Tata Consultancy Services World 10K Bengaluru, India

Sun 21 May 2017

12.9716 77.5946

World Cross Champion Irene Cheptai made a winning debut in her first international road race by a decisive move at 7km which she later said had convinced her that she would win by the time she reached 8km. In the men’s race 2013 winner Alex Korio made his push at the same point in the race and it became clear that no one would be able keep pace.

After overnight storms which left roads flooded and strewn with debris conditions were cool but humid. The women set off at leisurely pace so that Worknesh Degefa took it upon herself to lead a strong Kenyan group of Cheptai, Helah Kiprop, Gladys Chesir and Magdalyne Masai. Masai fell back after the group passed 5km in 16:19 and the pace began to pick up. Gladys Chesir was the next to fall behind but when Cheptai made her move the race looked like it it was well and truly over.

Zane Robertson was the early leader of the men’s race alongside pacemaker Edwin Kiptoo but the 5km split of 14:10 seemed to act as a spur for Kiptoo to press on with the race rather than finish his pacing duties. He drew clear of Robertson at about 6km and was pressed only by Korio. While Korio soon took over from Kiptoo Robertson slipped back several places over the closing kilometres, but remained ahead of world record holder Leonard Komon. The champion for the last two years, Mosinet Geremew, followed them in in 10th place.
