994 by the City of Philadelphia and a group of dedicated runners and physicians at the Rothman Institute. In the past Philadelphia distance races were largely independent ventures held on the outskirts of the city but the new focus under the City of Philadelphia (led by then-Mayor Edward Rendell) was to shift the race to a course within the city limits and to showcase the City’s many assets. Today the Philadelphia Marathon is the only major U.S. marathon to be owned and operated by the city authorities. Along the full marathon course runners pass by some of Philadelphia’s most iconic sites and several key landmarks from American history. On the Benjamin Franklin Parkway Philadelphia’s City Hall and the well-known “LOVE” statue loom into view. By 3km

participants have reached the city’s Historic District within which lies Elfreth’s Alley, America’s oldest continuously inhabited residential street. After spending some time on Columbus Boulevard, a normally busy thoroughfare along the Delaware River, runners turn back towards the city centre. At 8km Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell are easily seen from the course. This portion of the race also features dense crowds of fans along Chestnut Street. Next up is the hip neighborhood of University City — where the University of Pennsylvania and Drexel University are located — and a number of landmarks in West Philadelphia. At 13km the

course passes by Philadelphia Zoo, America’s first, which now houses more than 1300 animals. Shortly afterwards runners see another piece of Philadelphia history — Memorial Hall. Located at around 15km, Memorial Hall was built as the art gallery for the 1876 Centennial Exposition, and since 2008 has housed the Please Touch Museum. The course becomes scenic as it follows the Schuylkill River back towards the Philadelphia Museum of Art for the half marathon finish. Half marathoners bear right to the finish line and full marathoners continue along the Schuylkill. They pass the historic Laurel Hill Cemetery, which serves as the final resting Distance Running | 2016 Edition 1

Women place for many prominent figures including past mayors, U.S. Congressmen, military leaders, and famed announcer for the Philadelphia Phillies, Harry Kalas. On the way to the Manayunk neighborhood of Philadelphia runners cross Falls Bridge to reach the other side of the Schuylkill River. Once they make it to Manayunk marathon participants face a few hills but also benefit from some of the greatest crowd support on the course. The return towards the finish line along Kelly Drive can be long and quiet, so runners need to stay focused and take advantage of the flat terrain that makes up the last few miles. Approaching the Museum of Art the crowds get thicker and roaring cheers from fans fill the air. The electric atmosphere of the final mile is unrivaled: participants feel as if they are Olympic athletes when the Philly crowds bring them home to the finish line.

Philadelphia is known for having some of the most devoted sports fans in the world, and their boundless enthusiasm takes in the Marathon. Tens of thousands line the course to support all of the runners. More than 20 official Cheer Zones are set up throughout the city, marking key spots for fans to gather and support the runners. The area around the start/finish line is jam-packed with family and friends, providing a lively atmosphere for participants as they begin their journey and again as they feel the joy of crossing the finish line. Although Philadelphia is the fifth largest city in the country and the Philadelphia Marathon is one of the ten largest marathons in the United States runners consistently note how this race manages to make each individual feel special. Participants’ names are added to their bibs so they benefit from personalised cheers along the course and get start/finish line shout-outs from announcer Rob Powers, or even Olympian Bill Rodgers who has attended the marathon for the last several years. Another tradition that has developed in Philly is the delivery of celebratory high fives from Mayor Michael

Nutter as runners cross the finish line. Though the 2015 race marked Nutter’s last as mayor of Philadelphia, organisers hope that this tradition will continue with the next administration. After they cross the finish line runners are draped in heat sheets and handed a medal that is uniquely Philadelphian — in 2015 it featured a replica of the Liberty Bell, complete with the legendary crack and the ability to ring. As they continue down the Ben Franklin Parkway finishers receive post-race food that includes a Philly staple — the soft pretzel. From finish line shout-outs and mayoral high fives to local favorites in the post-race food area, the Philadelphia Marathon is the city’s own. No trip to Philadelphia would be complete without climbing the famed Art Museum steps and re-enacting the signature scene from Rocky… a challenge many Philadelphia Marathon participants are happy to accept, even after their own epic trek across the city.

