Last year’s winner in the male category Jacob Mugomeri came third.

Manicaland Athletics Board chairman, Joshua Matume applauded the sponsors, Old Mutual, for continuing to support athletes in the country.
‘’The race was well organised, we are happy with the attendance although we failed to reach last year’s figures because of the school holiday, but the fact that most of the country’s top athletes took part in the race is a good achievement,’’ he said.
“We need more athletes to take part in this race next year. It is now an important race on our calendar. I would like to thank our sponsors for developing athletes in the country though their sponsorship.’’
The veteran administrator said they were now preparing to the prestigious Old Mutual 21km Vumba Half Marathon.
