The number one on the list of the year’s world best times will be running at the 24th Bewag BERLIN HALF MARATHON on April 4: The Kenyan Paul Kirui has confirmed his participation. The 24-year-old won the Bewag BERLIN HALF MARATHON last year in a fantastic time of 61:05 minutes, despite the cool weather. This year, Paul Kirui has already won the half marathon in Ostia (Rome) and improved his time to the world-class time of 60:22 minutes, which puts him at the top of the year’s world best times for the 21.0975 km distance.

Last year’s women’s champion will also be at the start of the Bewag BERLIN HALF MARATHON: last year, Magdaline Chemjor (Kenya) ran a time of 71:12 minutes and has since improved her time to 69:39. “We are happy to have both of last year’s champions at the start, and hope to have another first-class time from Paul Kirui, especially. If we have good weather, it could be possible for him to beat his personal best,” said Race Director Mark Milde.

There are now over 14,000 registrations for the Bewag BERLIN HALF MARATHON. The registration deadline ends on Saturday. After March 20, registration will only be possible at fair for the race number distribution on the three days before the race. Information is available at: tel. 030 - 3012 8810.
