1 NOVEMBER 2009: AIRTEL DELHI HALF MARATHON, INDIA

Photos: Marathon-photos.com

Cool early morning conditions promised some fast running, but the fierce pace at the start was probably what prevented even faster winning times than that under the hour by Deriba Merga and under 67 minutes by Mary Keitany. The women's word half marathon champion from Birmingham three weeks previously started particularly fast, passing the first kilometre in 2:59 and 10km in 30:40. By that point she had shed all opposition, with Peninah Arusei trying in vain to prevent the gap widening. The only question was quite how fast a time she would end up with. Ayelew Wude, who had started more cautiously, came through the field in the final stages for a well-judged runner up spot.

Merga was almost as enthusiastic a starter as Keitany, and by 7km he had strung out the early pack as only his countrymen Eshetu Wendimu and Tilahun Regassa remained alongside him. Wilson Kipsang and Titus Masai lagged by around 40m as they took the first turnaround in Rajpath just after 9km. They passed through 10km in 27:45, practically on world record schedule, but inevitably slowed on the return journey. Regassa dropped back shortly after halfway, and Merga edged ahead of Wondimu in the closing kilometres to retain the title he won last year.

1 NOVEMBER 2009: JOONGANG SEOUL MARATHON, KOREA

In the 11th edition of the race 11,000 runners from 25 countries ran the marathon, and nearly as many again ran the associated 10km event. Kenyans dominated the men's event but the women's race was effectively a domestic competition.

Eight runners went through 10km in 30 minutes and slowed only slightly to pass 20km in 61 minutes. After 25km the group slowly splintered under a pace set mainly by Francis Kibiwott. Between 35-40km he traded surges with his remaining opponent, David Kipkorir. It was only in the final desperate lunge for the line that Kibiwott prevailed.

In the women's race Sung-Young Lee defended her title with cautious racing tactics. She lagged the leaders in the early stages but by halfway had race leader Seong Eun Kim in her sights. She continued to run strongly and went on to take a convincing win.

8 NOVEMBER 2009: ATHENS CLASSIC MARATHON, GREECE

Josephat Kipkirui Ngetich proved the best of the inheritors of the legend of Phillipides (who reputedly ran to Athens with news of the victory, then died) writes Pat Butcher. On one of the toughest courses in the world, 23 year old Kenyan, in only his second marathon improved his personal best by over three minutes, and post the second fastest time in the race's 26-year history.

Ngetich had dropped 25m behind at 28km but rallied shortly afterwards and by 35km was engaged in a head to head with Ethiopian Alemayehu Ameta, with Edwin Kipchom a further 100m behind. Ameta cracked completely in the last 5km. Kipchom came past to finish second in what up until last year would have been an event record. Persistent early morning rain lasted well into the race but Ngetich said: "the rain wasn't really a problem, but the course is tough".

After a flat start, which takes the runners round the tomb of the Athenian soldiers who died in the celebrated battle in 490BC, the road from Marathon to Athens climbs from 11-31km, which is to say, a half-marathon uphill, before the gentle decline into the city, with the finish in the atmospheric Panathenaiko, the marble stadium built for the inaugural modern Olympics in 1896.

Akemi Ozaki of Japan was overjoyed to have won the women's race on what she called "this historic course". Ozaki tracked the leading trio of Natalia Volgina of Russia, Sviatlana Kouhan of Belarus, and Ethiopian Eshetu Degefa through halfway before dropping away at 30km. "I decided it was wiser to run at a steady pace," she said. She was back with the leaders within 2km and broke away with Degefa at 35km, dropping the Ethiopian at 39km. "I was a little worried at first, because the surface was really slippery with the rain. But when I got to 39km, I said to myself, now is the time to really run".

Next year's event marks the 2500th anniversary of the Battle of Marathon, a little skirmish described by many historians as the most crucial event in European history. But it is also an opportunity for every marathon runner to come and pay their respects to the place (and the time) where their event truly began. But you'd better be sharp, because entries will be limited.

15 NOVEMBER 2009: BIG SUR HALF MARATHON ON MONTEREY BAY, USA

Near perfect racing conditions made for fast times and a memorabble experience for 5500 finishers. Foremost among these was Stephen Muange originally from Kenya, who recorded the second fastest time in the event's seven-year history. A tight pack of elites tore through the first two miles in 9:57. Near mile 3, Muange and Ezkyas Sisay pulled away from the other hopefuls, opening a 26 second lead by mile 4. On the event's steepest hill rising into downtown Pacific Grove, Muange powered ahead to put away Sisay, his final challenger. A 4:38 fifth mile ended any questions about the winner of this year's event. As Muange continued his solo race, Sergio Reyes slowly closed in on Sisay. Sisay, a native Ethiopian who now trains in Flagstaff, AZ, won an all-out sprint for second with Reyes one second behind.

