New Winners To Emerge At 10th Okpekpe 10km Road Race Saturday

New Winners are expected to emerge in the international elite race when the 10th edition of the Okpekpe International 10km Road Race holds on Saturday in Okpekpe, Edo state, South- South Nigeria following the absence of defending champions, Daniel Simiu Ebenyo of Kenya and Kazakhstan’s Caoline Chepkoech Kipkiriu.

Ebenyo set a new 28:28 course record in his debut in the race last year but will not be available this time around because of the Kenyan’s trials for the 10,000m event same day in far away Eugene, USA at the Prefontain Diamond League meeting.

In Ebenyo’s absence, country man, Edward Zakayo Pingua will lead the charge to not only win the title but also attempt to break the course record set last year.
