Fukuoka International Open Marathon Championship, Japan

Sun 6 December 2015

Kenya’s former world record holder Patrick Makau successfully defended his in 2:08:18 the first to win back-to-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.

Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore, Singapore

Eight men (excluding pacemakers) went through halfway in 1:08:56. Despite Julius Maisei pushing the pace much of the time, the lead pack had only dropped by two at 30km. Maisei continued to dictate the tempo for most of the next 5km still to little effect but when he surged at 35km he was never headed. 2013 Singapore Marathon winner Luka Chelimo came through strongly in the final 5km after trailing the leaders by 14 seconds at 35km but picked off all except Maisei over the next 6km.

Nine women passed halfway in 1:25:16 and 25km in 1:41:00 but over the next 3km marathon debutante Doris Changeywo and fellow Kenyans Peninah Arusei and Sharon Cherop upped the pace to drop all others. After 35km Arusei started to fall back. Then Changeywo started to drop Cherop as they approached 40km. In the final 2km Cherop struggled and Arusei went past her to take second place.

Great Ethiopian Run 10km, Ethiopia

Sun 22 November 2015

8.9806 38.7578

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”.

The Great Ethiopian Run returned to its birthplace with both start and finish on historic Meskel Square for the first time in three years. Another new bit of history added was that it was to be Haile Gebreselassie’s swansong, performed in the race of which he is Patron.

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 train. That is different. Thanks to the government for allowing us to return to this square.”

“I saw [the ministers] only at the beginning. 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.

Ethiopia’s Amane Gobena defended her title but fell short of bettering the course record she had targeted writes Phil Minshull. She led by 25 seconds at 5km and one minute at 10km. 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 over 400m. Kiplagat was second again after also finishing as the runner up two years ago.

Shanghai International Marathon, China

Sun 8 November 2015

31.2304 121.474

Kenya’s Paul Lonyangata outpaced two-time defending champion Stephen Mokoka to win in a course record writes Vincent Wu.

The men’s race started fast in good conditions and a lead group of 10 passed 10km in 28:20 but then slowed reaching 20km in 59:40 and 30km in 1:30:50. By the last 10km it was down to four runners and Mokoko was the first to try to pull away but Lonyangata was still with him at 36km and by 37.5km it was the Kenyan who started to take over the lead. 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.

Rael Kiyara held off a strong challenge from Ethiopia’s Letebrhan Haylay to win the women’s race. Earlier this year she had set a course record of 2:31:22 at the Lanzhou Marathon. Haylay was running only her third marathon after her debut in Hong Kong in January and a thirdplace finish in Prague.
Her compatriot Rahma Tusa finished behind her in her marathon debut.

The trio paced the race for most of the first half, passing 15km in 52:22. Tusa slowed down near the half-way point while Haylay built a sole lead before passing 30km in 1:43:20. Kiyara bided her time and narrowed the gap little by little to take the lead after 36km and she then never looked back.

This year’s Shanghai International Marathon attracted 15,000 participants with another 15,000 running in associated events including a half marathon, 10km and 5km.

French Riviera Marathon Nice-Cannes, France

Sun 8 November 2015

43.7102 7.26195

As the sun rose over the Mediterranean Sea a record 14,320 runners departed from the start line on the iconic Promenade des Anglais in warm autumn sunshine and under a clear blue sky. The course is set against the stunning backdrop of distant alpine summits but clings to the relatively flat corniche road and passes through many of the French Riviera’s most famous places before finishing on the world famous Boulevard de la Croisette in Cannes. 28% of runners came from outside of France to take part, representing 63 nationalities.

In the men’s race Barnabas Kiptum gradually burned off his rivals until he was left as sole leader by 30km. He had finished second the previous year.
Fellow Kenyan Rose Chepchumba took her second consecutive title and won by a huge 10-minute margin.

The Relay Marathon offered runners of all abilities a chance to complete the course as part of a team by completing stages of between 3km and 11km, 520 teams of friends, colleagues or family members took part. The third edition of the 2×21.1km Alpurna race attracted 1450 teams of 2 runners each.

Big Sur Half Marathon on Monterey Bay, United States of America

Sun 8 November 2015

36.45 -121.84

Two-time U.S. Olympian Kara Goucher and Kenyan Elisha Barno recorded the second-best race times ever ahead of nearly 7000 runners.

Both pulled away in the last third of their races on this flat scenic course in downtown Monterey and Pacific Grove.

A pack of eight runners headed the men’s race after 3km including five Kenyans, a Moroccan, a Canadian and an American. Among them were two-time defending champion Jacob Chemtai and Nelson Oyugi, runner up in the last two races. After the turn-around near 13km alongside the crashing waves of the Pacific Ocean, Elisha Barno and fellow Kenyan Macdonard Ondara who won in 2007 and 2010 dropped everyone else. Barno pulled away in the last 1500m, the third fastest winning time ever.

Goucher pushed the pace from the start in the women’s race. Others kept her company at times but she pulled away after 13km to win comfortably in the second-fastest time ever recorded in this race. Christine Kennedy, 60, ran 1:27:26 to break the previous over 60 record by 15 minutes. She now holds record for four different age groups.

TCS Amsterdam Marathon, Netherlands

Sun 18 October 2015

52.3702 4.89517

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.

EDP Rock’n’Roll Lisbon Marathon & Rock’n’Roll Half Marathon Vodafone RTP, Portugal

Sun 18 October 2015

38.7223 -9.13934

A heavy storm the day before dampened expectations but Purity Rionoripo managed to set a marathon course record writes Antonio Fernandes. The strong winds and rain had left a lot of debris and water on the roads and there was further wind and rain during the race itself.

Rionoripo stepped up from the half that she ran last year to make her marathon debut. She ran alongside compatriot Margaret Agai during the early stages but made a break and passed halfway [1:11:59] 32 seconds ahead. She increased her lead to the end.

In the half marathon a lead group stuck together well into the race but with just a few kilometres remaining Beatrice Mutai, Wude Ayalew and Rebecca Kangogo emerged to battle it out for the podium spots. Mutai became the 11th Kenyan woman in the past 14 years to win the half marathon.

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.

Bank of America Chicago Marathon, United States of America

Sun 11 October 2015

41.8781 -87.6298

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.”

GoodLife Fitness Victoria Marathon, Canada

48.4284 -123.366

The men’s race was fast and furious as Tisia Kiplangat took an early lead. As he passed halfway in 1:06 course record holder Lamech Mokono and defending champion Daniel Kipkoech were hanging on. Kiplangat continued to blaze away at the front but he started cramping at 40km and collapsed in the final kilometre. Kipkoech passed him to take the win.

