Road Running: Milano City Marathon (2 April) - LIVE on Kwesé Free Sports

09:00 SAST | 24 Mar 2017

The 17th edition of the Milano City Marathon takes place on Sunday, 2 April and the race will be LIVE on Kwesé Free Sports.

April is a busy month in the marathon running calendar with the Two Oceans Marathon (Cape Town, 15 April), Boston Marathon (17 April) and London Marathon (23 April) taking place.

The Milano City Marathon doesn’t quite have the same prestige of those races, but it hasn’t stopped Africans taking a liking to this 42.2km in the global capital of fashion and design.

For 2017 the route, which starts and finishes in the centre of Milan, has been completely rebuilt by running legend Haile Gebrselassie 

The Ethiopian never won the race, though his compatriots have won the race three times (twice in the women’s division), but it’s the Kenyans that have taken a particular liking to speeding past Duomo, La Scala, Arco della Pace and Castello Sforzesco.

They have claimed the win 13 out of 16 times in men’s race while Kenyan women have succeeded 11 times.

Interestingly, no runner has managed to win more than once. So expect a new name to be added to the race’s palmares… but almost certainly a Kenyan name.

 

The Milano Marathon will be live Kwesé Free Sports on Sunday, 2 April at 10:00 (CAT).