Mount Fuji Marathon, Japan 29 November 2015

Running as worship The Mount Fuji Marathon, “the most beautiful marathon course in the world” has become well known as somewhere to enjoy the colours of the Japanese autumn

he Mount Fuji Marathon grew out of the old Kawaguchi-ko marathon course which looped around Lake Kawaguchiko and Lake Saiko. Runners have from the start enjoyed great views of Mt. Fuji, which was recently added to the UNESCO World Heritage List. The race has always been held in late November which shows off the beautiful autumnal colours to best effect as leaves of trees around the lakes turn red.

T

This year’s starter and event ambassador was Yuko Arimori. She was silver medalist in the Olympic Marathon in both 1992 in Barcelona and in 1996 in Atlanta. On a beautiful sunny day about 10,000 participants ran the race and could spend much of the time gazing at Mt. Fuji which was covered with a layer of lightly-powdered snow. The Mt. Fuji Marathon, since it changed its name from the Lake Kawaguchi Marathon, has become increasingly well known to foreign runners as somewhere where they can enjoy the beautiful Japanese autumn — and their numbers have doubled since just last year. About 1000 runners from 35 countries and regions including Chinese Taipei, Hong Kong, and China participated in the event this year. Apart from the full marathon organisers also staged the second Women’s Fantasy Run and the first Charity Run (both about 10km). Some of the proceeds from the Charity Run go 30

towards the project of cleaning up Mt. Fuji, Another 1000 runners enjoyed these two events.

name was changed to “the Fuji Marathon”. The 2015 event marked the 40th anniversary of the race.

The Kawaguchiko Marathon started in 1976. It was a trailblazing event. The founders had a commitment to make it “the best marathon event at the foot of the best mountain in Japan, Mt. Fuji”. 2428 runners participated in the very first event — more than those who completed the groundbreaking citywide fiveborough New York City Marathon that year. The numbers of people running increased and in 1980 Frank Shorter, an Olympic gold medalist, ran the 5th event. In 1985 the race had grown to include more than 10,000 participants. It was the first time this number had ever been reached in Japan for a full marathon.

Mt. Fuji was registered with the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2013 as it symbolizes “a religious object as well as the source of art”. Since ancient time, Japan has worshipped Animism and we believe God exists within its stately form. The belief, “If Mt. Fuji appears in your dream on the night of New Year’s Day, you will stay happy during the year” has been passed down as an oral tradition in Japan.

The event laid the foundation of “the citizen runner’s marathon boom” in Japan much as the New York Marathon had done a few years earlier in the United States. The Melbourne Marathon and the Berlin Marathon linked up with the event in 1987 and in 1990 respectively but it was only in 2012 that the

The Fuji Marathon starts at the place of Mt. Fuji worship, Fuji Omuro Sengen Jinja, the oldest shrine on Mt. Fuji which was built in 699. “Yoshida no Himatsuri” or the “Yoshida Fire Festival”, is one of the three unique major festivals of Japan, in which an illusionistic ritual is conducted which involves strolling around the town with huge torches. “Fugaku Sanju Rokue” or the painting of 36 different patterns of Mt. Fuji seen from all over Japan is famous worldwide and it greatly influenced artists like Van Gogh and Claude Achille Debussy. “Yoshida noodle”, the soul food at the foot of Mt. Fuji, is famous to visiting Mt. Fuji worshippers for its

thick ‘al dente’ noodles and is only available in this area. Every Japanese realises that when they see Mt. Fuji they are back in Japan. The Fuji Marathon is the event which best reflects the true heart of the Japanese people. During the marathon, the runners meet 40,000 warm-hearted locals, have an opportunity to face the tranquil lake in the Saiko area, and get inspiration from Mt. Fuji which comes and goes along the course. We welcome you to participate in the Fuji Marathon. The Berlin Marathon staff found it to be “the most beautiful marathon course in the world”.

Opinion Oh Fred; icon of our sport that you are and visionary that you were. I am sure you knew that we would be going down this path… You were our heroic frontman: you literally put the show on the road for us when you took the New York City Marathon out of the Park and onto the streets of all the Five Boroughs. We — the formerly tight-knit community of obsessives who were reticent even to admit to being marathon runners — were suddenly presented with our stage. You — with a little help from your friends — had presented us and our hitherto obscure sport with this great launchpad. But then you were always looking further down the path than anyone else could imagine: first to achieve public acceptance and later populist acclaim. You achieved acceptance with that very first citywide marathon in 1976 but ‘acclaim’, like wealth, is something after which most people will hanker for more. There may be no ceiling to celebrity but it seemed you were always striving to find out if there was: and if so burst through it.

