Yehualaw ran 1:03:44 in August, which would have been the current world best, but that time will not be ratified as a world half marathon record due to an error in the course measurement, much to her disappointment.

Yehualaw admits that the news that her record would not be ratified was a tough to take, but she is ready to move on and run another fast time when she take on her compatriot Gidey, who is the world 5000m and 10,000m record-holder.

The distance stars will go head-to-head in Valencia and will be hoping to push each other as they target the 1:04:02 run by Ruth Chepngetich in Istanbul in April, a mark which is pending world record ratification.

“Today I’m ready to get the record again,” Yehualaw said. “I’m in good shape, I’ve been training well… we’ll see on Sunday.”

Gidey is set to make her half marathon debut, but she noted: “I am confident that I can set the world record on Sunday.”

“Letesenbet and Yalemzerf are the big favourites and it is very possible that they can set the world record, but there are other names that can stand out, such as Sheila Chepkirui,” Marc Roig, manager of the international elite of the Valencia Half Marathon said.

Kenyans Rhonex Kipruto, Philemon Kiplimo, Kelvin Kiptum and Abel Kipchumba are among the top starters on the men’s side.

Kipruto, the 10K record holder says he’s hoping to run under 58 minutes. #Fast!

“I’m very happy to be here, the training went very well and that’s why I’m here today. For now, I am here to run under 58 minutes, which is a very demanding target,” he revealed.
