The reigning Iten 10km Road Race champion, Miriam Chebet will have an uphill task at the 24th edition of the Cursa dels Nassos that will be held on the eve of the New Year in Barcelona, Spain.
The 22 year-old will have to get past the World 5km Record Holder and the defending champion, Ejgayehu Taye from Ethiopia. The 22 year-old Ethiopian is very familiar with course as it’s the venue that she set the World Record mark, the African Record and Ethiopian National Record of 14:19.
Chebet who comes to this race with the second fastest time on paper of 15:27 that she got this year at the ASICS Österreichischer Frauenlauf, where she took the bronze medal will have to have a work out plan on how to beat the reigning World 3000m Indoor bronze medallist.
The two East African giants will have to get past the 2019 World 5000m bronze medallist, Konstanze Klosterhalfen from Germany, the 2016 European 10,000m bronze medallist, Karoline Grøvdal from Norway and the 18 year-old, Agate Caune from Latvia who is also the 2021 European U20 Silver medallist.