The visionary but possibly slightly faulty

“Fred Lebow School of Statistics”

I can’t remember when any marathon organiser first claimed to have half a million spectators along their course, but it was a claim soon made — and most likely by you. But: half a million? That didn’t quite have the ring of the full ‘ten-tothe-power-of’ that a million had. So the zeitgeist obligingly escalated the figure.

It became the default response to any casual enquiry. I remember sitting in the London Marathon press office the day after the race some springtime in the late nineties. Someone shouted out, after receiving a question from a journalist of a national daily, ‘How many spectators did we have?’ Sitting there I reflexively suggested: ‘Tell them a Million’. Ashamed as I am of that personal contribution to the myth — at the time it was simply a lazy shorthand reply to an offhand question — it has taken all this time to ‘fess up’. You only have to do some junior arithmetic to see quite how ridiculous these million-spectator claims are: i] The marathon route can only be a maximum length of 42195m ii] There are two sides of the road - so spectators can spread themselves along a [theoretical] maximum line of barriers totalling 84390m in length. iii] Anyone face-forward along the barriers would take up at least half a metre, so only 168780 people can line themselves up against the barriers iv] If there are a million spectators optimally disposed by lining up evenly along the barriers only 168780 of them will find space: the rest have to line up behind them v] 1000000/168780 = 6 [approx].

A peon by Hugh Jones

This means that for one million spectators to be present at a marathon they would have to line themselves up six-deep on either side of the road. This is for marathon courses that do not repeat the same bit of road [like New York, Boston and Berlin — but not London which repeats 2km as common out-back]. People lined up six-deep on both sides along the entire length of the course. Have you, really, ever seen that? I doubt it. I have seen what could be an exceptional case. It was the London 2012 Olympic Games Men’s Marathon. The Men’s Marathon was just about the last event of the Games; it was the ‘Blue Riband’ event [with only the 100m to rival it for that claim], it was free to watch and — unlike for the women’s marathon a week before — the sun was shining. Londoners, other Brits and the huge numbers of foreign aficionados in town flocked to the course to try to catch a glimpse. And a glimpse — if they were lucky — was all that they could possibly have got. I had a privileged view from the lead vehicle but those on the side of the road might not have seen that much. They were crowded in up to 12-deep on either side: lucky ones crouched against the railings with other ranks pushing hard up against their backs; individuals climbed trees, lamp-posts and on to the top of bus shelters. Behind them people clung to park railings, stood on the ledges of buildings, garden walls, balconies above and anywhere else imaginable. I had never seen anything like it. But that was a loop course of a basic 12.9km, presenting only 25800m of barrier to line up

against. In fact it was considerably less than this because of parts of the course that were restricted like the start-finish, a section under a tunnel and where the course was narrowest. Other parts were run in both directions, reducing the length of barrier available for those stretches by 50%. In all it’s unlikely there could have been more than 20000m of barrier available along which to line up. So for a million people to have been watching they would have to have been 25-deep on both sides of the road. In London we don’t have pavements that are wide enough to accommodate anything like that number of people. What does a million people in one place look like? That was the crowd estimate for the ‘Je suis Charlie’ solidarity demonstration held in Paris on 11 January 2015. For once it may not have been much exaggerated. TV cameras were placed high up to get a perspective but what can only be described as a ‘sea of humanity’ filled the picture to the horizon, blotting out pretty much everything else from view. The Wikipedia entry for the New York City Marathon [whose “public” authorship probably includes people trained in the Fred Lebow School of Statistics] currently claims that: ‘Each year nearly two million spectators line the course’. O-kay… but how nearly is nearly? Maybe off by 90%?. As Fred might have said in other circumstances: ‘Gimmeabreak’.

Sihanoukville Int’l Half Marathon, Cambodia Sun 6 March 2016 ambodia's premier beach town boasts white sand beaches and warm Gulf of Thailand waters. Together they create a pure beachy atmosphere and a great tropical getaway. Sihanoukville is a place to unwind, enjoy fresh from-the-ocean seafood, take in a snorkeling or scuba trip and generally slow down, lay back and chill-out.

