A San Silvestre as always

San Silvestre Vallecana 2021 is back to what it was. After a previous atypical edition in its journey and with a reduced format, the leading role returns to the streets of the center of Madrid to the Vallecas neighborhood.

Her compatriot Edinah Jebitok, Ethiopians Degitu Azimeraw and Haven Hailu, as well as Israel’s Lornah Salpeter will fight for victory. The Spanish Azucena Díaz and Clara Viñarás They represented the great cast of runners in the country that will be in the race.

Kwizera: “I’m ready to run as fast as Kiplimo”

Burundian Rodrigue Kwizera arrives in exceptional condition, so much so that he feels strong enough to match Jacob Kiplimo’s mark in 2018, the test record (26:41). Kenyan Shadrack Koech and Ugandan Boniface Abel Siwoko start, a priori, as maximum rivals for the winner in cross of Itálica, Soria, Venta de Baños, Alcobendas and Lasarte.
