It seems that each week there is a decent amount of good race action that doesn't get any English language press. In 2013, we'll hopefully provide you some of the highlights by checking our results databases to find news of note.
There were a few races from last week that we can't find any English language recaps for. Highlights include:
In France, at the 41st Corrida Pedestre Internationale de Houilles, some big names raced at 10k including 2008 Olympic 10k bronze medallist Micah Kogo and 12:52 5ker Edwin Soi. The winner however was Ethiopian teen Berhanu Legesse who just edged Kogo. Legesee is a new-comer who finished 2nd to Hagos Gebrhiwet at the CBE Great Ethiopian Run (http://www.iaaf.org/news/report/gebrhiwet-and-kebede-take-addis-ababa-10-k-wi).
