Brigid Kosgei and Ababel Yeshaneh added to Delhi Half Marathon field

World record-holders among those racing over 13.1 miles on November 29

World marathon record-holder Brigid Kosgei and world half-marathon record-holder Ababel Yeshaneh have been added to the women’s field for the Airtel Delhi Half Marathon on November 29.

Kenya’s Kosgei ran her remarkable 2:14:04 at the Chicago Marathon in October 2019, with Ethiopia’s Yeshaneh a distant second in 2:20:51. But then at the Ras Al Khaimah Half Marathon in February this year, Yeshaneh broke the world record with 64:31 while Kosgei had to settle for second in 64:49.

In 2020, Kosgei won last month’s elite-only Virgin Money London Marathon (pictured), while Yeshaneh finished fifth at the World Athletics Half Marathon Championships in Poland after suffering a fall.

Among those joining them in the elite women’s field will be course record-holder and defending champion Tsehay Gemechu (66:00) and her fellow Ethiopians Yalemzerf Yehualaw, the 2020 world half-marathon bronze medallist, and 2018 world half-marathon champion Netsanet Gudeta.

Men’s defending champion Andamlak Belihu is also set to return and will line up alongside athletes including his fellow Ethiopian Guye Adola, who set the course record of 59:06 in 2014, plus Bahrain’s 2018 world half-marathon silver medallist Abraham Cheroben, Ethiopia’s 2020 world half-marathon bronze medallist Amedework Walelegn and Ethiopia’s two-time world 5000m champion Muktar Edris, who will be making his half-marathon debut.

The elite-only event will see around 60 athletes in action, with the races starting and finishing in the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium.

Mass runners will take part using the Airtel Delhi Half Marathon Mobile App, running from their own location any time between November 25-29.
