Netsanet Gudeta gave a portrayal of someone who had been supremely confident of getting the gold medal at the post-race press conference for the IAAF/Trinidad Alfonso World Half Marathon Championships Valencia 2018 but sometimes a peek behind the curtains of the puppet show is required, followed by a quiet word with the man who pulls the strings.

The start list for the IAAF/Trinidad Alfonso World Half Marathon Championships Valencia 2018 on 24 March are now available. A record 288 athletes --160 men and 122 women-- from 82 countries have entered.

HALF-MARATHON PERFORMANCE LIST: NURTURE OR NATURE?

Written by

After Galen Rupp’s 59:47 win at the Huawei Rome Ostia Half Marathon last Sunday, 11 March 2018, I combed through the IAAF.org all-time half-marathon performance list to see what I could see.

ATLANTA – March 5, 2018 -- Active duty members of the armed forces as well as reservists, National Guard and military veterans will be honored and celebrated at the 49th AJC Peachtree Road Race on July 4, 2018. Through a partnership with United Military Care, Atlanta Track Club which organizes the largest road race event in the United States unveiled a commemorative race number design available exclusively to servicemen and women.

With the 12th edition of the super-fast RAK Half Marathon due to take place in the UAE on Friday 9th February, the confirmed men’s and *women’s elite fields clearly trump even the star-studded line-ups of one year ago. Reigning men’s champion Bedan Karoki is back to defend his title, but with fifteen men able to boast sub-60 minute bests – two more than last year - his task to win again, whether he runs as fast as his victorious 59:10 mark twelve months back or not, will be harder than ever.
