TCSW 10k Bangalore

Bangalore: The 10th year of the World TCS 10K Run Bangalore here on Sunday has Started , once again, attracted some of the best runners llke Mosinet Geremew‬, ‪Leonard Patrick Komon‬,  ‪Irene Chepet Cheptai‬ in the world. Mosinet Geremew 2 times defended champion &  TCS World 10K crown last year, He will look for an unprecedented hat-trick when he hits the streets on Sunday morning. All eyes on Geremew at World 10K, Komon and co confident ahead of World 10K Bengaluru.

Road races around the world have seen a Kenya vs Ethiopia battle play out over the years. And the Bengaluru event too has seen such skirmishes playing out frequently. While the likes of Titus Mbieshei (2010), Geoffrey Kipsang (2012) and Geoffrey Kamworor (2015) led the Kenyan surge, in 2015 Geremew snapped that run.

A year later, though the Kenyans tried hard, the 25-year-old dug deep to retain his crown. And this time, the Ethiopian will be expected to do something similar at the 10th edition here.

Geremew is the favourite. Not just because he is the two-time defending champion. The 25-year-old comes into the race on the back of a win at the Yangzhou International Half Marathon in April and a second place finish at the Xiamen International Marathon in January where he clocked his personal best of two hours, 10 minutes and 20 seconds. And add the familiarity he has with the course, hardly anyone would bet on another runner.
