Mesfin Alemu of Ethiopia was an impressive winner in the inaugural edition of the Ibuprom Sport Zel Half Marathon in Lodz on Sunday (16). The warm and breezy conditions were not conducive to fast times, but Alemu led for most of the distance to finish the clear victor in 1:03:17.

Hillary Maiyo of Kenya and Emanuel Berhame of Ethiopia completed the podium with 1:03:41 and 1:03:52 respectively.

Agnieszka Gortel of Poland was the women’s winner with 1:16:10, after the three leaders of the race were misdirected in the closing kilometres and did not finish the race.

In the DOZ Lodz Marathon, an IAAF Bronze Label race, taking place simultaneously, Tarekegn Zewdu of Ethiopia prevailed in 2:19:41 after a close battle against his compatriot Asmare Workneh. Rodgers Kipchirchir of Kenya took third place, more than two minutes behind the winner.
