Hiskel Tewelde (ERI) and Nancy Kiprop (KEN) win the 27th edition of the Harmonie Mutuelle Semi de Paris !

March 10th 2019

A fierce battle raged on among the elite runners on the start line of the 27th edition of the Harmonie Mutuelle Semi de Paris… but it was none other than the big favourite, Eritrea's Hiskel Tewelde, who emerged victorious with a time of 1 h 04′20″. Ethiopia's Derara Hurisa and Frenchman Florian Carvalho rounded out the podium.

 

No surprises in the women's race either, with Nancy Kiprop posting a time of 1 h 09′12″ to beat fellow Kenyan Lydia Mathati and Frenchwoman Clémence Calvin.

 

Key points:

  • 34,215 runners start the 27th edition of the Harmonie Mutuelle Semi de Paris
  • Hiskel Tewelde (ERI) wins the men's race in a time of 1 h 04′20″
  • Nancy Kiprop (KEN) claims the women's race in a time of 1 h 09′12″
  • Clémence Calvin set a new French 5K road race record of 16′25″ and went on to take the third place on the podium in a time of 1 h 10′15″
  • Frenchman Florian Carvalho came in third in a time of 1 h 05′47″
  • 38% of women in the field (44% running a half marathon for the first time)
  • 35% of the participants tackled this distance for the first time
  • 84 nationalities present, with 85% of runners from France and 74% from Île-de-France

34,215 runners went under the starting arch, set up on Quai d'Austerlitz, near the Cité de la Mode et du Design, for the first time. They had the privilege of sharing the starting areas with a host of stars, including three-time 3000 m steeplechase Olympic medallist Mahiedine Mekhissi, as well as Frenchman Florian Carvalho, who finished eighth in the 10,000 metres at the 2018 European Championships, and fellow French runner Clémence Calvin, runner-up in the marathon at the same event.

In the men's race, Eritrea's Hiskel Tewelde, second in the 2018 Semi-Marathon de Lille and 17th in the 2016 half marathon world championships, dominated the race from A to Z. Even the wind failed to stop Tewelde from breaking away from the pack after 10 kilometres.

Tewelde took the race in a time of 1 h 04′20″, beating Ethiopia's Derara Hurisa, who clawed back some time to finish in 1 h 04′48″.

 

Florian Carvalho was the fastest French runner. The 2018 French 5000 m champion caught the third-placed athlete in the final kilometre and outsprinted him to take third place in a time of 1 h 05′47″.

 

Mahiedine Mekhissi finished in fifth place despite having to cope with a side stitch for much of the race.

 

In the women's category, Kenya's Nancy Kiprop and Lydia Mathati spent the entire race locked in a high-stakes duel. The intensity of their effort soon put clear daylight between them and the rest of the elite peloton.

French runner Clémence Calvin already trailed them by 150 m after 5 km. The leaders went through the 10 km point together in 32′10″. Nancy Kiprop went through the 15 km mark in 48′33″, 20 metres ahead of Lydia Mathati.

 

40-year-old Nancy Kiprop won her first Harmonie Mutuelle Semi-Marathon de Paris in a time of 1 h 09′12″, with fellow Kenyan Lydia Mathati coming second in a time of 1 h 09′25″. French runner Clémence Calvin posted a stellar performance to finish third in a time of 1 h 10′15″.

 

Clémence Calvin set a new French 5K road race record

The runner-up in the marathon at the 2018 European Championships, Clémence Calvin, started the Harmonie Mutuelle Semi-Marathon de Paris with her sights firmly set on the Schneider Electric Marathon de Paris, which she will be racing in on 14 April to get her ticket for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Her outstanding shape also allowed her to set a new French 5K road race record of 16′25″. All in all, a wildly successful day for the 28-year-old, who finished the half marathon in third place (1 h 10′15″).

My race in video

36 510 finishers

March 4th 2018

The chilly, wet conditions failed to deter Evans Cheruiyot, who claimed the 26th edition of the Fitbit Semi de Paris ahead of fellow Kenyan Evans Kurui and Ethiopian Hailu Gizachew. Kenyan Antonina Kwambai won the women's race.

Congratulations to all of you who criss-crossed the streets and avenues to the east of the capital. Throughout the 21.1km, spurred on by the energy of East Paris, you surpassed yourself, demonstrating your amazing collective spirit. 

