World Cross Champion Irene Cheptai made a winning debut in her first international road race by a decisive move at 7km which she later said had convinced her that she would win by the time she reached 8km. In the men’s race 2013 winner Alex Korio made his push at the same point in the race and it became clear that no one would be able keep pace.

After overnight storms which left roads flooded and strewn with debris conditions were cool but humid. The women set off at leisurely pace so that Worknesh Degefa took it upon herself to lead a strong Kenyan group of Cheptai, Helah Kiprop, Gladys Chesir and Magdalyne Masai. Masai fell back after the group passed 5km in 16:19 and the pace began to pick up. Gladys Chesir was the next to fall behind but when Cheptai made her move the race looked like it it was well and truly over.

Zane Robertson was the early leader of the men’s race alongside pacemaker Edwin Kiptoo but the 5km split of 14:10 seemed to act as a spur for Kiptoo to press on with the race rather than finish his pacing duties. He drew clear of Robertson at about 6km and was pressed only by Korio. While Korio soon took over from Kiptoo Robertson slipped back several places over the closing kilometres, but remained ahead of world record holder Leonard Komon. The champion for the last two years, Mosinet Geremew, followed them in in 10th place.

Harmony Genève Marathon for Unicef, Switzerland

Sun 7 May 2017

46.1984 6.1423

William Yegon broke the course record by 29 seconds after running to halfway side by side with five other athletes. The women’s race was much closer run with the top three finishing within half a minute of each other.

Among the Marathon runners were 350 relay teams of colleagues, friends and families who completed the distance in a series of relay legs of between 4.1km and 10.1km.

Among the half marathon entrants was 85-year old Briton Dierdre Larkin who set a world age best of 2:05:13. A total of 17,404 runners and walkers took part across the eight-race format.
Over 3000 runners from the Sunday races went that extra step by covering an extra 600m after having crossed the finish line on the Pont du Mont Blanc. By taking part in this ‘Extra Mile’ their efforts were rewarded by the Montblanc Group donating CHF 30,000 to Unicef, the official charity partner of the event.

51.7592 19.456

The race was an upset for the Polish female favourite, Agnieszka Mierzejewska, who had to drop out with an injury.

A group of five men went through 10km in 31:19. Jafred Kipchumba Chirchir seemed to be willing to push but did not take the risk of leading alone. Only in the 34th kilometre did Samson Kiprono Barmao make a decisive attack. Asmare Workneh covered the move but soon dropped back but kept ahead of Chirchir in third. Local favourite in the women’s race, Agnieszka Mierzejewska, withdrew with an Achilles tendon injury. This made it clear that the victory will be decided between Kenza Dahmani and the Ethiopians Amelework Fikadu and Tigist Shetu who completed the first half in 1:15:42. The Algerian saved her effort for the final stages and prevailed in a new personal best time.

1500 runners participated with another 2500 in the associated 10km race. DOZ Marathon Lodz 2017 was announced the “Loudest Marathon in Poland” with 52 official cheering points. Half of them played live music performed by local bands selected by Piotr Rogucki — artistic director of the event and the leader of a popular Polish rock band — COMA. Rogucki himself finished the marathon in 3:59:31.

Olympic marathon runner Lungile Gongqa took a comfortable win to become the first home town winner since 1973. He broke away at 47km and surged again at 52km to drop the Lesothan pair Warinyane Lebopo and Teboho Sello.

Belarussian runner Maryna Damantsevich built up a big lead by the half marathon mark. She finished her race 10 minutes ahead. She suffered a mishap at the start: “Someone bumped into me and I fell… I thought I was in second place, but couldn’t find the woman in front of me, so I ran faster to catch up,” she explained. The women’s race was left wide open after a hamstring injury brought defending champion Caroline Wöstmann’s race to an abrupt end at 11km. In the Half Marathon men’s race Namakoe Nkhasi defended his title and set a new course record.

After a few days of rain race morning was cool and windy but runners described conditions as great for running. Title Sponsor Old Mutual’s 1-million Rand bonus to anyone breaking the the 56km records stayed safe – as they have remained unbroken since 1988 and 1989, standing to Thompson Magawana (03:03:44) and Frith van der Merwe (03:30:36).

Running in unseasonably warm conditions Marius Kimutai and Meskerem Assefa took the titles with Assefa improving her personal best by a minute writes Cors Van Den Brink.

Three pacemakers started over-enthusiastically by passing 5km in 14:36 but moderated the pace to record further 5km splits of 14:56 and 15:06 and pass through halfway at 1:02:51. Pacing continued to 30km (1:29:51) after which Laban Korir pushed the pace to reach 35km in 1:44:54. But Kimutai took over at 40km and quickly carved a decisive gap.

As early as 15km in the women’s race it was down to four: Lucy Karimi, Eunice Chumba, Jane Jelegat Seurey and Assefa. The quartette reached halfway in 1:11:35 and were still together at 30km. Seuray dropped back then but the final move only came in the last 500m when Assefa broke away.