Defending champion and favourite Lioudmila Kortchaguina was leading for most of the race but with 1km to go Erin Burrett attacked and passed Kortchaguina with 300m remaining. Kortchaguina finished 20 seconds behind herb but broke her own Masters record from 2014.

Burrett, in her marathon debut, finished 8th of 1204 finishers – the highest ever finishing position by a female in the 36 years of the race. 6800 finished all the events, including 1200 in the Marathon.

30th Spar Budapest Marathon, Hungary

Sat 10 October 2015

47.4979 19.0402

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. The oldest Marathon runner to participate was 80-year old György Kiss who improved his time of last year by 15 minutes.

Samsung Amman International Marathon, Jordan

Fri 9 October 2015

31.9834 35.9278

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 Jordan with a total of 16000 participants and founded the Jordan Road Running training club.

BMW Berlin Marathon, Germany

Sun 27 September 2015

52.5199 13.3732

Eliud Kipchoge and Gladys Cherono both set personal bests and world-leading times in ideal weather conditions. Expectations of Kipchoge possibly extending Berlin’s long string of world record-setting performances lasted well into the race: as late as 35km, he was on schedule for 2:03:30. But in the final stages, having dropped all his rivals after an injection of pace at around 31km, he slowed slightly to 3 mins/kilometre. What was most surprising was that he had been suffering shoe problems from the first kilometre. This later became obvious to all as the insoles projected from his shoes as if they were Mercury’s wings.

Gladys Cherono became only the second woman (after Paula Radcliffe) to debut faster than 2:23 (2:20:03 in Dubai this year) and then improve on that in her second outing.

A group of six runners were escorted though the first half of the men’s race in 1:01:53 by four pacemakers. Kipchoge pushed on after the last pacemaker dropped out at 29km. His surge immediately dropped Geoffrey Mutai and soon had the remaining trio of Eliud Kiptanui, Feyisa Lilesa and training partner Emmanuel Mutai trailing behind him as he ran the 32nd kilometre in 2:48. The personal best he had improved was his 2:04:05 performance when finishing second two years ago in Berlin to Wilson Kipsang’s former world record of 2:03:23.

Gladys Cherono had three Ethiopians for company in the earlier stages: two-time Berlin winner Aberu Kebede, Meseret Hailu and Tadelech Bekele. Cherono and Kebede drew clear before 20km and passed halfway in 1:10:15, Cherono increased the pace just before 35km and eased away from Kebede to become the 19th woman to duck under the 2:20 barrier since Naoko Takahashi first did so on this course fourteen years earlier.

A total of 41,224 runners started.

-33.8675 151.207

Japan’s Hisanori Kitajima and Miriam Wangari of Kenya waited patiently for their chances writes Len Johnson. Even approaching 40km Kitajima and his compatriot Hiroki Yamagishi appeared overshadowed by defending champion Gebo Burka of Ethiopia and Kenya’s Nicholas Chelimo as they duelled for the win. But Kitajima quickly left the two favourites in his wake as he dashed down towards the Sydney Harbour foreshore for the final kilometre around Circular Quay to the famous Sydney Opera House. Only Yamagishi was able to respond.

Ethiopia’s Biruktayit Eshetu was going for a third consecutive win and a course record in the women’s race. But soon after Eshetu and Kenyans Miriam Wangari and Jane Kiptoo went past the 30km mark together Eshetu dropped back and the two Kenyans led by 37 seconds at 35km. Wangari forged a similar lead over Kiptoo in the next 5km and went on to win by more than a minute.

Both races were slower in the second half than the first, killing any chance of race records. Sydney has many twists and turns and changes of surface over the last few kilometres which takes a toll on the legs.

Beijing Marathon, China

Sun 20 September 2015

39.8841 116.426

41-year-old Kenyan veteran Mariko Kiplagat Kipchumba ran down the pre-race favourite who is almost half his age writes Vincent Wu. Kipchumba was in the lead group from the start of the race reaching 15km in 45:00, 25km in 1:16 and 35km in 1:48. As the race went on the pack kept shrinking.

Favourite Berhau Shiferaw slowed after 30km leaving Kipchumba and Uganda’s Jackson Kiprop, the 10th-place finisher at the World Championships, out in front. But he passed Kiprop before 35km to draw level with Kipchumba although the veteran soon pulled away again and never looked back.

Kipchumba won the 2014 Xiamen Marathon and plans to return: “My next goal is to win the Xiamen Marathon next year.”

In the women’s race Ethiopian duo Abebech Afework and Betelhem Moges ran together until after 30km but Moges steadily built up a lead over the final 10km which stretched to almost 500m at the finish. China’s world 20km race walk champion Liu Hong ran to raise awareness of the importance of exercising among the public and finished ninth in 2:51:23.

Siberian International Marathon, Russia

Pre-race favourites Albina Mayorova and Laban Moiben of Kenya took wins in from the cold writes Natalia Maryanchik. It was 8C at the start but lack of wind alleviated the conditions slightly.

After a 13-year absence Mayorova returned to Omsk for the first time since setting a course record of 2:30:31 in 2002. The 38-year-old more recently finished ninth at the 2012 Olympics. Oksana Fashchenko, a 31-year-old whose PB was 17 minutes slower than Mayorova’s and who was contesting just the second marathon of her career, had a lead of more than two minutes after 30km. But Mayorova closed the gap and took the lead at 40km. After her win Mayorova said that she was going to run a marathon in the spring and then try to qualify for the 2016 Olympic team.

Laban Moiben led the pack comfortably and increased his lead in the closing stages. His his main rivals on paper, defending champion John Kyui and Boris Zhilyaev, faded and finished outside the top five. Though his victory may have appeared easy Moiben needed medical attention after the race. “I felt cold in the end,” he said. Kyui put his disappointing performance down to the problems he had getting to Omsk. After visa troubles his luggage got lost in transit and he had to run in borrowed shoes and kit lent by local athletes.

Including the 5km and 10km races, more than 7000 people took part.

A group of nine men were still together after 25km. Shadrack Kemboi made a move around 30km opening up a gap which gradually grew until the finish line. After a 1:07:01 first half Kemboi covered the second half in 1:04:40. All three of his marathon victories to date have been in South Africa having won in Soweto in 2012 and Johannesburg in 2013. South Africa’s former New York Marathon champion Hendrick Ramaala was 10th in 2:17:12.