C

Sihanoukville has no direct flights from overseas so foreign runners must either take a domestic flight or come overland from the capital, Phnom Penh. The number of beachgoing weekenders from Phnom Penh has steadily increased in recent years yet the pace of life in Sihanoukville is still very relaxed.

The Marathon starts and finishes at Ocheuteal Beach. The course mostly sticks to the scenic coastline but also passes through the centre of town as well as outlying areas where runners sometimes draw smiles and curious stares from cows wandering onto the road. Runners who may have already run the older Angkor Wat sister event should be aware that the Sihanoukville course has some slopes. Last year’s winner Ma Viro recorded a time of 1:19 – fully 10 minutes slower than the winner at Angkor Wat.

Antarctica Marathon & Half Sat 12 March 2016

xplore the most pristine corner of the planet; come face-to-face with towering icebergs, penguins in the thousands, basking seals and breaching whales during this breathtaking trip of a lifetime.

E

First held in 1995 and now an annual event that sells out years in advance, the Antarctica Marathon weaves the allure of the marathon distance with a continent known for its stark unspoiled beauty, legendary lost explorers, unparalleled solitude and wildly windy, frosty weather. "A visit to Antarctica is an experience not soon forgotten," says Thom Gilligan, founder and president of Boston-based Marathon Tours & Travel and founder of the race. “Top that off with a well-fought marathon finish and it can change your life.” Staged on King George Island, just off the tip of the Antarctic Peninsula, the full and half marathon races are run on rough gravel roads that connect the scientific research bases of Uruguay, Chile, China and Russia. Race-day temperatures can range from —10C to +1C with wind chills about six degrees lower. Heavy snowfalls are rare but light flurries, rain, fog and strong winds are common. Care is taken to minimise impact on the environment in the sensitive ecosystem. The races are held over two consecutive days to abide by Antarctic environmental restrictions which allow no more than 100 visitors on shore in any single landing area. Race results from both days are

combined to determine the winners and overall placings. Getting to a marathon on what is referred to as the “Last Continent,” can be a marathon in itself. Athletes travel an average of 11,000km (7000 miles) to reach Buenos Aires before departing to Ushuaia, Argentina, the southernmost city in the world. There they board one of two converted Russian icebreaker ships for a two-day crossing of the Drake Passage, a body of water that has some of the roughest seas anywhere on Earth. The entire expedition spans 14 days and includes numerous landings on the continent, wildlife viewing and more. “The inaugural Antarctica Marathon made it possible for runners to conquer a marathon on all of the earth’s seven continents,” says Gilligan. “In recognition of those runners who have achieved this Marathon Tours & Travel established the Seven Continents Club™.” Since then more than 560 men and women from all over the world have completed this quest. ■ www.antarcticamarathon.com http://www.sevencontinentsclub.com Contact: info@marathontours.com; Tel +1 617 242 845

A

The 2016 event marks 41 years since the first Canberra Marathon was run. The 1984 edition was the selection race for that year’s Olympics — the first to include women. Last year almost 6000 took part in the full range of events. The Ultra Marathon acts as Australia’s selection race for the World Ultra Marathon Championships in Doha in December.

All five courses are single laps to best explore the beautiful Canberra lakeside and surrounds. The 5km and 10km fun runs are held on the Saturday with both courses beginning in the National Rose Gardens and making their way along Lake Burley Griffin and through the Parliamentary Triangle before finishing near the Old Parliament House. The Marathon and Half Marathon courses start at the Old Parliament House and skirt the scenic lakeshore before the Marathon runners head out to the National Zoo and Aquarium and cross the Schivener Dam before running through the scenic suburb of Yarralumla. All three long distance courses merge together at the finish in the National

Rose Gardens. The Half Marathon follows the Marathon course but turns back to recross the lake via Commonwealth Avenue. Canberra, the national capital, offers many sights for those visiting including the Australian War Memorial, the National Gallery of Australia and the National Portrait Gallery which showcases Australia’s identity, history and culture through portraiture. Outdoor sights include the Australian National Botanic Gardens, the Mount Majura Vineyard and Mount Ainsle Lookout.

