Background

John is one of our fastest athletes whose best time for the half marathon (60:16) speaks for itself. He has competed at many of the biggest road races in the international calendar including the Valencia Half, the Prague Half and the Gothenburg Half.

His best result in 2016 was without doubt his victory in the hilly Marvejols-Mende Half Marathon in central France.

That win was to set him up for a series of good performances in 2017, which is turning out to be the best year of his running career to date. He won the Warsaw Half in March of this year in 61:12, having been out on his own from before the 10km mark. As a result of this performance, John was invited (along with Run-Fast teammate Morris Gachaga) to pace the elite men at this year’s London Marathon, clocking 61:41 through halfway.

He followed that with an impressive 60:39 in the Gothenburg Half, a race which always attracts a strong international field.

John’s next race will be the IAAF Silver Label Cardiff Half on 1 October.
