Cherotich lifts Lake Maggiore Half Marathon title on her debut

Kenya’s Daisy Cherotich won her first debut race at the 11th edition of the Lake Maggiore Half Marathon that was held on Sunday (15) along Lake Maggiore in Italy.

The race was held on a spectacular course from Verbania to stresa in perfect weather conditions and with no wind making it much perfect for Cherotich to take on Leonidah Jemwetich Mosop also from Kenya.

Cherotich pushed the more experienced Mosop to the wire as she pulled away from her at the last one kilometre to cut the tape in a personal best of 1:09.44 and was closely followed by Mosop in 1:10.26 with third place going to Swedish 2015 European steeplechase silver medallist Charlotta Fougber in 1:11.58.

Kipchumba smashes Lake Maggiore Half Marathon course record

Kenya’s Daniel Kipchumba won his first half marathon at the 11th edition of the Lake Maggiore Half Marathon that was held on Sunday (15) along Lake Maggiore in Italy.

Kipchumba who led two more Kenyans, Mangata Ndiwa and Josphat Boit who broke away from the rest of the team at 3km went on to pass the 10k mark in 27.47 as they upped their game to with a 14:05 split between 15km and 20km.

The three stack together to the final 100m but a well calculated kick saw Kipchumba smashing the course record with a new record time of 59.06 from the previous 1:00.00.

Ndiwa followed him closely a second later with Boit closing the podium three in 59.19.
