Gebrselassie And Ndereba Wins Great Australian Run
  • November 30th, 2008


Ethiopian Haile Gebrselassie and Kenyan Catherine Ndereba won their respective categories at the Great Australian Run that was flagged off earlier today in Melbourne.

The 15km route covers the scenic Melbourne City roads, before returning to Albert Park for the finish.

The 35 year old running legend ran the quality field of runners ragged and made it all too easy. He was never in trouble Gebrselassie won the race in a time of 42:40 minutes, which was a minute plus away from 15km men’s world record of 41min 29sec.

Gebrselassie closest competitor was Kenya’s two-time world half marathon silver medallist Patrick Makau, some 35 seconds behind (43:15).

Ndereba also had an easy race where she cruised to victory in a time of 50.43 minutes. She was some 400m clear from her nearest rival, New Zealand’s Alice Mason (51:27).
