New Delhi, 15 September: Uganda’s world half marathon record holder Jacob Kiplimo will be on the start line of the Vedanta Delhi Half Marathon 2022, one of the world’s most prestigious road races and a World Athletics Elite Label Event, on Sunday 16 October. Kiplimo, only 21, is the reigning world half marathon champion after winning the World Athletics Half Marathon Championships title in 2020, and last year ran the phenomenal
world record time of 57:31 in Lisbon.

For the first time in over 20 years, the GENERALI MUNICH MARATHON on October 9 will take place with an international elite field.

BERLIN. Tobi Amusan relished conditions for sprint hurdling in the Olympic Stadium. The Nigerian world record holder won the 100m hurdles in 12.45, the second fastest time ever at the ISTAF meeting.

The BMW BERLIN-MARATHON is in the starting blocks and is returning to its former strength. Not only 45,527 runners, 4,153 inline skaters and 142 wheelchair athletes and hand cyclists are expected to take part this weekend. The youngsters will also set an impressive example for physical activity - with around 8,000 pupils taking part in the mini-MARATHON and around 1,500 children in the Bambini Run and KidsSkating.
