Tanzania’s Ismail Juma won the Vodafone Istanbul Half Marathon, clocking Turkish all-comers’ record of 1:00:09 at the IAAF Gold Label Road Race on Sunday (30).

Perhaps due to the windy conditions at the start, a 12-man pack covered the first five kilometres in 14:22, slower than the targeted pace of 14:10. 10 men, led by Kenya’s Vincent Yator, were still in contention at the 10-kilometre mark, which was reached in 28:32.

Yator tried to pull away over the course of the following two kilometres, but the gap closed before 15th kilometre as Juma, Ethiopia’s Terefa Debela and Kenya’s Edwin Kipsang Rotich joined Yator to form the leading group, with Adugna Takele in close chase.

Juma reached 20km in 57:05, seven seconds ahead of Debela, and then pushed hard in an attempt to finish within 60 minutes. He just missed out on his target but crossed the finish line in a huge PB of 1:00:09, taking four seconds off the Turkish all-comers’ record set in 2015 by Evans Kiplagat.

Juma, who finished ninth at the 2015 IAAF World Cross Country Championships, took more than two minutes off his PB.

Debela was second in 1:00:22 and Rotich completed the podium with his 1:00:37 in third place.

Kenya’s Ruth Chepngetich was the surprise winner at the Vodafone Istanbul Half Marathon, clocking Turkish all-comers’ record of 1:06:19 at the IAAF Gold Label Road Race on Sunday (30).

The 23-year-old went on to win in 1:06:19, taking 28 seconds off the Turkish all-comers’ record set in this race two years ago by 2014 world half-marathon champion Gladys Cherono.

It was her fourth PB and victory in as many races this year for Chepngetich, who so far in 2017 has won in Adana (1:09:06), Paris (1:08:08) and Milan (1:07:42). Her winning time in Istanbul now puts her at 12th on the world all-time list.