Isabella Ochichi had Bahrain’s Eunice Chumba for company in the first half which was covered in 1:14:22 – well inside course record pace. Chumba then faded leaving the 2004 Olympic 5000m silver medallist to take her first marathon victory.

In only its second year the race boasted a mass field of 5728 with entrants from the USA, Germany, UK, Sweden, Canada, Ethiopia, Namibia, Zambia and Japan.

Dam tot Damloop, Netherlands

Sun 20 September 2015

52.3702 4.89517

Edwin Kiptoo launched his attack after the IJtunnel. His fast early pace burned off all competition. No one was able to challenge him. He returns to Kenya with the Grote Prijs Zaanstad having overtaken Joyce Chepkirui — the fastest woman who had been given a calculated handicap — a few hundred metres before the finish line.

Chepkirui had put her stamp on the women’s race by breaking away from the start. Jackline Chepngeno was her only opposition but on the Zuiddijk Chepngeno had to concede to Chepkirui who won the race for the second time, 3 seconds faster than her 2013 triumph.

46,000 runners took part making it the largest 10-Mile (16.1km) race in the world. In the morning 4000 children had run in the Mini Dam tot Damloop and on the Saturday evening the Damloop by night had attracted 12,000 runners to a 5-Mile race on a magically-lit course.

Jungfrau-Marathon, Switzerland

Sat 12 September 2015

46.6885 7.85822

“Conditions today were incredible,” said Shaban Mustafa who won the race on his third attempt. “The scenery, the atmosphere – it all carried me to victory.” The 37-year old ran a controlled race, shaking off his toughest rivals on the Wixi climb at 38km — including this year’s newly-crowned mountain running world champion.

Patrick Wieser, a marathon specialist and police officer from Thurgau canton, narrowly missed a spot on the podium.

It was a hat-trick for Aline Camboulives who had the race under control at all times. “I overtook Ethiopian Deme Meseret at Wixi and had no difficulties,” she said. Local athlete Conny Berchtold won a podium place in third: “I trained very hard for this marathon all year,” she said.

Race director Christoph Seiler handed over after 15 years in charge as he now assumes the Presidency of Swiss Athletics. Two top Swiss athletes joined him and they symbolically passed a relay baton between them and on through Seiler to his successor Tony Alpinice.

Rio de Janeiro City Marathon, Brazil

Sun 26 July 2015

-22.9083 -43.1971

Across all events 26000 runners took part, coming from 61 countries. Cloudy weather created favourable conditions and Willy Kangogo took full advantage to break his own course record.

Kangogo had a head-to-head with Ethiopia’s Lemawork Ketema, an Ethiopian runner who recently claimed political asylum in Austria. The duo got away after halfway and Kangogo won by a second in a kick to the line.

The race follows the Rio coastline passing by the beaches of Recreio, Reserva, Barra da Tijuca, São Conrado, Leblon, Ipanema, Copacabana and Botafogo before arriving at Aterro do Flamengo.

Brazilian Edson Amaro, in third, hopes to have secured a spot for the 2016 Rio Olympic Marathon. Caroline Chemutai won the women’s race without serious challenge.

Olympic bronze medalist from Athens 2004 and one of the biggest names in Brazilian athletics history Vanderlei de Lima was the patron of the event and flagged off the start of Brazil’s biggest Marathon.

Media Maratón Int’l de Bogotá, Colombia

Sun 26 July 2015

4.59806 -74.0758

Kenya’s Stanley Biwott dominated a quality field with an imperious solo performance writes Cathal Dennehy. Biwott was overwhelming favourite after having run a world-leading 59:20 performance in Den Haag back in March.

With the Colombian capital at an altitude of 2600m fast times were never likely but in the early stages it seemed as if he was targeting Geoffrey Mutai’s course record of 1:02:20. At 10km (31:00) he led by 41 seconds but was well down on course record schedule.

In a bid to create a race within a race the elite women were set off seven minutes before the men, which was supposed to result in the winners converging on the finish but Biwott passed the leading women before reaching 11km and had an open road in front of him. By the finish in Simon Bolivar Park he was 92 seconds ahead.

The women’s race was proving a much more cagey affair with no one willing to take the pace. Ethiopians Birhane Dibaba, Shure Demise and Amane Gobena, along with Kenya’s Sharon Cherop, emerged as the lead group after passing 10km in a modest 37:11. Mostly Demise forced the pace but she could not shake off the others until Dibaba dropped back at 15km. Gobena then joined Demise at the front but left it to the last kilometre to open up a small but decisive gap on Demise.

Austrian Women’s Run, Austria

Sun 31 May 2015

48.1961 16.3944

A record 33,139 women and girls from 90 nations started the Austrian Women’s Run, one of the top three worldwide. Last year’s winner and record holder (from 2011) Ana Dulce Félix set out to defend her title and 100% record in the three previous editions she has contested. She led for the first kilometre closely followed by the strong international elite group. The top five were clear by 2km and at 3km Jessica O’Connell from Canada detached herself from the group to lead from a distance. With 500m to go she launched a sensational final sprint to win by eight seconds. ”So many people cheering; it’s a great atmosphere,” she said.

Austria’s 10000m national champion Jennifer Wenth rose to the strong international challenge to take a creditable third just ahead of Ana Dulce Felix. Austrian national athletes backed up Wenth’s performance in ninth and tenth places.

The largest award ceremony in Austria took place after the race in the festival grounds of the Vienna Prater.

Edinburgh Marathon Festival, Great Britain

Sun 31 May 2015

55.9539 -3.17778

Over 30,000 runners from across the globe gathered for Scotland’s biggest running festival. Windy conditions slowed times and even the winner Peter Wanjiru, who broke away at 30km for an otherwise untroubled win complained: “The last mile was very difficult, the wind was blocking me.” Hometown runner Neil Renault took a crowd-pleasing second place as more heralded runners struggled with the blustery conditions. “You always convince yourself that you are slowing down more than anyone else,” he said. “But it turns out I was running faster. You have to respect the conditions. I sacrificed at the start knowing I needed to be stronger in the second half into the wind.” Joan Kigen led the women’s race from gun to tape.

Alan Mackay completed the grand slam of marathon, half marathon, 10km and 5km races over the weekend, covering 77km in race distances. “In order to get back to the start of the marathon, I needed to do the half in 1:30. I did that but I found the marathon tough around 15km.”

Scotiabank Ottawa Marathon and Ottawa 10K, Canada

Sat 23 May 2015

45.4215 -75.6972

A record 49,317 participants from 51 countries descended on Canada’s capital city for this year’s Ottawa race weekend – a series of 6 races spread across Saturday [Children’s Run, 2k, 5k, 10k] and Sunday [marathon & half-marathon].

