Shouldn't it be either 61:39 and 70:52 or 1:01:39 and 1:10:52? There should be consistency between the sexes.
Yes, dozens of (little) sponsors because both winners belong to Run2gether, a unique example of "fair-trade" team providing occasion of competition abroad for upcoming Kenyan athletes while managing a centre for foreign (running) tourists in Naivasha(near Mt. Longonot national park, 2400m)while devoting a % of the earnings to social activities of the area (a free nursery school, a support project for orphans). Born in 2009 by an idea of Thomas Krejci (Austrian orienteering champion) and Geoffrey Gikuni (2:08'33" Dublin marathon champion), Run2gether had as a first coach Peter Matu Titi (former National Team coach, as well as collaborator of Renato Canova). Now the team is coached by former IAAF-center Joseph Ngure. More info on Facebook (run2gether) and www.run2gether.com (obviously if you have sponsors to suggest: firstname.lastname@example.org ;-). Thank you to all and have a wonderful running week!
Did Thomas Lokomwa win in a pair of ON racing shoes? That'd be a pretty big deal.
Yes, both Lokomwa and Murigi won with ON racing shoes. Don't you like them?
Never tried them. I don't know where in my area that has them to try out.
Just want to celebrate Daniel Kinyua Wanjiru, the first Run2gether's athlete running today under 60'!!! He ran 59'59" for 3rd place in Prague (and he is just 22, 2 years ago running 62'30"!) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pv5-QK2eIoY&feature=youtu.be
