Standard Chartered Mumbai Marathon, India

Sun 15 January 2017

19.076 72.8777

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

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

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