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.

Tiberias Winner Marathon, Israel

Fri 6 January 2017

32.7959 35.531

1330 runners completed the full marathon and 1170 the 10km in sunny but cool conditions. There were two exceptional results: a little-known Ethiopian Gebremaryan Gebrekid Hiwot improved her personal best by nine minutes to break the 25-year old course record and set a world-leading time. The second impressive achievement was by the Israeli Girma Amara who set a national record for a debut marathon with 2:17:20. This gave him a qualifying time for the World Championships to be held in London this summer.

Xiamen International Marathon, China

Mon 2 January 2017

24.4798 118.089

Race favourites Lemi Berhanu and Meseret Mengistu led podium sweeps for Ethiopia writes Vincent Wu.

After a group of 15 runners passed through 10km in 30:15 Berhanu made an early break. Running alone at the front, with countrymen Shura Kitata and Mosinet Geremew chasing, Berhanu passed 25km in 1:15:16 with an advantage of 36 seconds but then began to slow. His lead was not threatened and behind him half marathon specialist Geremew outraced Kitata over the last 10km. Xiamen was his marathon debut.

Meseret Mengistu followed her win in Beijing last September with another in Xiamen finishing with a time two seconds slower and six minutes shy of Mare Dibaba’s 2:19:52 course record set in 2015.

Seven runners passed through 10km in 34:30; by halfway there were four of them left. Mengistu, defending champion Workenesh Edesa, 2016 Beijing Marathon runner-up Melkam Gizaw and 2016 Wuhan Marathon winner Meseret Legese. Legese has run the last four Xiamen Marathons but is yet to claim a victory. Edesa and Mengistu pulled away after about 26km. Edesa tried to shake off Mengistu with surges but her efforts came to nothing as the patient Mengistu took her chance at 35km and never looked back.
