Luxury of stopwatch running on his home turf with stopwatch sub-50-minute 49.18. Special commendation goes to all the diehards who went the distance as the cooling sea breeze which so often is a godsend at this venue took leave of absence.
Champion timekeeper Titus Tobia left his and clipboard in the capable hands of his deputy, Giri Sanata, after logging the results in the short course, and took off like a startled hare, 15 minutes after dispatching the field. Tobia is now well into the super-veteran category (for runners aged 50 to 54 years) but can still run like the wind and finished in 13th place in 54.41, use and that was without any allowance for his late start.Skene Kiage was a no-show and that let Peter Baki, who has come close to beating Kiage in the last two weeks, have a field day. He scooted home in 34.10 results, more than seven minutes ahead of reigning Endurance Challenge champion, James Gurumi (41.24).