One of Canberra’s most popular attractions is Questacon, a giant building filled with entertaining activities exploring science and technology that both adults and children will enjoy. The National Zoo and Aquarium offers an intimate view of a wide variety of Australia’s exotic native animals, On 3 April, just before the 2016 race, the Auto Italia Canberra event showcases the latest Italian cars, motorbikes and scooters. ■ www.runningfestival.com.au

nasty giants and you don’t need to pay any toll. To reach the East Bank you run through the 1717m-long tunnel “Waasland” [the “rabbit hole” as it locally known].

It could be called a “giant” event. The Marathon finishes on the East bank of the River Scheldt at the fountain of Brabo on the Central Market Square. According to legend Brabo was a warrior who refused to pay a toll to the giant Antigone. He killed the giant, cut off his hand and threw it into the river. The name Antwerp (“hand throw”) derives from this legend.

There is also the better-known 590mlong Kennedy Tunnel: best known as a record-breaker in in traffic jams. But on race day cars are banished and the tunnel reserved for the tens of thousands of runners.

The Central Market Square, with its renaissance style City Hall and the Brabo fountain lying in the shadow of the 123-metre high St Mary’s Cathedral, is one of Antwerp’s many historical sights. Rubens’ House and the ‘Museum on the Riverside’ are

two of the many highly-rated museums in Antwerp. The Meir is the central shopping boulevard in town. All lie on both the 10 Miles & Marathon courses. Besides the main races there are also the 5km Fun Run, Women’s Run and a 1400m Kids Run. All events start on the West Bank although the Marathon departs from a different location to the other races. To get to the Marathon finish at the Central Market Square on the East Bank spectators cross the river through the pedestrian tunnel or by

taking the Flandria ferries which are free of charge on the day. Antwerp makes a wonderful destination for a weekend away. Being one of the largest ports in Europe brings a certain atmosphere to the city. The city is also famous for fashion and diamond-cutting. Many great restaurants are spread across this young and dynamic city, only 30 minutes away from Brussels Airport. ■ www.dvvantwerp10miles.be

Haspa Marathon Hamburg, Germany Sun 17 April 2016 ast April Hamburg rolled out the red carpet for almost 15,000 marathon runners (including handbikers) to celebrate their 30th anniversary edition. The event includes the LOTTO Hamburg Relay Marathon and the Zehntel Kids’ race.

L

The Hamburg course is known for being flat, fast and scenic. From the red carpet at the start line the route leads runners along the magnificent waterways of the Hanseatic city: the Elbe River and its tributary the Alster. After the start at the Congress Centre runners rush down the Reeperbahn, Hamburg’s most sinful mile and centre of a vibrant nightlife and party scene. They then turn onto the prestigious Elbchaussee and loop back to the centre. Along the Elbe embankment participants get a glimpse of the grand harbour area. Other highlights along the River include Landungsbrücken, the Elbphilharmonie concert hall and the world’s largest warehouse district, the Speicherstadt. The unique grouping of red brick buildings have been recently awarded UNESCO World Heritage Site status. After passing the city centre, the course heads north along the east side of the Alster and past Hamburg’s lush city park. On the way back into town and closer to the finish line runners pass some of the city’s most beautiful mansions which speak of Hamburg’s wealth. In the Eppendorf district runners experience unrivaled spectator support when they need it most — for the final couple of kilometres. If you are looking to better your personal best or are thinking of making your marathon debut

Hamburg offers not just a speedy route but unconditional support from spectators. No matter the weather conditions you can count on the crowd to put on a good party along the route. Hamburg loves its marathon, which is one of the largest sporting events in the city. Although the majority of participants are local runners from over 106 countries take part, among them British, Danish, Austrian, Swiss and other nationalities. Being the largest spring marathon in Germany the Haspa Marathon Hamburg also attracts many national as well as international elite runners. Kenyan superstar Eliud Kipchoge, who was last year’s most decorated marathon runner, debuted in Hamburg back in 2013 and took the marathon to the next level by setting the course record of 2:05:30. ■ www.haspa-marathonhamburg.de

After a steep descent the Ugandan extended his lead over Simpson to 13 seconds at the second checkpoint 2km later. Baldaccini marginally lost ground during this section but came through strongly over the final uphill stretch and overtook Simpson as the Briton fell away in the final 2km. Simpson’s team mate Andrew Douglas was back a distant fifth but garnered enough points to give him the 2015 World Cup title and become the first British man to win the Cup, Simpson finishing second overall. Musobo, with only the last two races under his belt — both wins — finished third. 60

But Eritrean runners were unable to get visas to travel to Europe and this, coupled with the sudden deterioration in course conditions — there was a downpour just two hours before the race after clear skies and no rain for 10 days prior — meant the finances appeared to be on a firmer footing.

