Dream debut for Partridge at Seville Marathon

by Press Release
Monday 20th February 2017
 
 
Britain’s Lily Partridge pulled off a dream marathon debut in the Seville Marathon, finishing in 4th place in 2.32. The former English National Cross Country Champion and British 10k road champ decided to see what she could do at the marathon and she looks like a fantastic bet for the future. 
 
In the men’s race Kenyan Erikus Titus broke the course record in 2h07:43 in a thrilling race through the city centre of Seville. Titus, in his second marathon, pulled off an amazing race, controlling the leading pack and pulling away at the 37k point to take the victory at the Finish Line of the track of the La Cartuja Stadium, the same that hosted the Athletics World Championship in 1999. Tariku Kebede Kinfu (ETH) was second man in 2h07:48, just 5 seconds behind Titus, with an impressive pace at the last kilometres, and Kimpemboi Kipsang (KEN, 2h12:29), finally got the third position. 
 
In the women’s race Spanish runner Paula Gonzalez Berodia did it again and got her second victory in Sevilla, setting a new personal best in 2h28:54, overtaking all the African athletes in the process(Kenian Ngigi was second, 2h30:49, and Ethiopian Diba Bedada, third in 2h31:47).
