Perdonen mi extrema ignorancia, ya que nunca he participado en un maratón, pero que yo sepa el Teodoro Moscoso no tiene una distancia de 10K. La carrera toma una ruta adicional al puente o solo se efectúa en el puente?

El puente mide unos 2.5 km. Aqui un mapa de la ruta.

La carrera comienza justamente frente al peaje del puente, cruzas el puente hasta la interseccion en trebol con la PR-26 y luego regresas al puente y lo cruzas. La ruta continua por la PR-17 hasta llegar a la interseccion en diamante, subes y luego regresas por la PR-17 hasta el final que es frente al peaje del puente.

World’s Best 10K leads the pack in growing sports-tourism industry

Internationally acclaimed race turns 15, expecting some 14,000 participants; with a $25 million economic impact on local economy

What started in 1998 as a local event to celebrate the fourth anniversary of Teodoro Moscoso Bridge has become one of the 20 most competitive and internationally acclaimed distance running events in the world and Puerto Rico's premier sports-tourism event.

The World's Best 10K, one of the largest events of any kind held in Puerto Rico, is celebrating its 15th anniversary this year. The 6.2-mile road race has become the island's signature sports-tourism event, with an expected $25 million economic impact on the local economy, according to a market study conducted by local research firm Estudios Técnicos.

A star-studded field of international and local runners, professionals and amateurs—including local kids, their parents, grandparents, friends and neighbors—will run or walk across Teodoro Moscoso Bridge Sunday, Feb. 26.

Race organizers are expecting some 14,000 participants this year, which also marks the fifth-straight year the World's Best 10K has been certified as a Gold Label race by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF), the world governing body for track & field.

The World's Best 10K was the first race in Puerto Rico to be included in the official race schedules of the IAAF and the Association of International Marathons & Road Races.

"The IAAF Gold Label certification is a distinction the World's Best 10K shares with four other races in the Western Hemisphere—the Boston, Chicago and New York marathons plus the Bogotá International Half Marathon," noted Race Director Rafael B. Acosta. "For our small nonprofit organization in Puerto Rico, this is a huge honor.

"Knowing our race meets the highest standards of organization, course timing and measurement, media services, quality of international elite runners, health and safety, and equality among athletes is truly gratifying."

A STARTING POINT IN SPORTS TOURISM



"The World's Best 10K race has become synonymous with Puerto Rico's world-class sports-tourism industry," said Economic Development & Commerce Secretary José R. Pérez-Riera. "It is the most internationally recognized sporting event on the island, paving the way for the Professional Golfers' Association [PGA] Puerto Rico Open, the Heineken International Regatta, the exhibition match between retired tennis greats Andre Agassi and Pete Sampras, and the Major League Baseball [MLB] series between the Florida Marlins and New York Mets."

Pérez-Riera noted the success of the World's Best 10K race was instrumental in landing the 2010 Special Olympics and the 2010 Central American & Caribbean Games, both of which gave Puerto Rico valuable international media exposure as the region's premier sports destination. Their combined impact on the local economy exceeded $2 billion.

The World's Best 10K race will bring tens of thousands of visitors to the island, generating hundreds of room-nights with a substantial economic impact on the local economy.

In addition to the IAAF, the World's Best 10K became in 2004 the newest member of the Professional Road Running Organization (PRRO), whose membership is by invitation only.

PRRO members include such top international distance running events as the 10K Peachtree Road Race in Atlanta; the Cherry Blossom 10-Mile Run in Washington, D.C.; the Boilermaker 15K Road Race in Utica, N.Y.; and the 15K Lilac Bloomsday Run in Spokane, Wash.

The race has become a "must stop" for professional athletes in their training circuit prior to major marathons such as New York's or Chicago's.

"Undoubtedly, the World's Best 10K has been the point of departure for our local sports-tourism industry," said Tuti Muñoz, director of MB Sports, which brought the Sampras-Agassi exhibition matches to the island last year as well as the Mets-Marlins series in 2010.

PUERTO RICO'S OWN

In a recent edition, Scandinavian fitness magazine I Form (In Shape) included the World's Best 10K among its list of 10 races runners must compete in before they die, as selected by its readers.

In describing its reasons for including the Puerto Rico event in its list, I Form indicated: "Every time organizers want to turn their event into the best 10K in the world, they should look at Puerto Rico."

The San Juan race placed fourth in the I Form list, just behind the New York Marathon. First place went to the Big Five Marathon in South Africa, followed by the 42K Great Wall of China Race.

The World's Best 10K, which in just 15 short years has placed itself among the very elite of the more than 10,000 road-running races held around the world, faces the challenge of remaining on top as an internationally recognized event, now televised in more than 60 countries around the world.