Despite a brisk wind on Saturday evening sunny skies, a moderate temperature of 17C and large numbers of spectators all contributed to a fine early-summer spectacle. The women won the $2,000 cash bonus in the “Battle of the Sexes” thanks to some impressive racing from Gladys Cherono. Canadians Lanni Marchant and Natasha Wodak had a spirited tussle for third which Marchant won by 10 seconds. The men were unable to close the 3:25 gap given to the women as a head start but still posted some competitive times.

Conditions were ideal for the 6000 runners in the 41st Scotiabank Ottawa Marathon on Sunday morning. Overcast skies, 11C, and only a light breeze contributed to some ambitious racing. A pack of 12, with 3 pacers led the men out on 3-minute pace, chasing the course and Canadian All-Comers Record of 2:06:54 set by Yemane Tsegay in Ottawa last year. The pack stayed together and passed halfway in 1:03:16. Then the excitement boiled over with a 14:41 split from 20-25km. After they hit Alexandra Bridge over the scenic Ottawa River after 26km and climbed up from the river only eventual winner Girmay Berhanu, Philip Kangogo and Alfers Lagat remained with the final pacer. They hit 30km in 1:29:49 with the record still in sight, but the damage has been done. Berhanu managed to drop the Kenyans with two surges at 32km and 35km, but his pace fell to over 3:15 per kilometre and he eventually crossed the line 1:20 adrift of the course record in his fourth marathon finish in seven months.

The women’s race was equally exciting as 31 year old Aberu Mekuria ran a 37-second PB and her best performance in two years to defeat strong favourite Meselech Melkamu. Ethiopians Mekuria, Melkamu, and Abebech Afework battled it out with Kenyan Rebecca Chesire from 30km [1:42:42] to 40k [2:18:06] before Mekuria dropped the hammer to pull away from Chesire who finished very pleased in second place while Melkamu faded to a disappointed fifth.

12.9716 77.5946

Mosinet Geremew and Mamitu Daska won the 8th edition of the race in very similar fashion, breaking away from the few remaining contenders on the final gently downhill quarter of the course and never being seriously challenged from there until the finish in the Kanteerava Stadium. The difference was that Geremew sat within the group for the earlier stages of the race but Daska relentlessy front-ran her race. After breaking clear at 7.5km she went on to build up 75m winning margin. The last to let go was Wude Ayalew who was then overtaken by Gladys Chesir. Entering the stadium 15m down with 350m to run former winner Ayalew treated the stadium crowd to a storming finish to claim the runner-up spot.

Wizz Air Skopje Marathon, FYR Macedonia

Sun 10 May 2015

41.9973 21.428

As a result of the new situation in the country and for safety reasons, regretfully for the many sports lovers who eagerly awaited this event, this year’s traditional Wizz Air Skopje Marathon was canceled at the request of the competent institutions.

“We express our deep regret for the current situation and we sympathize with the families of the deceased soldiers. Because of security breach in the state, Wizz Air Skopje Marathon was canceled. We are aware that in this way, the marathon sympathizers from many countries, have been disappointed. We were preparing for this event throughout the whole year with a lot of effort and enthusiasm, eagerly awaiting the beginning and the celebration of one of the most respected and visited sports events in the country, but this was the only way, through preventive measures, to ensure the safety of all involved, which of course was and still is our main priority.”

Coming from behind Felix Kandie took his second marathon win in a succession with another personal best. Yebrgual Melese of Ethiopia clocked the race’s third fastest winning time. 10,000 runners took part.

The lead group resisted the pace of the designated pacemaker and took things relatively easy through the first half in 64:00. By 30km Evans Chebet and Kipchumba led by 22 seconds with a chasing group of four comprising Kenyans Felix Kandie and Geoffrey Ronoh and Ethiopians Fikre Assefa and Deribe Robi. Chebet surged at 32km but Kandie quickly broke up the chasing group and covered the distance from 30-35km in 14:54.to all but catch Chebet. He overtook soon after and went on to build a big lead.

The women’s race was much faster during the first half with Kenya’s Janet Rono storming through 10km in 33.45 and Sarah Moreira following 100m behind her. Another 16 seconds back was the big group with all the Ethiopian contenders. By half way (71:43), Rono began to slow and the Ethiopians were starting to close. Moreira hung on to the group when it caught her but Rono was quickly dropped. The group of Ethiopians, plus Moreira, passed 30km in 1:42:53. Yebrgual Melese surged and the small group broke up. She finished strongly over the final 5km and took a full minute out of Moreira. Rono rallied to take fourth place.

52.2297 21.0122

Hayle Lemi Berhanu claimed his third win in three marathons in a race in which the top six men finished within 32 seconds writes Pawel Jackowski.

More than a dozen runners passed 10km in exactly 30:00 and halfway in 1:03:31. The only European among them was the Polish record holder Henryk Szost. After 30km (1:30:47) the group began to break up, with seven left to contest the race. Of these six were still together at 40km point. With a kilometre to go Berhanu broke away, apparently little troubled by the competition.

In the women’s race Fatuma Sado broke the course record by nearly two minutes. It was down to five by 10km and the same quintet passed halfway in 1:14:00. From there the pace steadily increased until by 30km it was Sado against Mercy Kibarus. They were still together at 35km but with 5km to go Sado started to build a lead which by 40km had grown to 17 seconds. She pressed on to the finish to set a new course record and Polish all-comers record, but fell 46 seconds short of her personal best.

41300 runners took part in the 30th edition with Nick Van Peborgh winning the 10 Miles in a new record. The very first edition in 1986 drew 800 runners. The marathon runners started first at 09.00. Florent Caelen headed the 2450-strong field in a new course record which met the Rio de Janiero Olympic qualifying standard.
After a brief rain shower Antwerp mayor Bart De Wever started the 10 mile event at 15.00, setting 29,000 runners off in three waves. Around 100,000 spectators lined the streets of Antwerp to cheer them on. Nick Van Peborgh took control of the race for his fourth victory. Only Kim Ruell and Jeroen Hendrikx managed to follow but they had to let Van Peborgh go before entering the Waaslandtunnel.

Ezekiel Kiptoo Chebii successfully defended his title, but rain and chilly conditions kept times slow. Last year Chebii had lowered the course record on the undulating circuit to 2:09:15. He became only the second man to win back-to-back titles since the race was inaugurated in 1978.

