Casablanca – Tanzania’s Zakia Mrisho ended Morocco’s Zhor El Kamch’s
domination of the Casablanca women’s race Courir pour le Plaisir
(Run for Fun) today as she crossed the line ahead of 20,000 women in 32
minutes 49 seconds. Five-time winner Zhor El Kamch pulled up halfway
through the race with severe cramps after leading the field through to
the five kilometer point, leaving three contestants in the leading
pack: Mrisho and the two Ethiopian contestants, Adaneche Zekiros Adane
and Letay Negashe Hadish.