48.8566 2.35222

Husband-wife duo Paul Lonyangata and Purity Rionoripo won their respective titles with Rionoripo breaking the women’s course record writes Quentin Guillon.

A women’s lead pack consisting of Netsanet Gudeta, defending champion Visiline Jepkesho, Yebrgual Melese, Flomena Cheyech, Rionoripo and Agnes Barsosio passed halfway in 1:10:19 on course record pace. Gudeta fell back just before 30km, and Melese soon after, as Jepkesho set a testing pace. Rionoripo withstood the test and set one of her own by surging at 36km. She passed 40km 10m ahead of Barsosio with Jepkesho a further 50m back. But Barsosio caught the leader although Rionoripo broke away again in the final kilometre to win by 11 seconds and smash her lifetime best by nearly four minutes. She posted the second fastest time of the year so far; behind her, Barsosio improved her best by three minutes.

A lead group of 15 men went through halfway in 1:02:56. When pacing ceased at 30km (1:29:38) the fastest man in the field, Kenyan Stephen Chebogut (best of 2:05:52), moved to the front. But only 1km later Lonyangata made his first move to reduce his contenders to Chebogut, Solomon Yego and Yitayal Atnafu. Lonyangata redoubled his effort at 38km and edged ahead, continuing to extend his lead until reaching the finish line and setting a personal best time by over a minute.

Daegu International Marathon, South Korea

35.8694 128.606

Pamela Jepkosgei waited until the final few metres to break free from her last remaining opponent but Mathew Kisorio ran alone for the last 5km writes John Mulkeen.

Six men passed through 10km in 29:41 and 15km in 44:31 but then the pace dropped as they reached halfway in 63 mins and 30km in 1:29:56. Marathon debutant Bernard Korir was the first to drop back, followed by Evans Kipkoech and Mohamed Reda. Kisorio had just Kipsang for company at 35km, reached in 1:45:08, but he too soon drifted behind. The gap behind Kisorio continued to grow as he went on to win and Kipsang faded to fourth and Peter Some came through to take second.

Six women passed through halfway in 1:13:49 but the lead pack split up soon afterwards with Winnie Jepkorir and Loice Kiptoo opening up a gap on Rotich with Nancy Koech further behind. But Rotich caught and ran with Jepkorir for the closing few kilometres before kicking to victory and taking more than a minute off her best time, with Jepkorir just four seconds behind with another personal best.

Maratona di Roma, Italy

Sun 2 April 2017

41.8724 12.4802

With rain falling heavily in the Italian capital, the men’s race set off fast writes John Mulkeen. Seven men, including four pacemakers, went through halfway in 1:03:25 on course record schedule. But the pace slipped after the last of the pacemakers dropped out at 30km. Four men were then left: Kitata, fellow Ethiopians Werkunesh Seyoum and Solomon Lema, plus Kenya’s Dominic Ruto. Lema dropped back while the three other ran together to reach 35km in 1:46:03. Kitata then pushed the pace and opened up a gap of almost a minute over the next 5km. The course record slipped away but he took more than a minute off his best time.

The women’s elite field largely ignored the pacemakers, passing through halfway in 1:14:23 before defending champion Rahma Tusa went ahead to lead by 27 seconds at 25km and 77 seconds at 30km. Beatrice Cherop, Halima Hussen and Abeba Tekulu drifted further and further behimd her. Former 1500m specialist Mestawot Tadesse made up ground to take second place and chop more than five minutes off her best time.

Edwin Kipngetich Koech broke the Italian all-comers’ record by 4 seconds while Sheila Chepkoech broke her personal best by more than 10 minutes writes Diego Sampaolo.

Seven men were paced through halfway in 1:03:17. Pacemakers dropped out at 28km and 30km after which Koech broke away to build a lead which grew to over two minutes by the finish. He smashed his previous personal best of 2:10:52 set in Verona last November. It also improved the previous course record of 2:07:53 set by Duncan Kibet in 2008.

Sheila Chepkoech held off 2010 European champion and 2008 Milan Marathon winner Anna Incerti by six seconds. Five women had passed through halfway in 1:14:30 and 30km in 1:46:31. Chepkoech and Incerti pulled away after 35km and built up a 14-second lead over Vivian Kiplagat at 38km before battling it out in the last 2km as Chepkoech finally broke away in the last kilometre.

-33.4691 -70.642

Kenyan Luka Rotich Lobuwan and Inés Melchor of Peru cruised to victory in the 11th edition of the race writes Eduardo Biscayart.

Four men passed halfway in 1:05:27 but by 25km (1:17:42) Lobuwan only had Julius Kipyego Keter for company. They reached 35km in 1:50:21, with the duel between 2015 winner Lobuwan and Keter, who won the race in 2011 and 2013, decided in the final 3km.