Uganda’s Thomas Ayeko paced a 12 runners through the opening 10km in 31:16 and seven through halfway in 1:05:26. He dropped out after 25km Kiptoo pushed the pace for much of the next 10km. Five were still together at 35km but Kiptoo always looked the strongest and soon afterwards broke away. Wosen Feleke Demise hung on until 39km and Kipchirchir Koech didn’t let go until 2km from home.

Monica Jepkoech sprinted away from Spain-based Ethiopian Marta Tigabea in the last 500m the latter coming home three seconds in arrears. Six women went through halfway in 1:16:57 with Jepkoech, Rose Jepchumba and Selly Korir for Kenya against the Ethiopian trio of Tigabea, Meseret Legese and Abebech Bekele but the group reduced to three by 32km.

The Kenyan pair of Silas Muturi and Emmanuel Bett looked on course for a fast time in the associated half marathon until the official car guiding the leaders took the wrong route and the pair ran an additional 600m.

B.A.A. Boston Marathon, United States of America

Mon 20 April 2015

42.3584 -71.0598

Leslisa Desisa regained the Boston crown he won in 2013 while Caroline Rotich scored the biggest win of her career writes Parker Morse.

Desisa hadn’t won a marathon since his victory two years ago in Boston. After his runner-up finish in Moscow, Desisa did not finish Boston in 2014, and then lost a close duel with Wilson Kipsang in New York City last autumn and filled yet another second place in Dubai this January.

With overcast skies, occasional rain and an occasional headwind nobody wanted to lead. Desisa just stayed in contact, amid a lead pack of more than a dozen, until late in the race. Ten men crested ‘Heartbreak Hill’ together, but then the pack thinned to three: 2012 champion Wesley Korir, Desisa and Ethiopia’s Yemane Tsegay. Korir soon fell back to eventually finish fifth while Tsegay hung on longer, closing the gap on Desisa more than once but unable to get away. Desisa became the third Ethiopian man to won the Boston Marathon in this century, and the first to win a second time.

Rotich left her victory much later, as yet again the women’s race came down to the final strides on Boyleston Street. Buzunesh Deba dropped back with a kilometre to go but Rotich had to burn off Mare Dibaba in the final metres. As Dibaba faltered Rotich stole a somewhat flattering victory margin of four seconds. Dibaba, the current world leader with her 2:19:52 run in Xiamen, admitted: “I was confident that I could win, but at the end I saw I would have to settle for second.”

HAJ Hannover Marathon, Germany

Sun 19 April 2015

52.3759 9.73201

31 year-old Kenyan Chesari Jacob prevailed over Chala Bekele in the final kilometre. Algeria’s national marathon record holder Souad Ait Salem built a big lead during the second half to win easily. The 36 year-old missed the course record by just 14 seconds. Including all events on race day the HAJ Hannover Marathon had a record entry of over 20,000 runners.

A lead group of 15 runners including three pacemakers reached halfway in 64:08, just inside course record pace. However once the pacemakers dropped out at 25km the pace slackened for around six kilometres with nine runners still in contention. “There was noone pushing and it turned tactical,” said Jacob. He then surged ahead around 32km, splitting the group to lead by five seconds at 35km. Bekele caught him at 40km and briefly took the lead but Jacob responded: “I knew I had something left and was confident that I would win” he said.

Ethiopians Kidist Tedla, Ayantu Hailemaryam and Aynalem Woldemichael, defending champion Souad Ait-Salem and Kenyan debutante Maryanne Wanjiru passed 10km in a brisk 34:26. Before reaching halfway Wanjiru dropped out and Tedla and Hailemaryam did later on. With a 1:12:55 half way split only Salem and Woldemichael were left at the front and the Ethiopian dropped back between 25–30km. “During the final 2km I had a cramp in my calf,” said Ait Salem, who slowed but still clocked her second best marathon time. “I was not aware that I was that close to the course record so late on.”

Zurich Marathon, Switzerland

Sun 19 April 2015

47.3686 8.53918

Yoshiko Sakamoto had no rival in the women’s race. She took the lead soon after the start and increased it to almost eight and a half minutes by the finish. Behind her Nicola Spirig carefully paced herself to the best Swiss performance of the day. After dropping to fifth place at times the Olympic triathlon champion posted the fastest time for the final kilometre and moved up into second place.

The men’s race was tactical. A lead group of 10 (in which Yuki Kawauchi was the only non-African) held together all the way to 35km. Edwin Kemboi Kyeng then made the decisive move: “no one showed any interest in taking charge (so) I decided to go… and I managed to drop the others.” Behind him Kawauchi had descended to a lowly 7th place before he upped his pace and managed to move up to second in the final 2km with Gebre Mekuant Ayenew only three seconds behind.

Poznań Half Marathon, Poland

Sun 12 April 2015

52.4064 16.9252

Over 8000 runners from 27 countries finished the 8th edition, a record attendance. Paweł Ochal took the men’s title and his wife Olga won the women’s race. It was the first time that spectators in Poznań could acclaim a compatriot as the men’s winner, and the second time they could do so in the women’s race. “It’s a remarkable feeling to win together in the same competition” said Paweł.

The 16th Poznań Marathon takes place on 11 October 2015. See: www.marathon.poznan.pl

Vienna City Marathon, Austria

Sun 12 April 2015

48.2082 16.3738

Sisay Lemma won the 32nd edition in windy and relatively warm weather after breaking away at 27km writes Jörg Wenig. He achieved the biggest winning margin in the history of the race, coming home more than four minutes clear. Pre-race favourite and defending champion Getu Feleke, who clocked a course record of 2:05:41 a year ago, dropped out with a muscle injury just before 17km. At halfway (1:03:07) only Lemma, Kenyan debutant Suleiman Simotwo and pacemaker David Kogei remained. When Kogei stepped aside shortly before 27km Lermma surged ahead and dropped Simotwo.

The women’s race was much more competitive. Maja Neuenschwander and Ethiopia’s Fate Tola broke away from a group of seven just before 15km. They went through halfway together in 1:13:35, 34 seconds ahead of a group consisting of Anna Hahner, Agnes Mutune, Esther Chemtai and Caroline Chepkwony. Tola, back after childbirth, started to falter at 29km after the last pacemaker dropped out leaving Neuenschwander on her own for the last 10km. But she was being chased and at 35km her lead was down to 17 seconds with Chemtai leading the charge. The 35 year-old Neuenschwander, who has a personal best of 2:29:42, had enough left to hold on for the win. “The wind was the problem, otherwise I would have run faster,” she said, admitting that she had hoped to improve on the Swiss record of 2:27:44.

