An exciting marathon season building

2013-10-23 00:00

WILSON Chebet kept the marathon momentum going in Sunday’s Amsterdam Marathon by setting a new course record of 2:05,35, and pulling Birhanu Girma and Bernard Koech under the 2:07 barrier. It was Chebet’s fourth sub-2:06 race.

Qualification with a sub five-hour marathon was dealt a blow with the cancellation of the Soweto Marathon set for November 3, but locally, this week sees the launch of the Weekend Witness Maritzburg Marathon, which for the past few years has proved to be the country’s most popular Comrades qualifier. Entries for this race are due to open on November 4, but expect some exciting announcements later this week. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
