Great Scottish Run: Moses Kipsiro & Edna Kiplagat win half marathon

by vlad on Воскресенье, Октябрь 4th, 2015

Uganda’s Moses Kipsiro fought off the challenge of Scotland’s Callum Hawkins and Kenya’s Japhet Korir to win the 34th Great Scottish Run in Glasgow.

Kilbarchan’s Hawkins, 23, and World Cross Country champion Korir, 22, pushed the three-time Commonwealth champion for most of the half marathon.

But Kipsiro, 29, won in one hour two minutes 18 seconds — 24 seconds ahead of Hawkins, who ran a personal best.

Kenya’s Edna Kiplagat successfully defended her women’s title in 1:08:21.

Her compatriot Doris Changeiywo crossed second in 1:09:50 and England’s Gemma Steel was six seconds further back as she held off the challenge of 42-year-old Jo Pavey, who set the fastest time ever by an over-40 British woman to finish fourth.
