As many as 147 adults will take part in Saturday’s 9th Obudu International Mountain Race and the 5th African Mountain Running Championships scheduled to hold at the Obudu ranch resort in Cross River State.

The runners comprise 53 women and 94 men, including the reigning men and women’s champions, Abebe Dinkesa and Etenesh Neda, both of Ethiopia.

While Dinkesa will be aiming to set a new record both as the first man to win the men’s title four times as well as the first to successfully defend a title, Neda will be hoping to be the first woman to win the title two times and of course the first to also successfully defend it.

Also in the mix are some former champions led by Ethiopia’s Rehima Kedir, the first African women’s champion, who supplanted Czech Republic’s Anna Pichrtová as champion in 2006, and Yalew Genet, the 2012 women’s champion.

Philip Kiplimo of Uganda, the reigning world mountain running champion and his predecessor, Petro Mamo Shaku of Eritrea, are also part of the rich cast of 61 foreign elite athletes who have been drawn from as many as nine countries for the race.
