Gothenburg is ready and set for another thrilling Half Marathon and it is going to be a great competition.
In the women’s class there are five runners with personal bests under 70 minutes. We have the rising star Bekele Gudeta, Ethiopia, and the two-time winner of Paris Marathon; Viselin Jekesho, Kenya.
The men’s class include eight men with a personal best under one hour. We have the returning two time winner Richard Mengich, Kenya and last year’s winner Shadrack Kimining, Kenya.
This year we will also see an exciting group of Swedish runners. Göteborgsvarvet is also the Swedish Championship in Half Marathon. In the men’s class Robel Fshisa is one of the favorites, and in the women’s class Hanna Lindholm and Charlotta Fougberg constantly beat their PRs in the distance.