The female competition was a four woman battle until the turnaround point just prior to mile 8. Mary Akor (CA), the 2005 Big Sur International Marathon champion, Lauren Johnson (OR), Fiona Docherty (CO), and Peris Chumba (CO) jostled for position while drafting behind some fast male runners. Akor, originally from Nigeria, made her move just past the turnaround and pulled away to win by almost one minute. Docherty, a native New Zealander, who now trains in Boulder took second.

In the Master's race, Kevin Sheehy of Boise, ID, dominated the 40 and older crowd with a new Masters course record of 1:10:29, breaking Fred Arapmayiek's 2006 record of 1:12:00 by over a minute and a half. Magdalena Visser and Mary Coordt waged a good battle for the women's Master's crown with Visser of San Francisco, CA, taking the title in a time of 1:20:13, 14 seconds ahead of Coordt.

22 NOVEMBER 2009: ETHIOPIAN AIRLINES GREAT ETHIOPIAN RUN

Koreni Jelila and Tilahun Regassa won the 9th edition of the race in new course records, writes Elshadai Negash. Jelila reproduced her winning form of one week earlier when she had won the season's first domestic cross-country race of 2009 by breaking clear of Mestawot Tufa and Belaynesh Oljira in the last mile of the race. Regassa had a much harder struggle in a race led for most of the way by Abera Kuma, only getting the better of his younger rival in a fierce sprint over the final 200m. In breaking the course records, both athletes picked up a bonus of 10,000 birr ($800) to add to their prizewinning of 25,000 Birr ($2,000).

An estimated 34,000 took part in the race which included around 2,000 unofficial runners, thus beating the previous total of 31,500 set last year.

The races were started by the Mayor of Addis Ababa Kuma Demeksa standing alongside Haile Gebrselassie, Derartu Tulu and Paula Radcliffe. Radcliffe has been in Addis Ababa for the weekend supporting a number of events and projects connected with the race.

The TOYOTA Ambassadors' Competition was won for a fourth consecutive year by Norwegian Ambassador Jens-Petter Kjemperud in a time of 50 minutes. The first foreigner to finish was an Irish participant in a time of 38 minutes who came to Addis Ababa with a group of 72 Irish runners raising funds for ORBIS Ireland. Assefa Gebrselassie, the older brother of Haile Gebrselassie finished his ninth consecutive Great Ethiopian Run 10km in just under 39 minutes.

22 NOVEMBER 2009: VALENCIA HALF MARATHON, SPAIN

Geoffrey Kiprono Mutai, in his first ever half marathon run outside of his country Kenya, won with an outstanding performance of 59:30, beating his colleague Wilson Kipsang Kiprotich who pushed him all the way to finish only three seconds adrift. The race attracted a record 6050 entries and ended up with 5353 finishers.

A very competitive course, mild weather (18°C at the start, 20°C at the finish), and very little wind, gave the talented elite field perfect conditions in which to realise the organizer's target of running under the hour.

Guided by the first pacemaker Boniface Kirui, the leaders passed 5km in 14:02, 10km in 28:21, and the 15km in 42:34, at which point only Mutai and Kiprotich were left. Victory was decided in the last 800m, with a strong surge by the winner, using the same strategy as he employed in the Eindhoven Marathon. Both Mutai and Kiprotich said that without wind they might have made even a better performance, maybe 20 to 30 seconds better.

In the women's race, there was no fight, and Beatrice Jepchumba from Kenya led the race from start to finish, crossing the finish line in 1:15:31.

After a few very hot days, rain arrived in time to refresh the athletes at the 08.00 start of the 15th edition. Kenyan Titus Kipkosgei Kibii, Ethiopian Kende Ademe and Brazilian David Benedito de Macedo took the early lead, but Kibii provedby far the strongest.

As part of the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Brazil and South Korea, there was a Tae Kwon Do presentation before the awards ceremony, when Sports Secretary Walter Feldman presented the Zumbi dos Palmares Trophy and spoke about the event: "Today, we see a massive public presence in one of the best races in São Paulo.

27-29 NOVEMBER 2009: MALTA CHALLENGE MARATHON

The first stage of 11.195km stage of the 19th edition started at Mdina with 133 runners, of which 98 were Maltese and 35 from overseas.

Previous four-time female winner, Carmen Hili was recovering from injury and last year's and also a four-time winner, Carol Walsh was injured in training the day before, leaving the women's race wide open.

Defending champion and two-time winner Jonathan Balzan was on the start line. It was evident from the start that he meant business and soon opened a gap from previous winner Brian Magri. Debuting Challenge runner Marisa Muscat took the women's race by 18 seconds from Caroliine Ciappara.

Stage 2, 6km, started and finished in Birzebbuga on Saturday 28th November with no dropouts This short loop normally sees the appearance of the faster runners but really held no suprises as Balzan and Muscat led the whole way.

Balzan's lead over Magri and Muscat's a lead over Ciappara left them in commanding positions, but neither ran defensively — they set out with vengence and substatially increased their winning margins. Both are coached by Roger Zammit of St Patrick's AC.

Eight days of excellent weather left all the visitors very well satisfied.
