The sixth edition of the Mattoni Olomouc Half Marathon on Saturday June 20 will feature the latest episode in the ongoing duel between training partners Wilson Kipsang and Geoffrey Ronoh, after organisers of the IAAF Gold Label Road Race announced several of their leading runners on Monday (18).
If Geoffrey Ronoh can translate the kind of form he showed last summer into 26.2 miles at the Volkswagen Prague Marathon on Sunday (3), then he could produce something special at the IAAF Gold Label Road Race.
The Sportisimo Prague Half Marathon has made a name for itself in recent years thanks to a series of super-fast performances and the organisers are naturally keen to maintain this success at the next edition of the IAAF Gold Label Road Race on Saturday 28 March.
After the resounding success of the half marathon event held barely four weeks ago, when no fewer than four athletes ran faster than an hour, the city of Valencia is ready to hold the 42.195km event, an IAAF Bronze Label Road race, this Sunday (16).
Geoffrey Ronoh added yet another star name to the recent list of his vanquished rivals as the Kenyan beat his compatriot Geoffrey Mutai and broke the course record in the Birell Prague Grand Prix 10k, an IAAF Gold Label Road Race, on Saturday evening (6).
Geoffrey Mutai’s competitive edge could be tested to the limit in the Birell Prague Grand Prix 10km, an IAAF Gold Label Road Race, on Saturday evening (6) by a fellow Kenyan who deserved the title of an unknown on the international scene two months ago.
A few weeks ago, Kenya’s Geoffrey Ronoh made headlines when he beat his compatriots and marathon stars Wilson Kipsang and Dennis Kimetto to win the Mattoni Olomouc Half Marathon and he will be back in Czech Republic to run the Birell Prague Grand Prix, an IAAF Gold Label Road Race, on 6 September.
As the lead car and press truck rounded the corner and chattered over the 13th century cobblestones lining the way toward Horni Square, the gathered fans for the IAAF Silver Label Road Race raised their voices in anticipation of a triumphant finish by one of the fastest distance runners of this generation.
