Sheila Kiprotich Chepkirui produced the performance of the day, breaking the course record of the GENERALI BERLIN HALF MARATHON. Despite very cold conditions with almost freezing temperatures at the start she clocked a world-class time of 65:02. Fellow-Kenyans Joyce Chepkemoi and Irene Kimais took second and third with 65:50 and 66:34 respectively.


The men’s race was also dominated by the Kenyans, who took all podium places. Alex Kibet was the winner with 58:55, missing the course record by only 13 seconds. Joshua Belet was second in 59:53 while pre-race favourite Abel Kipchumba finished third with 59:58. 


There was a German double victory in the skaters, each narrowly won in the final sprint. Felix Rijhnen (Powerslide Matter Team) finished first in the men's race, Josie Hofmann (Powerslide Matter Team) won the women's race.
