A Kenyan runner has claimed line honors in the truncated Bali International Half Marathon held ay Nusa Dua Bali on Sunday night, November 17, 2013.

Due to the organizer’s inability to obtain permission to operate the race on Bali’s new Mandara Toll Road, the race routes and distances were changed on the day before the race. The Half Marathon race was shortened to 16-kilometers. A 10-kilometer and 3.13 kilometer (Pi) event were also held after sunset on a somewhat rainy night.

The first three across the finish line among the males running the 16-kilometer race were all Kenyans:

  • Collins Kipkorir Kimosop 52:38 (Kenyan)
  • Jonah Kipngok 52:40 (Kenyan)
  • Willy Tanui 55:52 (Kenyan)
Meanwhile, the top two female times in the 16-kilometer race were also won by Kenyan athlete with the third place among the ladies claimed by an Indonesian runner:
  • Peninah Kigen 59:34 (Kenyan)
  • Jackline Nzivo 1:02:14 (Kenyan)
  • Supriati 1:04:31 (Indonesia)
Indonesian male runners in the 16-kilomter race saw top performances turned in by :
  • Ari Swandana 56:37 – overall 5th place
  • Thomas Alvian Baitanu 57:37 – overall 7th place 
  • Lamek Yunias Banu 58:06 – overall 8th place
Female Indonesian top runners’ honors in the 16-kilometer race went to:
  • Supriyati 1:04:31. –overall 15th place
  • Rukmini 1:07:35 – overall 18th place
  • Shinta Wanti 1:09:23 – overall 20th place
The State News Agency Antara estimates 1,000 athletes joined in the event, initially projected to attract 13,000 athletes to Bali (Facebook) and reduced to 3,000 (official website).

Sportstate.com reports that the 16-kilometer race had 137 runners while the 10-kilometer race attracted 273 participants. No on line results on times or participants were published for the “Pi” 3.14-kilometer event.

15 international elite athletes traveled to Bali to compete in the event.