He had an eight-second lead over Great Britain’s 2015 world championships bronze medallist Robbie Simpson at the top of the first summit just before the halfway point on the challenging 10km course. Italy’s Alex Baldaccini was another three seconds back.

Despite the mud-soaked course Uganda’s 2015 world mountain running champion Fred Musobo continued his fine form around the mountains of Europe. He had taken the world title in Wales just two weeks earlier and dominated this sixth and final race in the WMRA World Cup.

Sarah Tunstall took the women’s race and secured the World Cup title, making it a double Cup win for Great Britain — only the second time runners from the same nation have won the Cup in the same year since its inception in 1999. She started the day 30 points adrift of leader Timea Merenyi but the Hungarian was not competing, Tunstall became Britain’s first World Cup winner since Angele Mudge took the third of her three titles in 2002. Like Musobo she made her intentions known from the gun and at the first checkpoint she had a huge 44-second lead over Italy’s 2013 world champion and Šmarna Gora winner Alice Gaggi. Gaggi closed the gap on the descent to 30 seconds by the second checkpoint but then Tunstall pulled away again on the second ascent. Winning the World Cup title was partial compensation for Tunstall after just missing out on the medals when finishing fourth on home soil at the world championships two weeks earlier.

WMRA News Šmarna Gora Race, Slovenia About this classic race: In the autumn of 1979 running enthusiasts from Ljubljana — Slovenia’s capital — decided to organize a race to the top of one of the most popular local mountains at Šmarna Gora. Nobody envisioned that it would become such a massive event with worldwide popularity. In the early 1990s the event was the first national championships in the new state of Slovenia and later that decade world champion Lucio Fregona (ITA) made the Šmarna Gora race an internationally recognised event. After the millennium the Šmarna Gora race became one of the founding members of the WMRA World Cup and since then it has been the final World Cup event on 13 occasions. In the last 35 years many world championships medallists have been tested on the demanding course that takes runners 360m uphill to the first summit followed by 300m of technical descent before a 300m climb to the finish. The top men race just over 40 minutes for this 10km course.

1st IAU 50km World Championships Doha, Qatar The 5km looped course took the athletes through the different facilities in the ‘Aspire’ sporting complex of Doha. The men ran in a pack from the start but by 25km had dwindled to just Arnold Kiptai and Michael Fokorani (ZIM) running slightly ahead of Tony Migliozzi (ITA) in third. In the last 10km Migliozzi moved past Kiptaoi and Fokorani while further down the field Charles Maina (KEN) and Jesse Davis (USA) were moving through. Migliozzi ran the last lap in 17:52 with Kenyan teammates Kiptaoi and Ongaki who moved up the field very quickly on the latter half finished with silver and bronze medals respectively. The women’s race shaped up differently with Camiller Herron taking an early lead and never relinquishing it, increasing her pace by the lap. Caitlin Smith (USA) took hold of second place despite slowing in the second half. Khishigsaikhan Galbadrakh (MGL) had an outstanding run, leading the chase group for three quarters of the race and eventually finishing fifth. Marija Vrajic (CRO), Catrin Jones (CAN) and Olympic marathon runner Catriona Jennings (IRL) started conservatively but made up places as the race wore on.

Provisional suspension of the Russian Federation IAU confirms that it will enforce the decision of the IAAF to provisionally suspend the AllRussia Athletics Federation (ARAF). The effect of this is that no Russian athletes will be invited to participate in any official IAU competition. The IAU further expects that IAU-labelled races will not permit Russian athletes to participate in their events. The performances of any Russian athletes who

do participate will be removed from results of these events and will not be included in international ranking lists. This will remain the place for as long as the IAAF suspension is in force. IAU appreciates this is harsh for Russian athletes and we can only hope that their Federation will soon take the necessary measures to reinstate international confidence in their anti-doping policy.