In the women’s race Melchor started to push the pace after reaching halfway in 1:18:39 and found herself already alone by 25km (1:32:44). The 30-year-old Peruvian, a lawyer by profession and South American record holder with 2:26:48 (2014), kept the pace steady through 35km to repeat her 2015 victory with a second half more than a minute faster than the first.

A total of 28,000 runners took part in the three-race event. Conditions were pleasant with 12–16°C and low humidity.

Lake Biwa Mainichi Marathon, Japan

Sun 5 March 2017

35.6817 139.765

Ezekiel Chebeii sprinted away from 2013 winner Vincent Kipruto with 300m to go writes Ken Nakamura.

Three pacers set a three minutes/km clip right through to 30km (14:57 14:53, 14:59, 15:11, 14:53 and 14:59 5km splits) before the first of them dropped out. The two remaining pace makers looked strongest among the leaders. Chebii fell behind but then worked his way back a kilometre later. The duel between the two Kenyans continued for more than 10km, and they entered the Ojiyama stadium together before Chebeii unleashed his winning kick to record the third fastest time of his career and fourth time under 2:10 (but the first since Lake Biwa 2014).

Japanese debutant Akinobu Murasawa ran aggressively in the first half to reach midway in 1:03:20 just behind Chebii and Kipruto. He was still running well at 25km but then began to slow. After 35km he was caught by Satoru Sasaki and drifted back. Sasaki had struggled with side stitches from 17–25km but fought his way back to finish fourth overall and first Japanese to finish — but likely out of contention for a place in Japan’s 2017 world championships team for which Lake Biwa was the final qualifying race.

Conditions were favourable: around 11C with 50% humidity and mostly cloudy skies.

Maratón Internacional Lala, Mexico

Sun 5 March 2017

25.5428 -103.407

The record field of 5200 runners took off at 06.45 from in front of the main Grupo Lala factory in Gomez Palacio writes Alan Brookes. It was a chilly 12C in the high desert country and remained cool until three hours after the start. Then the sun climbed to high noon and pushed temperatures to the mid-20s as the last runners crossed the festive finish line in front of the Bosque Venustiano Carranza. Runners came from all 31 Mexican states, Colombia, Guatemala and the USA. The race sold out online within 11 days and enjoyed record female participation (31.4% of the field).

While “La Fiesta Lagunera” continued its proud tradition of enthusiastic crowds, first-class organization and strong community support from 29 neighbourhood cheer sites a significant change was the decision to move the post-race area from the magnificent Bosque — a beautiful, irrigated oasis of greenery in the desert and the finest feature of Torreon — to a nearby parking lot. The organisers also ditched the elite field. Subtly, “Maraton Internacional Lala” became “Maraton Lala” and “La Fiesta Lagunera” became “La fiesta de los Laguneros”.

Slower winning times still produced some good local drama. Mexico City’s Ciro Perez Barragan pushed a group of eight through the early stages before taking off on his own. He was caught and passed in the final 2km by “Lagunero” Daniel Ortiz. The women’s race was a thrilling duel between two Laguneras. Marie Isabel Velez and Ana Maria Ortiz ran side by side for 42km before Velez sprinted away over the final 200m to take the tape under the Grito del Triunfo arch.

When the ubiquitous desert dust settles it will be interesting to see what international dairy conglomerate Grupo Lala decides to do for next year’s 30th anniversary edition. This once-proud race staged the fastest marathon in all of Latin America (2:08:17) as recently as 2011.

World’s Best 10k Race, Puerto Rico

Sun 26 February 2017

18.4663 -66.1057

Kenya’s Mary Wacera defended her title winning by almost 100m from Ethiopia’s Mamitu Daska while USA’s Samuel Chelanga pipped Phillip Langat by two seconds.

On a new course without the landmark Teodoro Moscoso Bridge, seven women passed 3km together in 9:12. By 8km, reached in 25:13, it was down to Wacera, Gelete Burka and Magdalene Masai. Just as in her previous victories here she proved to have the strongest finish, while Daska overtook a fading Burka in the final stages.

In the men’s race Chelanga ran through 3km as part of an 11-man pack in 8:27. Five of them were still together at 8km, reached in 22:36. Chelanga and Langat eased away from the other three but when it came to the finish Chelanga forged ahead to win.

The 20th San Juan World’s Best 10k drew more than 6500 runners and honoured Puerto Rico’s Major League Baseball Hall of Famer Ivan Rodriguez. The race also served as the NACAC 10km Cup, which was won by the USA ahead of Canada and Puerto Rico.

The new course took runners from the Sixto Escobar Park to the scenic Old San Juan, a UNESCO World Heritage site, before returning to the same park to finish.

IAAF President Sebastian Coe ran the race following his participation at the annual NACAC Council in San Juan. The two-time Olympic gold medallist covered the distance in 48:05.

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.

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 Kirwa 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.

Osaka Women’s Marathon, Japan

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, 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. A group of 13 passed through halfway in 1:04:49 and the pace stayed steady as far as 30km with seven men still together at that point. 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 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.
