paul lonyangata: an impressive double

Over 42 editions, the Schneider Electric Marathon de Paris has rarely seen the same winner triumph twice. The title holder, Kenyan Paul Lonyangata, claimed a double this Sunday in front of his countrymen Mathew Kisorio and Ernest Ngeno. In the women’s race, Kenya’s Betsy Saina sprang a surprise to win ahead of her countrywoman Ruth Chepngetich and Ethiopian Gulume Chala.

Kenyans Betsy Saina and Paul Lonyangata, the two winners, hug at the finishing line. For the first time, the elite women runners set off 16 minutes and 26 seconds before the men, in order to offer the winners equal footing, which led to an almost simultaneous finish – well played!

Since last year, the Schneider Electric Marathon de Paris has significantly reinforced its CSR actions, adhering to a movement impelled by the Ministry for Sport which brings together twenty organisers of major international sporting events.

There are three major vectors: 100% recycling, a neutral carbon footprint by 2019 and supporting young generations via sport.



In three months, on 8th April to be precise, the 42nd edition of the Schneider Electric Marathon de Paris will take place. A.S.O. has drawn up a training programme to assist newcomers to the blue ribbon event of distance running.