A record number of 42,742 runners from 129 nations entered the various events of the Vienna City Marathon.

Milano Marathon, Italy

Sun 12 April 2015

45.4654 9.18592

Evergreen Kenneth Mungara, now 41, ran the fastest marathon ever by a runner over 40 — shaving two seconds from the time Mexico’s Andres Espinosa ran in the 2003 Berlin Marathon writes Diego Sampaolo. His compatriot Lucy Karimi took the women’s title.

Nine men, including pacemakers Emmanuel Kichwen and Asbel Kipsang, went through halfway in 1:04:11. Kipsang and Kichwen passed 30km in 1:31:22, 10 seconds ahead of the group, but after they dropped out it was down to five runners: Mungara, Philemon Baaru, Samson Bungei, Cyprian Kotut and William Koitile. This group battled it out until 40km before Mungara broke away with one kilometre to go to beat Kotut, the younger brother of three-time London Marathon winner Martin Lel, by 11 seconds. It was Kotut’s debut marathon. Mungara has won 10 of his 21 marathons in a late-blooming career. He only started running seriously in his early 30s, famously deciding to take up the sport when runners featured among his clients at his barber’s shop.

The women’s lead group comprised three Ethiopians and three Kenyans, including London and New York winner Priscah Jeptoo, who was only aiming to go to 30km. Jeptoo, Lucy Karimi and Geda Ayelu Lemma reached halfway together in 1:11:23. At 30km Jeptoo led through in 1:41.53 10 seconds ahead of Karimi but then dropped out, leaving Karimi alone at the front with an advantage of 54 seconds over Lemma. Karimi steadily increased her margin of supremacy over her Ethiopian rival to more than two minutes at the finish line.

More than 15,000 runners took part in the two main events (5000 in the Marathon and over 10,000 in the mass Relay Marathon representing 2570 teams running for charity organizations). Former marathon world record holder and two-time 10,000m Olympic champion Haile Gebrselassie ran on the first leg of the Relay.

NN Marathon Rotterdam, Netherlands

Sun 12 April 2015

51.9308 4.47917

Abera Kuma pulled away from his rivals in the last 7km of the 35th edition writes Cors van den Brink. He nevertheless expressed disappointment, complaining about the wind having prevented him posting a new personal best (2:05:56, 3rd in Berlin last year).

After passing 10km in 29:03 and continuing to rocket around the Dutch port city the pacemakers passed halfway in 1:02:04 with 10 runners on their tail. Just before crossing the Erasmus Bridge again at 25km two pacemakers finished. The final pacer dropped out at 30km leaving two Kenyans and three Ethiopians: Bernard Koech, Kuma, Mark Kiptoo, Tebalu Zuwade and Abayleh Ayele. Koech led forcing the pace to the extent that Zuwade and Ayele dropped back, even though the tempo was slowing. After going around the Kralingse Plas, the lake and park where the Rotterdam Marathon has its roots, Kuma picked up enough to drop Koech and Kiptoo.

In the women’s race, a leading group of four quickly fronted the race: Japan’s Asami Kato, Ethiopia’s Marta Tigabea, Peru’s Gladys Tejeda and Kenya’s Bornes Kitur. Kato and Tigabea led througfh halfway in 1:12:03 while Tejeda and Kitur were starting to slip back. Kato forged ahead at around 27km, dropping Tigabea, and eventually finishing almost two minutes clear of her nearest challenger. Tejeda ran a tactically astute race to come through well for second place in a personal best. ‘It was a good race but I’m a bit disappointed with this time,” said Kato, despite improving by more than two minutes.

15,000 runners started the race at a runner-friendly temperature of 12C but a strong south-westerly breeze reached 4m/s.

Mark Korir surprised by running more than a minute faster than his personal best to win the 39th edition writes Miriam Walker-Khan. He overhauled his compatriot Mike Kigen at 37km, after Kigen had tried to run away from the rest of the field at 32km.

The leaders passed halfway in 1:03:23 but the pace steadily increased in the second half and Kigen passed 35km in 1:44:18. Korir later said: “I didn’t go off with Kigen… because I wanted to run at my own pace."

Ethiopia’s Meseret Mengistu made a huge breakthrough to win the women’s race and take almost six minutes off her best time after a thrilling finish with compatriot Amane Gobena. Gobena went ahead with 2km to go only for Mengistu to fight back and go past her in the final 500m. Behind them Visiline Jepkesho also improved her personal best, by over two minutes.

A record 41,342 runners participated with 40% coming from outside France, representing 150 countries. It was the largest field ever outside of the New York City Marathon, which tops 50,000 runners. Chicago is the only other marathon ever to exceed 40000 finishers (40801 in 2014). Starting on the Champs Elysée close by the Arc de Triomphe, runners pass many of the French capital’s most historic landmarks, including the Place de la Concorde, Jardin des Tuilleries, Place Vendome, Louvre, Hotel de Ville, Place de la Bastille, Bois de Vincennes, Notre-Dame Cathedral, Eiffel Tower and the Bois de Boulogne before finishing on the Avenue Foch.

35.8694 128.606

Both recording their second career victories Girmay Birhanu and Meselech Melkamu made it three times in six years that Ethiopian had won both titles in Daegu writes Jon Mulkeen. Birhanu’s winning time was the second-fastest recorded while Melkamu finished over two minutes ahead of her nearest rival.

Six men led through the first half, but Birhanu forged ahead in the final miles for an emphatic win. Making his marathon debut, 20-year-old Son Myeong-Jon was the top Korean finisher in fifth.

The women’s race played out in much the same way as Melkamu built up an unassailable lead in the second half of the race. It was her slowest time yet but her first victory since her debut in Frankfurt three years ago. Yeum Ko-Eun, the top Korean finisher, improved on her debut time by almost nine minutes. 14,452 runners finished the race.

Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon, Republic of South Africa

Sat 4 April 2015

-33.9346 18.5034

The tiny mountain kingdom of Lesotho took two podium places which winner Motlokoa Nkhabutlane put down to their strong focus on group training. The day’s biggest surprise was Caroline Wöstmann’s win in the women’s race — the first by a South African since 2001. She improved 70 minutes on her 2014 time. Wöstmann inched her way to the front of the pack until she finally passed Podnebesnova, who had maintained a strong lead until that point, in the final 5km.

Stephen Mokoka successfully defended his Half Marathon title in a sprint finish. The Phalula twins dominated the women’s race, with Lebogang winning and her sister Diana (defending her 2014 title) finishing third.

