Yakult 10-Miler Race – Press Release
Kenyan Daniel Coringgo easily ruled the Yakult 10-miler that started and ended yesterday at the Cultural Center of the Philippines.
The 22-year-old, 6-foot-1 Kenyan from the capital city of Nairobi, lead from the starting gun, clocking 50 minutes and 21 seconds to become the first foreigner to win annual footrace now on its 22nd year.
The win was Coringgo’s fifth in three months. He won the Subic Bay Trail Run last week.
Coming in second some 200 meters behind was Coringgo’s compatriot Philip Ronoh, who checked in 50.37 seconds, followed by 2008 champion Alley Quisay, who clocked 53.38.
The 29-yeaqr-old Quisay outsprinted Roger Denolo, who came in 54.09, followed by Rey Sanvictores in 1:01.16.
“When I heard the starting gun, I spurted right away and never looked back. I’m happy I made it in my first try in this race,” said Coringgo showing no sign of exhaustion despite running for 16 kilometers.
“I ran trouble free. No leg or stomach cramps. The weather condition was perfect,” he added.
Coringgo won P7,000, Ronoh received P3,000, and Quisay P2,000 plus trophies and Yakult Energy Drinks from Yakult plant manager Mitsuo Taniguchi.
