2,400 finishers and some record times
The second JFS Standard Chartered Half Marathon at the BSD green office park venue was a hit, with the 3,000 entry fully subscribed in advance and almost 80% turnout on the day with just under 2,400 runners including the half marathon, 10k and the fun 5k and 2.5k categories.
Visiting runners from Kenya competed in both the 21k course and the 10k course in blistering speed but it was not a clean sweep for the overseas elites – we have some of our own!
Congratulations to Paul Kimani who led a field of 452 men in the 21k half marathon with a finishing time of 1 hour 7 minutes 05 seconds. In the 21k ladies race, the winner was ‘local’ heroine Helda Napitupulu in 1.42.27 ahead of 113 finishers. Well done Helda!
In the 10 k category – a combined total of 982 runners – Ann Njihia led the Ladies race in a blistering 35 minutes 47 seconds (she would have been third in the men’s race!) while in the men’s category Onesmus Muindi was first place in 34 minutes 56 seconds.
Congratulations to all the podium finishers and to all entrants – we hope you had a great time!
A special cause – ‘Seeing is believing’ - avoidable blindness
Our thanks go to Standard Chartered Bank, to CEO Tom Aaker, to Mita Lamiran and the team of enthusiastic bank volunteers for their support, as the race doubled in size this year, the 150th anniversary of the bank in Indonesia. It is clear in the last 12 months that the sport of running is exploding in popularity.
Thanks to Sinar Mas Land and BSD for being such generous hosts and thank you to all sponsors for contributing to the special atmosphere at the race.
The SCHM was run for a special cause “Seeing is Believing” by helping to eliminate avoidable blindness – some 41 million people have been helped in 25 countries, including Indonesia.
Special mention must go to our duo of Race Director, Adrian Guyler and Head of Timing Matt Wiggers of Jakarta Free Spirit who worked long, long, hours to carry out such crucial and extremely tough duties superbly.
Thank you to Riena Tambunan of JFS for tireless support in liaison with BSD and the local Police among a host of other duties. Thanks to the Airforce team for helping as marshals.
Race secretarial duties, including the administration of BIB pick up was another vital role - and a special thanks go to Elizabeth Guyler for carrying an enormous workload with a cool head.
More ‘thank yous’ to come!