Title Sponsor Old Mutual had originally offered a million-rand prize to anyone breaking the 56km records, but the times set in 1988–89 remain in place for another year.

Wilson Loyanae posted the event’s second fastest ever winning time writes Phil Minshull. The fastest time 2:05:37 was also run by Loyanae, three years ago. Felix Kipchirchir Kiprotich finished strongly to take second in a new personal best.

After passing halfway 1:02:57 Loyanae pushed on after 30km to splinter the pack with a 14:18 split from 30-35km. Jacob Kibet trailed by 15 seconds, and was caught by Kiprotich at 39km. {Passing through 40km in 1:59:36 a new course record still seemed a possibility but it gradually slipped from Loyana’s grasp as he recorded a slightly weary 6:35 for the final 2195m. In 10th, Switzerland’s Abraham Tadesse fell over four minutes short of beating Viktor Rothlin’s national record.

Pre-race women’s favourite Guteni Shone could not get close to her 2:23:32 personal best but she finished almost two minutes clear. Local Seong-Eun Kim, who had finished fourth in this race for the past three years, finally made the podium in runner-up spot.

This year was the 71st edition of an event which was first run in 1931 over 14.5 miles and, despite several interruptions due to World War II and the Korean War, is the third oldest road race in Asia surpassed only by two Japanese Ekiden (Marathon relay) races.

The sold-out field of 188 participants from 20 countries braved the brutally hilly courses on rudimentary gravel roads that connect the research bases of Uruguay, Chile, China and Russia on King George Island. Eighteen research base personnel from Chile, Russia and China also took part. The races are held on consecutive days to observe an environmental restriction of no more than 100 visitors on shore in any single landing area. Results from both days are combined to determine the winners and overall place.

The first race followed a summertime snowstorm the day before. Rising temperatures melted the 10cm of snow and turned the race into a muddy obstacle course that included navigating around glacial streams. Runners on the second day faced much colder temperatures than the 4C the day before. Wind gusted up to 50km/hour.

In the second race Andrew Morris broke away from a pack of five runners after 15km and held on to win: “In the last two miles it got really cold,” said Morris. “I had to stop running 800m from the finish to put my jacket on.” Debra Patskowski. also racing on the second day, was startled by a fur seal during her run but won the women’s division.

29 runners met their goal of running a marathon or half-marathon on all seven continents and were inducted into the Seven Continents Club™ during the post-race awards ceremony at an outdoor barbecue.

Runners depart from Ushuaia in Argentina, on the Akademik loffe or Akademik Vavilov, Russian ice-classed ships, for a two-day crossing of the Drake Passage, that connects the southwestern part of the Atlantic Ocean with the southeastern part of the Pacific Ocean and presents some of the roughest sea weather in the world. The entire expedition spans 14 days.

Surging away from Mariya Konovalova and Sairi Maeda after 31km, Eunice Jepkirui Kirwa of Bahrain won in the fastest time yet recorded in the event writes Ken Nakamura. The course was changed in 2010 when the race went from being an elite-only to a mass-participation event, but Kirwa’s winning time was faster than the previous course record of 2:22:19, recorded 15 years ago by 2000 Olympic champion Naoko Takahashi. It was Kirwa’s second-fastest performance and her fourth consecutive win.

Mariya Konovalova (40) broke the over-40 best, surpassing Irina Mikitenko’s 2:24:54 at the 2013 Berlin Marathon. Her previous PB was 2:22:46. Top Japanese woman Sairi Maeda was running just the second marathon of her career and improved her personal best by nearly four minutes, moving to eighth on the national all-time list with the fastest performance by a Japanese woman since 2007.

Maeda collided with Rei Ohara at the 15km water station and bruised her left knee, but she got up and quickly caught up with the lead pack. When Kirwa surged ahead at 31km, Maeda was left behind. She slowed and her next two 5km segments took more than 17 minutes, but she kept the deceleration to a minimum. The 23-year-old saved a bit of speed for the end, though, and covered the final 2195m in 7:17, the fastest for that segment among the top finishers. Her 52-year-old mother Junko Maeda ran in the mass race.

The pace makers did a good job of keeping the race fast by covering the first 5km in 16:49, the second 5km in 16:43, the third 5km in 16:59 and the fourth 5km in 16:58. The early lead group of 20 was reduced to about 11 runners by 15km, where Ohara and Maeda collided. Five runners – Kirwa, Konovalova, Maeda, Mai Ito and Ohara – passed the half marathon point in 1:11:08, and anticipation for a fast time started to build. After the pacemakers left the race at 30km, only Kirwa, Konovalova and Maeda were in the lead pack. Then at the turn-around point at 31km, Kirwa made her move.

Kilimanjaro Marathon, Tanzania

Sun 1 March 2015

-3.52765 37.4254

Tanzanian duo Fabiola William and Ismail Juma put up tenacious performances to win the Kilimanjaro Lager full marathon and the Tigo Kili half marathon respectively. The race is held in the town of Moshi at the base of the world’s highest free-standing mountain. William, a policewoman, halted Kenya’s dominance in the event. Juma headed a local sweep of podium places in the men’s half marathon.

But Kenyan dominance continued in the men’s full marathon – with the 10 top places in the men’s race and the top nine in the women’s going to Kenyan runners. In the women’s half they also claimed the podium places. Tanzania took top honours in the Gapco 10km Disabled Wheelchair and Tricycle event.

The Minister for Home Affairs, Mathias Chikawe, said the event has been a platform for grooming local and foreign athletes as well as promoting domestic tourism. Over 1000 foreign runners enjoyed a clear view of Mount Kilimanjaro for all of race day and could breathe in the culture and favour of the race while running through the coffee and banana plantations and then relax and enjoy the post-race entertainment in the stadium.

Overall participation in the four events that make up the Kilimanjaro marathon increased by 30% over last year.

Maratón Internacional Lala, Mexico

Sun 1 March 2015

25.5428 -103.407

Kenya’s Erik Mose, the 2013 Los Angeles Marathon champion, won a thrilling sprint to the line over Ecuador’s Byron Piedra to win by just one second in 2:14:38 writes Alan Brookes. Ethiopian Misiker Dimissie had a five-minute margin of victory in the women’s race.

Times were not the swiftest at “Latin America’s Fastest Marathon” (2:08:17 in 2011) but the 27th edition had a new participation record of 5000 (sold out in January), and 26% (over 1300) were women, a new record. In 1989 only four women ran. Famous for its festivities, “La Fiesta Lagunera” also had a record of 52 cheering stations along the course, to “animate” the great crowds of spectators. Runners were drawn from a record 11 countries, and filled every hotel room in Torreon, this high-desert, industrial city in Northern Mexico, where the dairy conglomerate Grupo Lala has its home.

