Results and recap from the Rome Marathon 2022 – World Athletics Label Road Race series – on Sunday, 27 March. Ethiopia’s Fikre Bekele Tefera won the men’s race, while the women’s division went to his countrywoman Adugna Dalasa.

This year’s staging of the annual event is the 27th edition and a number of runners used the opportunity to continue their preparations for the busy part of the season, which includes a World Athletics Championships in the United States later this summer, in addition to several other top marathons on the 2022 calendar.

In the men’s race, Bekele led a 1-2 Ethiopian finish on his way to taking down the course record after crossing the finish line at 2:06:48 – just missing his personal best of 2:06:27 that was set in 2019.

Bekele’s winning time on Sunday was good enough to better the previous course record of 2:07.17, which was set in 2009 by Kenyan Benjamin Kiptoo.

Tadesse Temechachu, also of Ethiopia, secured second place with a new lifetime best of 2:07:04, while third place went to Othmane El Goumri of Morocco in 2:07:16. The top five finishers were completed by Ethiopia’s Abraham Girma, who ran 2:08:31 and Kenya’s Chesari Kirui Jacob at 2:08:40.

Meanwhile, on the women’s side in the Rome Marathon 2022, Dalasa took charge early and dominated to easily secure the victory with a new personal best time of 2:26:09.

She defeated Kenya’s Gladys Kiptoo, who finished with a time of 2:28:45 on her marathon debut. Ethiopia’s Nedi Tadelech grabbed the final podium spot when she finished at a time of 2:31.00 to improve her PB.

Ethiopian Yeshimebet Bifa with 2:32:16 and compatriot Tahiri Rahma of Morocco, at 2:32.36, finished in fourth and fifth place, respectively.
