The IAAF Doha Diamond League event kicks off the 2016 IAAF diamond league season with great fields in the distance events: Asbel Kiprop and Silas Kiplagat line up the men’s 1500m race, Almaz Ayana faces Vivian Cheruiyot in the women’s 3000m, the men’s 3000m steeplechase event will most likely predict the podium podium positions at the Rio Olympic Games with Ezekiel Kemboi, Jairus Birech and Conseslus Kipruto among the competitors and Caster Semenya faces Eunice Sum in the women 800m event.

About a week after the Cardiff world half marathon championships, I did not expect to see Kamworor back in training, but there he was at the University of Eldoret waiting to do track intervals with the rest of the group. As he warmed up around the track, he would occasionally stop to say hello to other athletes and almost everyone was requesting to see his bruised knees. I also got a chance to see, and could observe that it was only someone who loved running so much, and have big ambitions, that would turn up for training in his condition.

Kenyan elite racer Peres Jepchirchir can’t say enough good things about the Ottawa 10K distance – a signature event in the annual Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend.
“The Ottawa 10K is a great and well organized race. When I ran it last year, I did not feel any pain, stitches or any other problems that I would normally encounter in other races. I really enjoyed it,” says the 22-year-old rising star in the international long-distance running community.
“I have no idea why it feels so great running in Ottawa,” she added, “but I think there is something magical about the weather there.”
