(Aug 18) Hypersports successfully staged its first ever road race ‘Hypersports Get Fit Run’ at Quirino Grandstand, Manila July 8. Hypersports is a sports events management group, composed primarily of a group of mainly ex-national track and field athletes.
They conducted a 3k, 5k, 10k and 21k (half-marathon) event, with the timing done with the IPICO Sports Chip.
The 3K Road Race was won by Kenyan Jackson Chirchir in 8:38, who has a best Marathon time of 2 hours 33.31 according to Allathletics. Second was former San Sebastian stand out Michael Bacong in 8:48, National 1500m Record Holder and double SEA games silver medalist Mervin Guarte (SSC) was third well behind in 9:20, with his training partner Michael ‘Topix’ Villamor of UPHR running with him at 9:21. The fastest women in the 3k finished 5th overall and that was Josephine Mendoza in 10:56.
Meanwhile in the Mens 5K 35-year old Kenyan Samuel Tarus Too (who holds a life time pb of 2h21.01 in the Marathon) clocked 15:14.3 in the 5K, well ahead of Roger Denolio of UST 15:45.9 and fellow Kenyan Elid Kipliomo 15:58.8.
National 5k Record Holder Mercedita Fetalvero (nee. ‘Bunso’ Manipol) was the fastest women the 30-year old former member of the national team jogged 18:37.2 well off her glory days of 16:40.81, but held off UAAP 5k medalist Mary Ann Dela Cruz (FEU) 19:00.5 who is in good shape coming into the next UAAP, and National Junior 10K Record Holder Jessa Mangsat (Baguio) was third in 19:13.0
The Mens 10k was dominated by Kenyans with 36- year old Willie Rotich 31:16 winning
(If Rotich is the same guy on allathletics.com he has best times of 1:45.33 800m (2002), 3:38.63 1500m (2004) which are below the Philippine records. He has run 14:19.60 (2012) in 5k which would be very competitive at the PNG. He has a best 10k time of 29:07.26 which is parallel to the Philippine record.)
Samson Tuwei was second 31:50, Eliud Kerring third in 32:32, Kiptala Kimuge 33:30, James Mirei 37:42. The fastest women in this event was also a Kenyan Irene Kipchumba who ran 40:10 (there is another Irene Kwamai Kipcumba who was a world championship finalist)
The Half Marathon was won by Kenyan Benjamin Kipkazi in 1:12.14 who edged out 10K national record holder Eduardo Buenavista 1:12.22, and National 10k Champion Julius Sermona 1:12.27 narrowly for the win. His Kenyan team-mate Philip Rono was fourth in a very close 1:12.35, and SEA Games Marathon Medalist Eric Paniqui was fifth in 1:13.55.
(NB. Could someone please comment in regards to the Kenyan runners and there best times etc.. over various distances. Are they working in the Philippines? Would they be fairly competitive at national level. Are they recreational runners? or just older runners or where very good at one stage?)
