Sunday, February 2, 2014
MARY Joy Tabal and Kenyan Abraham Missos topped the 25K division of the Cebu Holdings, Inc. (CHI) Fast Forward Faster: The Silver Run yesterday at the Terraces Ayala Center Cebu.
The run was part of CHI’s 25th anniversary and featured the men’s and women’s 5K, 10K and 25K divisions.
Tabal, who is training to represent the country in the Paris Marathon in April clocked 1:41:22:48 and was more than 20 minutes ahead of Christy Sevilleno Tutor (2:11:58) and Leonara Martos (2:21:43).
“My race was awesome, it was part of my preparation. I was so lucky that I was able to register when the organizer decided to reopen the registration because it was timely that my program today was a 25K run. My finish was good as well and I believe I am already recovering,” said Tabal.
Tabal won the 37th Milo Marathon and also broke the 11-year-old 42K record of Jho_an Banayag last December. The win earned her the chance to represent the country in Paris in April.
Missos captured the men’s title in 1:30:03, while Cebuano John Philip Duenas prevented a sweep of the top spots after taking second place in 1:32:27. He beat another Kenyan James Mebei (1:38:49).
In the 10K division, Isaac Simat captured the men’s title in (32:44:32) over Bonifacio Monjas (35:00:79) and Francis Kakui (36:11:78). In the women’s division, Lovely Fe Andrin won the title in 43:24:42. She beat Mereeis Ramirez (44:10:79) and Ali Silva (47:29:43).
