Jacob Kiplimo is targeting the fastest time when he engages in Valencia Half Marathon this weekend. The event is set to take place on 6 December, and Kipilmo aims at running fastest time than his previous world performance.
With a time mark of 58:49, Kiplimo’s goal is to beat the record he previously set in Gdynia, Poland.
The Ugandan would be competing with ten other athletes, amongst them we have the 2016 half marathon silver medalist Bedan Karoki from Kenya, 2019 Valencia half marathon runner-up Bernard Ngeno also from Kenya, 2019 Ras Al Khaimah Half Marathon Champion Stephen Kiprop (Kenya), European record-holder Julien Wanders from Switzerland and African cross-country champion Alfred Barkach.
