DANIEL TAPIA WINS MONTEREY BAY HALF MARATHON


MONTEREY, CALIF. -- A large, enthusiastic crowd lining the finish line erupted Sunday as Daniel Tapia broke the tape at the Monterey Bay Half Marathon, becoming the first-ever Monterey County native to win the 15-year-old event.



(photos: SEGAS-AMA) - Kenya’s Samuel Kalalei and Bedatu Hirpa Badane of Ethiopia wrote their names in history by becoming winners of the 35th Athens Marathon. In warm conditions and with the historic course presenting its annual challenge of rolling hills followed by cruel descent, Kalalei surged away from his compatriot Milton Rotich with seven kilometres remaining. Kalalei was able to celebrate his 23rd birthday a day early with victory in 2:12:17; Rotich, continuing his return to form after lengthy injury, finished second in 2:14:18 and Jonathan Kiptoo completed the all-Kenyan podium with 2:16:08.



Field includes U.S. Olympian, American Record holder and past CIM winner - The California International Marathon will celebrate 35 years on December 3 with its largest field of runners, a prestigious national designation and several community and participant-focused enhancements.



NEW YORK – Olympians Molly Huddle and Shadrack Kipchirchir ran very different races Saturday morning at the USATF 5 km Championships in New York City, but the end result was the same, as both took home titles at the race hosted by the Abbott Dash to the Finish Line 5K.



NEW YORK – 10 Olympians, headlined by silver medalist Paul Chelimo and American record holder Molly Huddle, lead incredible men’s and women’s fields Saturday morning in New York City, lining up at the USATF 5 km Championships, hosted by the Abbott Dash to the Finish Line 5K.


An increasing number of cities today stage marathon races as part of their annual menu of events but there is only one which can claim to be the original: The “Athens Marathon. The Authentic“ will be run on November 12 on the original course with the start in the small coastal town of Marathon and finishing in the old Olympic arena of Athens, the marble Panathenaic Stadium. It was this same route which the runners trod for the first Marathon of modern Olympic era in 1896.


Shura Kitata Tola of Ethiopia and Kenya’s Vivian Cheryuiot won the top prizes at the 36th edition of the Mainova Frankfurt Marathon. Kitata chopped almost two minutes off his personal best in difficult conditions while Cheruiyot, the reigning Olympic 5,000m champion but now concentrating on road racing, improved her best for the marathon to 2:23:35 after her distance debut in London this April. Kitata ran 2:05:50 to win the men's title and his compatriots Kelkile Gezahegn (2:06:56) and Getu Feleke (2:07:46) ensured a clean sweep for Ethiopia. The Ethiopians Yebrgual Melese (2:24:30) and Meskerem Assefa (2:24:38) finished second and third behind Cheruiyot in the women's race. The women's champion had been on course to improve the course record of 2:21:01 but was slowed by strong winds in the closing stages.



The Mainova Frankfurt Marathon has been a springboard for a number of promising marathon runners in the past. The most prominent example is Wilson Kipsang, who won in Frankfurt with 2:04:57 in 2010 and then returned a year later, missing the world record by only four seconds and his time 2:03:42 remains the course record to this day. Two years later Kipsang broke the world record in Berlin. Back in 2008 Robert K. Cheruiyot came to Frankfurt to run his first race outside Kenya. He broke the course record with 2:07:21 and then won the Boston Marathon with a course record of 2:05:52 in 2010. “The Mainova Frankfurt Marathon is an immersion heater for elite athletes,” said Race Director Jo Schindler during a press conference before the 36th edition on Sunday.



 Vivian Cheruiyot is ready to run fast in Sunday’s Mainova Frankfurt Marathon. „I am grateful to have been invited to run my second marathon in Frankfurt,“ said the reigning 5,000 m Olympic Champion during a press conference in Frankfurt on Thursday. „I have prepared for this race for three months and my shape is the same as it was before my debut in London in April. My aim is to run a personal best. I know that this is a fast course and I believe that Frankfurt provided the best opportunity for me this autumn. I go into the race with a good feeling.“ When she ran her debut in London Vivian Cheruiyot placed fourth with 2:23:50.
