One of the fastest 3000m steeplechasers in history Jairus Birech made his half-marathon debut at the World famous road race the Stramilano on Sunday.

Birech had a more than 100m lead over Rerimoi at 15 kilometers but Rerimoi managed to increase his pace during the following kilometers and overtook Birech at the 18km marker. Rerimoi broke the tape in 1:00:10, beating his previous personal best of 1:01:19, while Birech in his half marathon debut finished second in a very solid 1:00:32.

Jairus Birech is the 11th fastest 3000m steeplechaser in history with 7:58.41 from 2014 Diamond League in Bruxelles.

The women's half marathon won Priscah Jeptoo of Kenya who returned to racing from a two-year maternity break with 1:08:28.