The women started at 06.45 and the men at 07.00 from in front of the Grupo Lala complex as dawn broke (12C, no wind). A large pack of 20 runners started steadily and passed 10km in 32:02. From there five started to separate themselves: Mose, fellow Kenyan Nixon Kiplagat, Piedra, and Mexicans Alejandro Suarez and Pedro Espinoza. They passed halfway in 67:32. The Kenyans then began to test the group; they ran 3:00 for the 28th kilometre and only Piedra could stay with them. Kiplagat dropped off after 31km, setting the stage for the “duel in the sun” between Mose and Piedra as the desert sun climbed high and the thermometer to 17c. The two entered the final straight alongside the Bosque Venustiano Carranza side by side and the outcome was only decided in the last few strides.

The drama in the women’s race was early on: strong race favourite Shewarge Amare took off, chasing the course record of 2:29:00. But the winner of last year’s Mexico City Marathon began to fade after 15km and was caught by Dimissie at 17km. She dropped out soon after complaining of respiratory difficulties. Dimissie cruised home fully five minutes ahead of local favourite, Dulce Maria Rodruigez. Now 42 years old, Dulce Maria is the Lala course record holder, a mark she set in 2005 in an illustrious career that has seen her represent Mexico in 3 Olympic Games and 3 World Championships. On Saturday she was presented with the award of “Grand Marshall of Maraton Lala 2015” in an emotional return to competition after struggles with depression.

Tokyo Marathon, Japan

Sun 22 February 2015

35.6895 139.692

For the first time in the nine year history of the event, runners from the same nation won both men’s and women’s titles writes Ken Nakamura.

Endeshaw Negesse broke away from Kenya’s defending champion Dickson Chumba just before 40km to become only the second Ethiopian man, after Hailu Mekonnen in 2011, to win Japan’s most prestigious road race. It was the third fastest time in Tokyo Marathon.

Efficient pacing pulled lead runners through halfway in 1:03:08; it finished at 30km (1:29:50). There were no Japanese left in the lead group after 31km, although Masato Imai did regain contact with the leaders, only to fall back again. After 35km (1:44:44), only four runners were left together, and between 36-37km Shumi Dechasa and Olympic Champion Strephen Kiprotich fell back, making it into a duel between Chumba and Negesse. They passed 40km only two seconds slower than Chumba did last year on his way to the course record of 2:05:42 but Chumba now struggled with stomach cramp and Negesse was not pushed. Kiprotich passed the fading Chumba in the final metres to finish second in a personal best of 2:06:33, an improvement of 47 seconds. The race to be first Japanese runner home, with 2015 IAAF World Championships places at stake, was won by Imai who ran a personal best by nearly two minutes.

Birhane Dibaba beat Tirfi Tsegaye’s 2:22:23 course record from a year ago. After passing 10km in 33:44 at 10km the pace slowed. Five runners: Dibaba, her compatriot and London 2012 Olympic Games champion Tiki Gelana as well as the Kenya trio of Helah Kiprop, Selly Kaptich Chepyego and Flomena Cheyech Daniel, passed halfway together in 1:11:41. They continued through 25km and 30km before Dibaba picked up the pace to win by 48 seconds. Kiprop stayed close to Dibaba until 35km and hung on to finish second, improving her personal best by more than three minutes, while Gelana finished third in 2:24:26: her fastest time, as well as highest finishing position, since her race at the Olympics.

An estimated 36,000 runners took to the streets of the Japanese capital.

Seychelles Eco-Friendly Marathon, Seychelles

Sun 22 February 2015

-4.68267 55.4804

Now in its eighth edition the race is more a festival of running than simply a marathon, offering a 5km; 10km, half marathon and full marathon which in all attract around 2500 runners writes Norrie Williamson. These numbers account for around 2.8% of the population, of the entire 116-island cluster that makes up the Seychelles. They are the world’s oldest oceanic islands, uniquely made up of continental granite rocks.

The marathon and half marathon make a considerable contribution to tourism and the local economy. All races start and finish in the hotel, beach and tourist hub of Beau Vallon, Although the routes hugs the coastal road around the northern peak of Mahe, they are anything but flat and frequently expose runners to direct sun. Even in the shade the lush tropical conditions mean contending with 80-90% humidity.

Conditions reduced the winner Shadrack Tanvi to a time over 20 minutes slower than his 2:16 personal best, yet the effects of the heat, humidity and hills is such that he is one of the few runners to have broken three hours in the event.

But running here is not about times so much as the experience. Each corner and climb along the Indian Ocean coast exposes another golden sand beach with a backdrop of lush greenery, rocks and hills. Lapped with translucent blue waters and often protected by reefs, these are some of the world’s most beautiful beaches. Lush green vegetation carpets the 905m peak of Mahe’s Morne Seychellois.

All races other than the marathon are straight out-and-back courses but the marathon wends its way around the northern point of Mahe, passing quaint houses, secluded hotels and local crafts shops including an exclusive perfume boutique to the capital city of Victoria.

Over 20,000 of the population live in and around the city, which is where the original “Stone of Possession” was laid in 1756 when the islands were first declared a French colony. The first settlement was made in 1770 but Britain took over the islands in 1814 and in 1903 they became an independent crown colony, the same year that the clock tower was built in the city centre as memorial to Queen Victoria. It is a replica of the clock at the junction of Vauxhall Bridge Road and Victoria Street in London.

In 1976 the Seychelles became an independent republic. Russians are amongst the most prolific European tourists with the Gulf and Asia the other major contributors to the 20,000 plus that visit the islands each February.

Tourism growth and the international airport have allowed the Marathon to grow each year and this small, uniquely beautiful event is set to bloom, offering runners both a challenging and an opportunity to relax in what has been described as the last paradise on earth.

A lead group of nine men reached halfway in 1:04:00, on schedule to beat the course record. After 25km Lawrence Cherono, running his debut marathon, increased his pace and only Chichir Kipchumba was able to keep up. By 30km he was on his own, but his pace slowed slightly as the day warmed up.

Filomena Costa ran a conservative first half tucked in behind Abebech Tsegaye and Mercy Jelimo, but after a 1:14:04 first half Filomena Costa strode on ahead of her rivals after 28km to record a marginally negative split of 1:13:56, a personal best by three minutes and the second fastest ever women’s performance in the race.
