Mbeya. Tanzanian athletes’ hopes to win top honours in the 2018 Mbeya Tulia Marathon went up in thin smoke as Kenyans stole the show here today.

In the gruelling men’s 42km race, Kenyan Abraham Too won top honour, while his compatriot Benard Musau claimed gold in the men’s half marathon.
The second position in the women’s marathon went to Tanzanian Sarah Ramadhan who clocked three hours, 20 minutes and 53 seconds.
