Tata Mumbai Marathon, India

Sun 21 January 2018

19.076 72.8777

Solomon Deksisa and Amane Gobena made it a double victory for Ethiopia winning in 2:09:34 and 2:25:49 in hot and humid conditions writes Phil Minshull.

Deksisa was the men’s race favourite but remained steadfastly at the back of the leading pack. After a fast first 10km the pace eased up and a leading group of 11 men went through halfway in 64:28. The pace drifted further away from the course record until Joshua Kipkorir surged at 26km. Second last year Kipkorir kept pushing hard over the next 9km to reduce the leading group to himself, Deksisa and his fellow Ethiopian Shumet Akalnaw. But then Deksisa injected pace to put a 40m gap between himself and Akalnaw with Kipkorir drifting further back. Deksisa crossed the line 150m ahead of Akalnaw whose reward was a big personal best of 2:10:00 with Kipketer third in 2:10:30.

Gobena, now 35, won her first marathon for three years to take her career record to eight wins from 22 starts. A four-strong group – Gobena, Kenya’s defending champion Bornes Kitur, and the Ethiopian pair of Shuko Genemo and Birke Debele were paced through halfway in a fast 1:12:27. Kitur then started to push hard and soon had only Gobena left for company. The two of them, with pacemaker Bernard Soi still in attendance, stayed together until 31km when Kitur started to struggle. Gobena made an impressive solo run for home and, although she tired slightly over the final 3km, recorded the second fastest winning time in all 15 editions of the Mumbai Marathon. Kitur followed her in, for her third podium finish in as many years, and broke her personal best by 13 seconds.

Approximately 44,000 runners took to the roads in Mumbai for six different races over varying distances in what has become one of Asia’s biggest mass-participation running events.