The 2016 Trail World Championships will take place on 29 October 2016 in the “Peneda-Geres” National Park at Geres (POR) over a distance of 85km with a profile of 4500m overall climb. National teams will be hosted in Braga, an hour away from Oporto International Airport, See: https://youtu.be/SbC8B1 KLpWA

2015–2017 50km World Championships in Doha, Qatar Aspire has signed a threeyear commitment to host the 50km World Championships in Doha (QAT). The first of the three annual championships was held on 4 December 2015.

Tilahun Tariku won the seventh edition in ideal conditions, setting a new course record after gradually easing away from Henry Kibet in the second half of the race. The duo were on 2:16 pace to start but on the final of the four 10km laps around the ancient city centre the wind slowed them. The women’s contest between Sarah Kebaso and Rebecca Tallam followed a similar pattern with defending champion Kebaso overcoming the early challenge to eventually finish six minutes clear. Asefa Hunde and Gadamnesh Yayeh were completely dominant in the half marathon. Behind them over 200 local and international participants completed two circuits of the same lap used for the marathon. Around 8500 in the 10km ran a popular new course that took in a substantial area of the city and entered the city centre using the Wadi Saqra. The finish was the same as for the other races at the166 AD Roman amphitheatre. The event was held for the second time under the Run Jordan organisation, who have been instrumental in promoting the sport. They now organise four events in

10 October 2015 30th Spar Budapest Marathon Hungary Overnight rain was quickly drying up by the time Marathoners and 30km runners departed in ideal conditions: 14C under an overcast sky. Dániel Soós crossed the line first, also taking the top spot in the Hungarian national championship. Among the women Tímea Merényi repeated her 2012 win but was hard pressed by veteran Simona Staicu who had made the Rio 2016 qualifying time in Berlin only two weeks previously. In marked contrast to the chauvinistic reputation currently ascribed to the Hungarian Government the Budapest Marathon is one of the most foreigner-friendly events to be found anywhere in the world. Runners are cheered in along the home straight with their name and country of origin announced along with thanks for their participation. The Coca-Cola Wake Your Body 30km was won by a Norwegian man and a Spanish woman. In total a record 27,860 runners from 80 countries took part in one or other of the weekend’s events.

11 October 2015 Bank of America Chicago Marathon United States of America For the second time in three years, Kenyans recorded a double victory writes Stephen Reilly. Florence Kiplagat asserted herself in front of a lead pack of seven runners for most of the race before pulling away in the final 5km. Up to 15km [49:40] the pace was sub-2.20 but began to drop approaching half way [1:10:27]. The pack was whittled

down one by one, leaving Kiplagat and Yebrgual Melese out in front. With just a few kilometres of running left, Kiplagat pulled away for her first marathon victory outside of Berlin. “With no pacemakers, I was trying to control the front,” said Kiplagat, who earlier this year broke her own world half-marathon record with 1:05:09 in Barcelona. After winning she attempted to leap for joy but instead fell and rolled over. Still smiling, she gave a thumbs-up from the ground as she dedicated the race to her two daughters. A fast time in the men’s race was not guaranteed without the use of pacemakers, which was evident as 10 runners passed halfway in 1:05:11. They only began to separate after 30km. Dickson Chumba, Sammy Kitwara and Ethiopia’s Abera Kuma forced the pace to cover 30–35km in 14:38. They opened up a 15-second gap. Kuma fell behind with about 5km remaining, as Chumba made his break to stretch out to a 25-second winning margin over Kitwara. “Running today was like a long run training time,” said pre-race favourite Kitwara: “A slow pace was tough.”

18 October 2015 TCS Amsterdam Marathon Netherlands A large group of 18 athletes formed the lead pack with a fast early pace and reached halfway in 1:02:56. But high humidity and rain splashing up from the road took their toll. For the last 10–15km runners looked as if they had all hit

the wall. Like last year Bernard Kipyego coped best with the difficult conditions. Taking the lead near the Rijksmuseum, he entered the Olympic Stadium alone and shaved three seconds off his personal best. Abdi Nageeye threw his arms up in the air as he crossed the finish line to make the Rio Olympic qualifying time. Fellow Dutch runner Michael Butter fell agonisingly short with his 2:11:08. Nageeye said: “I’m thrilled but I feel for Michel and Khalid. For three Dutch athletes [go under] 2:12 is a tremendous feat. The qualifying time is so much faster than for other countries, I don’t understand it.” Joyce Chepkirui knocked 5 minutes off her best and recorded the eighth fastest women’s time ever run at the TCS Amsterdam Marathon. 44,028 runners gathered at the Olympic Stadium for the various events (Marathon, Mizuno Half Marathon, TCS 8km and races for children). Nearly 16000 runners registered for the marathon.19,000 entries over all events were from 105 other nationalities. The race was broadcast live in 137 countries.

