Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon, Hong Kong, China

Sun 12 February 2017

22.3964 114.109

Melaku Belachew smashed the course record by 56 seconds and improved his personal best by two minutes writes John Milkeen. On the women’s side all 10 top places were filled by Ethiopians, headed by Gulume Tollesa.

The men’s race came alive in the final 10km. Halfway was passed by a group of 16 men in 1:06:03. Then Stephen Chemlany joined James Barmasai at the front of the group and together they forged a lead of around 15 seconds by 25km to put themselves back on track for a course record. Chemlany forged on ahead to reach 30km in 1:33:13, 19 seconds ahead. But the 14-man group behind soon began to reel in Chemlany. They splintered apart over the last 10km as Belachew and Julius Keter broke away coming out of the Western Harbour Tunnel.

Belachew opened up a small but decisive gap at about 40km as he held off Keter all the way to win by three seconds with both of them well inside the previous race record.

The women’s race played out similarly. A race record seemed highly unlikely from the outset as the lead pack of 11 women passed halfway in 1:18:09.

The pace picked up in the second half and the group whittled down to just three Ethiopians: Gulume Tollesa, Betelhem Moges and Aberu Mekuria. The trio battled to the end with Tollesa getting the victory. In fourth Letebrhan Haylay’s time was faster than her winning time last year.

Kagawa Marugame International Half Marathon, Japan

Sun 5 February 2017

34.3401 134.043

Callum Hawkins won convincingly in a new personal best to become second only to Mo Farah on the UK all-time list writes Ken Nakamura. Olympic Marathon silver medallist Eunice Kirwa pushed the pace in the women’s race from the start (15:35 at 5km) to build a 30-second lead. She reached 10km in 31:37, 44 seconds clear of Amy Cragg. Cragg then began to chip away at the lead, cutting the margin to 32 seconds at 15 kilometres and to 26 at 20km. But Jepkirui was never threatened finishing just one second slower than her winning time last year. Cragg lopped 1:23 from her previous lifetime best.

Hawkins was even more dominant in the men’s race but had begun much more cautiously. Abraham Kipyatich led a large group through 5km in 14:20 and 10km in 28:28. The pack included Hawkins, Ethiopian Atsedu Tsegaye, Joel Mwaura and the Japanese trio of Daichi Kamino, Suguru Osako, and Yuta Shitara who were mounting an assault on the 1:00:25 national record. At 13km the pack began to break up, with Hawkins and Kipyatich taking to the front. Hawkins made his move soon after the pair reached 15km in 42:37. By 20km he was more than 50 seconds ahead of Kipyatich who in turn had a gap of a few seconds on the chase pack that included Tsegaye, Kamino and Mwaura. The 24-year-old Briton stopped the clock at 60 minutes flat. Tsegaye made up ground in the waning stages to finish second while Kipyatch fell back to fourth.

Sun 29 January 2017

34.6937 135.502

Risa Shigetomo overhauled early leader Misato Horie in the 35th kilometre and went on to record her second fastest ever time writes Ken Nakamura. Her fastest was in the same race five years ago which clinched her a place in the 2012 London Olympic team. This time her win could mean a return to the British capital as a member of the 2017 world championships squad.

“When the pace suddenly increased (at around 13km) I was surprised to see such a big gap open up in front of me [but] around 17—18km I started to regain my running rhythm,” she said.

When Flomena Cheyech Daniel upped the pace at 14km only Misaki Kato, Misaot Horie and Kaori Yoshida were able to maintain contact. When Cheyech pulled out at halfway in 1:11:46, the trio formed the lead pack, with Yoshida pushing the pace. Kato drifted back after 25km and Horie took over the lead.

Shigetomo moved into second by 29km and began cutting into Horie’s lead. She reduced the gap from 21 seconds at 31km to 6 seconds at 35km and 500m later moved to the front for good. Although she slowed near the finish she won comfortably in her tenth marathon start, her fifth in Osaka.

Standard Chartered Mumbai Marathon, India

Sun 15 January 2017

19.076 72.8777

Tanzania’s Alphonce Simbu Simbu, fifth at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, hit the front with 1km to go and sprinted away for victory after a duel over the last 7km with Kenyan Joshua Kipkorir. After a large group of 13 had passed through halfway in 1:04:49 the pace stayed steady as far as 30km with seven men still together. Kipkorir then changed pace and split the pack. By 35km as they started on an 800m long drag up a tough hill, Simbu was his only rival. Simbu tucked in to Kipkorir’s frustration. With 2km to go the strain of leading began to tell on Kipkorir as Simbu awaited his moment to strike. He raced away to equal the second-fastest winning time in the 14 years the race has been held. Falling only 13 seconds short of his personal best time was an impressive performance as the course is challenging, with two big hills, and conditions were warm and humid. All the more impressive that Kipkorir sliced more than three minutes off his best time.

By contrast to the thrilling two-man battle in the men’s race Bournes Kitur, after passing halfway in 1:14:03 with three other women raced away to a one-minute lead at 30km. The 21-year-old Kenyan had opened up a lead of around a minute by 30km and kept on extending her advantage over the remainder of the race. “I was confident I could win because I knew the course after finishing second here last year,” said the quietly-spoken Kitur. 2014 and 2015 champion Dinknesh Mekash started to struggle just before halfway and finished a disappointing fifth.

Mumbai Marathon is one of the largest sporting events in Asia and India’s biggest platform for charity. There were four other associated races with an estimated 42,000 runners taking to the streets of Mumbai.

Tiberias Winner Marathon, Israel

Fri 6 January 2017

32.7959 35.531

1330 runners completed the full marathon and 1170 the 10km in sunny but cool conditions. There were two exceptional results: a little-known Ethiopian Gebremaryan Gebrekid Hiwot improved her personal best by nine minutes to break the 25-year old course record and set a world-leading time. The second impressive achievement was by the Israeli Girma Amara who set a national record for a debut marathon with 2:17:20. This gave him a qualifying time for the World Championships to be held in London this summer.

Xiamen International Marathon, China

Mon 2 January 2017

24.4798 118.089

Race favourites Lemi Berhanu and Meseret Mengistu led podium sweeps for Ethiopia writes Vincent Wu.

After a group of 15 runners passed through 10km in 30:15 Berhanu made an early break. Running alone at the front, with countrymen Shura Kitata and Mosinet Geremew chasing, Berhanu passed 25km in 1:15:16 with an advantage of 36 seconds but then began to slow. His lead was not threatened and behind him half marathon specialist Geremew outraced Kitata over the last 10km. Xiamen was his marathon debut.

Meseret Mengistu followed her win in Beijing last September with another in Xiamen finishing with a time two seconds slower and six minutes shy of Mare Dibaba’s 2:19:52 course record set in 2015.

Seven runners passed through 10km in 34:30; by halfway there were four of them left. Mengistu, defending champion Workenesh Edesa, 2016 Beijing Marathon runner-up Melkam Gizaw and 2016 Wuhan Marathon winner Meseret Legese. Legese has run the last four Xiamen Marathons but is yet to claim a victory. Edesa and Mengistu pulled away after about 26km. Edesa tried to shake off Mengistu with surges but her efforts came to nothing as the patient Mengistu took her chance at 35km and never looked back.
