Kenyan Runners Win All Marathon Champions

Kenyan Runners Win All Marathon ChampionsThe world’s elite runners showed off their agility in the Bali Highway Half-Marathon in Nusa Dua, Sunday (Nov 17). Aside from breaking record, the marathon run involving more than 1,000 runners was also a moment of traveling. Kenyan runners won all the champions. For men’s category in the marathon run, the first place was achieved by Karithi Daniel Stepent Kuria with the time record of 30:47, second place went to Murindi Onemus (31:02) and third place to Ruto Kipkogei (31:21). Meanwhile, for women’s category, the first champion was won by Carolyne Chepkwony with the time record of 37:28 minutes, second winner by Sally Chelaget (28:32) and third winner by Njihia Anna (46:11).

Meanwhile, for men’s national runner category, the first place went to Bahthiar with the time record of 34:14 minutes, second place to Sam (35:11) and third place to Made Indrawan (35:29). Then, for women’s category the first place went to Supriyati, second place to Rukmini and third place to Sintawati. The Bali Highway Half-Marathon had three categories: namely the 21 km Half-Marathon, 10K and 3.14 K for beginners.
After receiving the trophy, the international elite runner Karithi Daniel Stepent Kuria admitted to be proud as having become a winner of the marathon in Bali. “The Island of the Gods is beautiful and become my memories when acquiring a champion. It is the first time for me to join marathon run at night. It’s wonderful and makes me happy,” he said. He said that marathon was very rarely organized at night because it was quite risky in terms of environmental condition. “The terrain is quite challenging because the path I’ve passed through is unimaginable. Suddenly, there was an ascending path, so the time to cover it is longer than usual,” said Karithi.

The first event held by the Bali Tourism Development Corporation (BTDC) in cooperation with the Bali Regional Tourism Promotion Board (BPPD) was followed by about 1,000 people. Participants of this run were renowned runners from around the world such as from France, Spain, Japan, Australia, Malaysia, Singapore, the Philippines, Kenya, Ethiopia and Indonesia. In terms of participants, it was dominated by runners from Indonesia. The Bali Highway Half-Marathon was the first event in Indonesia held at night. It offered a sport-tourism nuance featuring the theme ‘Run under the Stars’ that promised a unique and memorable experience, especially for non-athlete participants. (BTN/015)
