Ras Al Khaimah Half Marathon
Friday, 15th February 2013
2107 entrants. 1546 straining runners at the starting
line, 1482 finishers. And being recognized officially as the
fastest half marathon in the world! Adventure HQ was up at the Ras
Al Khaimah Marathon over the weekend to support the most successful
half marathon race in the region. Elite competitors and athletes
gathered for a scrumptious pasta party on the night before the
race, and the festive village near the start/finish line saw droves
of family and supporters come in to cheer the contestants on.
Geoffrey Kipsang Kamworor of Kenya won the men's event, crossing
the finish line in a blistering 58 minutes and 54 seconds. Fellow
Kenyan Lucy Kabuu won the women's event - with an equally amazing
time of 1 hour 6 minutes. For all those who participated, finish
line photographs can be purchased from the online site.
