Kenyan Kipngeno Mutai and Carmela Duhig ruled the men’s and women’s category, respectively, of this year’s Sandurot Half-Marathon held last Sunday.

More than a hundred avid runners, including several Barangay Kagawads, completed the 21-kilometer race that brought them to the different barangays of Dumaguete, which accorded them with special and jovial receptions.

The top three finishers for the men’s category: Kipngeno Mutai, 1ST Place (1:17:28); Gema Magdalino, 2nd Place (1:18:00) and Erl Peonila, 3rd Place, (1:21:37).

While for the women’s category: Carmela Duhig, 1st Place (1:43:10); Mereeis Ramierez, 2nd Place, (1:45:44) and Cathy Peonila, 3rd Place (1:49:04).

Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo extends his felicitations to the winners and the other participants for their excellence in promoting sports, wellness and healthy lifestyle.

Kudos to the Liga ng mga Kagawads headed by Kag. Marife “Aping” Cordova for the excellent collaboration with the City Government through City Tourism Officer Jacqueline V. Antonio, City Sports Coordinator Ike Xavier Villaflores and other volunteers that made this race one of the most festive in local memory.