The men passed halfway in 1:04:41 in a pack but by 30km only Samuel Theuri and Abel Kipsang were left. They stayed together for several kilometres before Kipsang forged ahead. The only non-Kenyan winner in Lisbon came in the men’s half marathon, which was also the most competitive race of the day. A pack of six ran together until 15km but a few kilometres later the lead pack was down to four, then three and then only Nguse Amlosom and Atsedu Tsegay who battled right to the end before Eritrea’s African 10,000m champion Amlosom edged ahead by a second at the finish line.

The 30-year-old Mokoka held on as best he could and improved his PB of 2:08:33 which had stood since his marathon debut in 2010.

Her lead just kept growing for the rest of the race and she crossed the line with an advantage of almost nine minutes. The men passed 10km in 28:32 but the pace settled soon after as Elias Chelimo and four others went through half way in 1:04:00. By 35km just Chelimo, Evans Kiplagat and Silas Limo remained at the front but over the next 5km Chelimo opened up a gap of 90 seconds over his fellow Kenyans. He faced a final 2km which he later described as “killer” but kept ahead to win by

22 November 2015 Great Ethiopian Run 10km Ethiopia The trio that made the podium were together as they entered the last kilometre but Tamirat Tola accelerated away with 500m to go writes Paul Gains. “I led after 2km; I pushed and nobody went with me, and I went on to win,” he said, with disarming simplicity. In the women’s race Mamitu Daska put almost a minute between herself and her nearest rival. She broke clear just after halfway and continued to extend her lead over the uphill second half of the course. “The course and the wind were very difficult. I was very happy to participate in this race - Haile’s last race - and happy to win. I knew I was in good shape”.

I had to move and run fast but it was not fast enough: 33 minutes. I should have started with the elite athletes to at least run 30 or 31 minutes. I started behind the group. I did a lot of what you call zig-zag,” he said.

More than 40,000 participants lined up, most of them resplendent in green t-shirts bearing his image and the slogan ‘Running For The Planet’. Gebrselassie first fired the starter’s pistol before jumping in with the masses to accompany several government ministers. He later presented the awards with other leading Ethiopian athletes such as Tirunesh Dibaba, Sileshi Sihine and Genzebe Dibaba, who were all present for this carnival-like event. “This year is a very special year and it’s not because I ran,” Gebrselassie explained. “For the last two years we were not in Meskel Square because of construction [of a city-wide light railway network]. Three years ago many participants walked here. Today, because of the new light rail train many people came on the

6 December 2015 Fukuoka Int’l Open Marathon Championship Japan Kenya’s former world record holder Patrick Makau successfully defended his in 2:08:18 the first to win backto-back since Ethiopia’s Tsegaye Kebede in 2008 and 2009 writes Ken Nakamura. “After the pacemakers dropped out at 25km, everyone was waiting to see who is going to take over the lead,” said Makau. Until then runners were very close to 3 mins/km pace for a time around 2:07:00. But it abruptly slackened to 3:07 for the next kilometre and they never recovered. 30km was passed in 1:30:49, with 10km to go at 32km, the lead pack was down to Makau, his compatriot Bernard Koech, Ethiopia’s Feleke and local Japanese hope Satoru Sasaki. Just before 35km Koech surged but Makau quickly moved up to join Koech. Makau made his own move with 5km to go ahead but did then did just enough to keep ahead. 2:08:18 was the world record time that Australia’s Rob De Castella ran in the 1981 Fukuoka Marathon 34 years ago. Feleke and Sasaki both passed Koech in the closing stages. Kenya’s world record holder Dennis Kimetto fell off the pace after only 3km and dropped out at 5km.
