The women's marathon in Frankfurt was quite compelling. The debut of a German citizen in Fate Tola, and the racing tandem of Mona Stockhecke, Martina Strehl, Charlotte Purdue and Lindsay Flanagan found all with PBs afterwards.
Running for women in Germany is like running for women in the U.S. in the 1980s. It is just beginning to blossom. It is ironic as the running marathon fever created by Christina Vahlenshek, Utta Pippig, among others shows that German women can race quite well in the global marathon scene.
The 2016 Mainova Frankfurt Marathon was a huge success. Over 15,800 runners started the race, on a fine, cool, clear day at the end of October in Frankfurt, Germany. Mark Korir battled over the entire 42 kilometers, taking the last 4 kilometers to win the race. Mamitu Daska took the women's win, even with a irritated stomach, barely holding off Fate Tola.