HUMBLE ORIGINS

The first two races held at Teodoro Moscoso Bridge—a 2.4-kilometer span over the San José Lagoon—in 1998 and 1999 were focused on local athletes and recreational runners.

In 1999, the race went high-tech when organizers selected the ChampionChip as its electronic timing equipment. A miniature transponder housed in plastic and attached to a runner's shoelace, the ChampionChip transmits the runner's unique identification number to a receiver antenna at specific moments during the race.

Another innovation was the introduction of technology that allowed the race to be the first to broadcast live over the Internet.

The event wasn't called the World's Best 10K until 2000, when it entered the millennium with a new name, a newly certified course, a roster of some of the world's top athletes, a powerful new marketing program and an array of special activities that advanced its mission to become much more than just a road race.

LEADING LIGHTS



In 2000, the World's Best 10K reached international TV audiences when it became the first race in Puerto Rico to be transmitted over ESPN as a special program. That year, a field of 2,790 men and women competed, headed by famed international athletes Kahlid Kannouchi and Tegla Loroupe, and complemented by stellar finishes by local elites Jacinto Rodríguez and Carmen Martínez.

During the 2001 race, Kenyan Paul Tergat and Dutch runner Lornah Kiplagat—a native of Kenya and one of the world's most admired women athletes—glided across the finish line. It would be the first of Kiplagat's unequaled six wins at the World's Best 10K.

Great Britain's Paula Radcliff, one of the top female distance runners of all time, began her spectacular string of major victories in 2002 at the World's Best 10K—finishing a few seconds shy of setting a new world record. That all changed in 2003 when Radcliff clocked an official time of 30 minutes, 21 seconds to become the fastest woman on earth at 10 kilometers—a feat that still stands today.

During the race's 10th anniversary in 2004, Moscoso Bridge welcomed 10,313 participants, with Kenyan John Korir setting a course record of 27:47 and Kiplagat dominating the elite women's field.

That same year saw Acosta selected by Road Race Management as the 2004 Race Director of the Year, and before the 2005 edition of the race, Running Times magazine announced its selection of the World's Best 10K as the second-best road race in the world for men and the third-best for women.

Successive races have seen the number of participants grow to 13,054 in 2011.

"Elite male runners often break the 28-minute mark, and each year we anticipate a new World's Best 10K record," Acosta said. "Last year's winner, Kenyan Sammy Kitwara, sailed in at 27:35 and the 2010 winner, Kenyan Moises Ndierma Masai, gave us our course record at 27:19."

The world record of 26:44 is held by Kenyan Leonard Patrick Komon.

This year, the race is dedicated to Santurce (San Juan) native Jorge Posada, the former New York Yankees superstar (1995-2011) and five-time All-Star, four-time World Series Champion and five-time Silver Slugger Award winner.

MUCH MORE THAN A RACE

Along with its growing prestige, the World's Best 10K has become a community affair that attracts thousands of participants and spectators, from Puerto Rico and all over the world, who also come to enjoy its health, athletic and environmental programs and events.

A Fitness Festival is held at Roberto Clemente Coliseum in San Juan's Hato Rey sector Friday through Sunday before the race. In addition to the 10K, there is also a Duathlon, a Wheelchair Race and the Scotiabank Kids Mini Race over Moscoso Bridge. The big race begins at exactly 5:25 p.m.

There are no special requirements to register for the race, except to be age 12 or older and in good physical health. Schools and businesses often assemble teams to compete, since there are various categories for all age groups.

Competido el 10K del Moscoso
Por Redacción, EL VOCERO el 24 de febrero de 2012 en Deportes · 0 comentarios

El keniano Sammy Kitwara regresará a defender su corona del World’s Best 10K, pero tendrá una de las más fuertes competencias que se hayan registrado en el evento, confirmó ayer el director de la carrera, Rafael Acosta.

Entre los corredores elites cotizados internacionalmente que le darán pelea a Kitwara están el etíope Dejen Gebremeskel, quien el año pasado arribó a la meta en segundo lugar con registro de 27:45 y el poseedor del récord mundial en medio maratón, el eritreo Zerisenay Tadesse.

Kitwara busca convertirse en triple campeón, ya que también se impuso en la prueba en el 2009.

Entre las féminas, la keniana Vivian Cheruiyot intentará recuperar el cetro que obtuvo en 2009 y 2010, y que perdió el año pasado. Pero para lograrlo tendrá que superar el desafío de importantes fondistas, entre las que sobresale su compatriota Linet Massai.

“Otro de los atractivos será definitivamente la presencia de Shalane Flanagan, quien hace apenas un mes se impuso en la prueba clasificatoria de Estados Unidos para el evento del maratón de los Juegos Olímpicos de Londres. Además ella se ha preparado para sacarse una espinita que tiene, porque la última vez que participó en nuestra carrera, no lució como esperaba y ahora viene a reivindicarse”, declaró Acosta.

