São Paulo Half Marathon Corpore

Veja aqui como foi a prova e outras informações

More than 10,000 runners took part, but beyond the numbers there was an incredible atmosphere with great streetside support.

The main objective was not just participant numbers, but to attract young people into the sport, and this effort will be redoubled next year. Corpore president David Cyntrynowicz said: "Today's idea will be taken forward into our future events. We aim to preserve our physical and social environments through events like these."

This 8th edition of the race was the first to offer monetary rewards to all categories, including young runners and wheelchair categories. "It was a victory for everyone" said Fernando Aranha Rocha, who won the wheelchair event in 1:00:07.

People came to run from all over the country. The race organisers provided accommodation for many competitors, which was greatly appreciated. Erinelda da Silva was the only female wheelchair competitor, and it was her first visit to Sao Paulo. She dedicated the occasion to her two children - even though she had hoped for a better time.

The wheelchair race set off at 07.40, together with the female elite. The elite men and the mass race followed at 08.00. Runners set a fast pace from the start. The eventual winner, Franck Caldeira, who also won in 2003, 2004 and 2005, forced the pace between 14-15km and took a commanding lead, sufficient to secure him his fourth victory. "This was a fast training run" he claimed at the finish, "because next week I will run in the Sant Antonio Marathon in Padua (ITA)". Even so, it was his fastest time in this race. "If it wasn't for the coming marathon I would have gone after the course record" he said.

Among the women Marcia Narloch, who had been third in 2005, gave no chance to anyone. Strong from the start, Narloch front-ran to victory by a margin of 90 seconds. Priscah Jeptoo, running this event for the first time, took second place. Prize money was awarded to the top 10 men and women, to a total value of R$ 27,000.

Age categories are another important aspect to the race. "Prize money is important" said Maria de Fatima Pessoa de Souza, winner in the 50-54 age group. A regular placer in the Corpore rankings, she travels from Rio de Janeiro to compete. "I got here today at 04.30. I come here from Rio because the organisation is superlative - they respect us runners." she said. She arrived by bus with 47 others from Rio de Janeiro.

The only octagenarian runner, Joao Rosario, was also emotional at the award ceremony. "Each time I mount the podium I give thanks" he said - although he was using the event as preparation for a marathon.

A 6km fun run was also held in conjunction with the main event.
