The 29-year-old missed the delayed Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games this past summer because of injury, but he’s now fully recovered. The two-time world cross country champion has had a promising buildup to this weekend’s race and he’s now hoping to improve on his personal best of 2:06:12, which was set on his debut in Berlin, in 2012.
“Valencia is the city of running, the atmosphere is special,” Kamworor, who won the world half marathon title in the city in 2018, was quoted as saying. “I managed to be world champion here, I know the circuit is incredibly fast and definitely it’s a great opportunity to record a quick time.”
His aim is to perhaps break the Valencia Marathon course record of 2:03:00, set last year by Kenya’s Evans Chebet.
The organizers revealed that a number of runners will be acting as pacemakers and will target a half marathon time close to 1:01:30.
Lawrence Cherono of Kenya, and Ethiopians Herpasa Negasa, Kinde Atanaw, Abebe Negewo and Chalu Desu should be Kamworor’s strongest challengers.
Ethiopia’s Guteni Shone, who owns a lifetime best of 2:20:11 leads the field of runners hunting the women’s title.