La edición número 15 del evento comenzará cuando el recién retirado pelotero de Grandes Ligas, Jorge Posada haga el disparo a las 5:25 de la tarde de este domingo, 26 de febrero. El ícono puertorriqueño Chucho Avellanet, será el encargado de interpretar el himno nacional de Puerto Rico, La Borinqueña durante los actos de apertura de la carrera.

Los premios del evento comenzarán con $15,000, $8,500 y $7,000 para el primer, segundo y tercer lugar en ambos sexos. En la categoría abierta local los incentivos arrancarán en $1,200, $850 y $625 para las mismas posiciones. Se bonificará hasta la décima posición en ambas modalidades.

Destacan Beverly y Chino

De otro lado, los campeones entre los puertorriqueños confirmaron que regresarán a defender lo suyo. La trujillana Beverly Ramos (34:40) y el salinense Luis Soto (31:06) fueron quienes dominaron las categorías del patio en el 2011.

De hecho, Ramos quien posee ocho marcas nacionales, corrió tan bien que estableció un nuevo tiempo para una puertorriqueña en esa ruta. Entre las corredoras puertorriqueñas que se enfrentarán a Ramos sobresalen Erica Méndez quien se impuso en el 2007 y María del Pilar Díaz. Soto por su lado, enfrentará el reto de Luis Rivera, Cesar Lam y Julio Cruz, entre otros.

Finalmente, Acosta informó que el número de inscritos para la edición del 2012 fue de 11,346.

Con manos llenas el World's Best 10K
Anuncian incentivos y obsequios para los corredores


El director del World’s Best 10K, Rafael Acosta, presenta las camisas que se obsequiarán a los que se inscriban en la carrera, mientras las sostienen Marcos Pérez, de Adidas, y José Vázquez Barquet, de Subway. (juan.alicea@gfrmedia.com)
Por Joel Ortiz Rivera / joel.ortiz@elnuevodia.com

Hay quienes siempre se inscriben en el World’s Best 10K por razones competitivas o recreativas. Pero para quienes necesiten otro tipo de motivación, el comité organizador tiene preparado este año una diversidad de atractivos adicionales que finalmente les convencerán.

Durante la primera rueda de prensa para la edición del 2013, efectuada ayer en un hotel de Isla Verde, el director de la carrera, Rafael Acosta, detalló los más de $400,000 en premios que repartirá la carrera y destacó que el evento le será dedicado al expesista adjunteño Fernando Luis Báez Cruz.

“Este año esperamos sobre 12,000 participantes. En este momento ya tenemos unas 8,000 personas inscritas, incluyendo a los ganadores del año pasado (los kenianos Vivian Cheruiyot y Sammy Kitwara), que ya están confirmados”, expresó Acosta luego de la rueda de prensa.

Ante invitados como la presidenta del Comité Olímpico de Puerto Rico (Copur), Sara Rosario; el designado secretario del Departamento de Recreación y Deportes, Ramón Orta; el segundo vicepresidente del Copur, Víctor López, y el presidente del Comité de Fondismo, Osvaldo Rojas, se anunció la dedicatoria a Báez Cruz, quien no pudo estar presente.

De 71 años, Báez Cruz es conocido como el Pequeño Sansón y estableció cuatro marcas mundiales, tres panamericanas y le brindó a la Isla su primera presea dorada durante los Juegos de Winnipeg en 1967.

Todo listo para el World’s Best 10K
El evento será este domingo sobre el Puente Teodoro Moscoso

Por Sara Del Valle Hernández / sdelvalle@elnuevodia.com

Con la notable ausencia del múltiple ganador de la prueba, el keniano Sammy Kitwara, esta mañana se presentaron a varios de los atletas que competirán en la edición número 16 del World’s Best 10K sobre el Puente Teodoro Moscoso que se celebrará el domingo 24 de febrero.

La presentación de los atletas estuvo a cargo de Rafael Acosta, director del evento, quien informó posteriormente que Kitwara llegará a la Isla en la tarde de hoy. “Hubo un pequeño retraso en el vuelo y llegará hoy junto a otros 10 corredores que se suponía que llegaran ayer. Pero no hay ninguna baja de los corredores elite que ya habíamos anunciado”, dijo Acosta.

Kitwara es el vencedor de las ediciones de 2009, 2011 y 2012. En ese primer año, el keniano ganó con tiempo de 27:26 minutos. En el 2011 hizo 27:35 y el pasado año detuvo el reloj en 28:02.

Mientras Kitwara no estuvo presente en la conferencia de prensa celebrada en un hotel de San Juan, la corredora trujillana Beverly Sue Ramos sí estuvo allí. La atleta, poseedora de la marca de la carrera entre las boricuas con tiempo de 34:40 hecha en el 2011, destacó el grado de dificultad del evento.
