Cuthbert hit the ribbon in 1:07:33s to win the men’s race, while his sister Constance finished in 1:24: 18s to win the women’s race.
Cuthbert, however, failed to beat last year’s winner Kudakwashe Shoko’s 1:04:10s record. Shoko did not defend his title in yesterday’s race. Nyasango was happy to have won the race on his first attempt.
“Everything was just tough, the route and the weather. The competition was stiff. I am very happy to have won the competition it being my first time in Binga. I am hoping to be fit again for the Gutu marathon in Masvingo,” Cuthbert said.
His sister was equally ecstatic.
“I am very happy. It was a tough race, but I managed to break away from the rest of the guys in the last two kilometers,” she said.
Wirimayi Zhuwawo was second in 1:07:46s while Kevin Pangiso came third clocking 1:07:69s.
In the women’s section, Muchaneta Gwata came second in 1: 26: 24s while Faith Kamangira was in third position with 1:27: 05s seconds. Kamangira is the spouse of Cuthbert Nyasango.
