Below you will find the top 10 men’s and women’s results for the 2013 Carlsbad 5000 where 2011 and 2012 5000 silver medallist Dejen Gebremeskel 3-peated and Geleta Burka won the women’s title. After that, you will see how the race was covered live on the blogging platform storify (organized by Italian y ).

Note, it looks like 2013 world junior cross country champion Hagos Gebrehiwet and 2012 Olympic 10,000 bronze medallist Tariku Bekele didn’t race (they aren’t in the results and no mention of them appears in the blog).

Pre-race a lot of hype was given to the fact that US Olympic 1,500 silver medallist Leo Manzano was racing here but he was totally over-matched at the longer 5000 distance (we wish we were wrong but just as we predicted yesterday) and ran 14:57.

One person that seemingly got no pre-race pub but should have was Ethiopia’s Ibrahim Jeilen (also Jeylan). The 2011 world champ at 10,000 over Mo Farah was 9th here in 13:47. That may not sound good for him but it’s just the second race’s he’s finished since 2011. It’s an improvement over the 29:34 10k he ran in January.

The race also served as a stepping stone in the comeback of former HS sub-4 miler Lukas Verzbicas who ran 15:22 despite having a bathroom problem mid-race.