Key points

  • Kenya's Evans Cheruiyot takes the men's race in 1 h 01′25″
  • Antonina Kwambai's triumph in the women's race (1 h 08′06″) ensures a Kenyan double
  • Romain Courcières (1 h 05′38″) fastest among the French
  • Yohann Diniz in the thick of it

    Sunday's chilly and wet weather over the long avenues next to the Château de Vincennes made the forest the ideal starting point for a thrilling race.
  • The scorching start of Kenyans Evans Cheruiyot and Evans Kurui and Ethiopian Hailu Guizachew blew the field apart. The three contenders whittled down the small elite group at a pace that saw them go past the 10 km mark in a time of 28′40″. 2016 junior 10,000 m champion Hailu Guizachew eventually had to let go under the impulse of Evans Cheruiyot (1 h 00′59″ at the Karlovy Vary half marathon last year), followed shortly thereafter by Evans Kurui. The Kenyan sailed to victory in the Fitbit Semi de Paris with a time of 1 h 01′25″, beating fellow countryman Kurui (1 h 02′42″) and Ethiopian Gizachew (1 h 02′47″).
  • The women's race was a closer affair. Kenyans Antonina Kwambai and Pioline Wanjiku and Ethiopian Zerfia Lemeneh stayed together throughout the race despite the infernal pace. The final sprint saw Antonina Kwambai, who came second in Naples a month ago, triumph with a rock-solid time of 1 h 08′06″, 5 seconds faster than Zerfia Lemeneh (1 h 08′11″) and 13 faster than Pioline Wanjiku.
  • Romain Courcières was the fastest French runner. The athlete from Alès Cévennes finished in sixth place (1 h 05′38″), whereas Yohann Durand had to quit the race. Fadouwa Ledhem posted a time of 1 h 10′50″ to finish seventh in the women's race.

    The Fitbit Semi stole the heart of Yohann Diniz

The current 50 km walk world champion lit up the fireworks in the 1 h 35′ wave, running in the heart of a field that had to cope with the chilly Parisian winter and a drizzle that gave way to intermittent rain.

"This is the second year straight that I take part in the Fitbit Semi de Paris. This race is always fun and it has an amazing atmosphere… Everything went well, there were lots of people on the road, it was quite exhilarating. I brought people behind me, we caught quite a few runners, they were all stunned to see me walk, which I always find funny."

PODIUMS

  • Men's podium:

1. Evans CHERUIYOT (KEN) 1 h 01′25″
2. Evans KURUI (KEN) 1 h 02′42″
3. Hailu GIZACHEW (ETH) 1 h 02′47″

  • Women's podium:

1. Antonina KWAMBAI (KEN) 1 h 08′06″
2. Zerfie LEMENEH (ETH) 1 h 08′11″
3. Pioline Wanjiku (KEN) 1 h 08′19″

  • Event records:

Men: Stanley Biwott (KEN): 59′44″ (2012)

The weather forecast is cold and gloomy.   Wear waterproof clothing to protect you before the start as well as warm clothes-that you can leave at the left-luggage facility-to change into as soon as you have finished.

 

  • Starting area:

Verify the time you will set off (according to the starting area that you have been allocated) and enter your starting area at least 30 minutes before the start.

 

  • The race:

Run during the first kilometres at the pace you set yourself during your long training sessions. Make sure you spread your effort evenly throughout the race. We look forward to seeing you at the finish.

This obviously means that they must adopt a responsible attitude with regards to local residents, but also to the many people who are in charge of the cleanliness of the event, who collect the waste bins at the rear of the race and are actively involved in recycling the different materials.  

The Fitbit Semi de Paris would like to adopt an exemplary approach to waste management

Advices from Yohann Diniz for a successful race

February 23rd 2017

Yohann Diniz is a French athlete who specialises in race walking. Born on 1st January 1978 in Epernay, he is known as the triple European Champion, World silver medallist in the 50km race and world record holder for the 50km race. A Fitbit ambassador since June 2016, he is now one of the biggest names in French athletics and will be present at the Fitbit Semi de Paris on 5th March, before preparing for the 2017 World Championships in London.

Here are my top three recommendations for a successful race:

  • Make sure you warm up well with a ten-to fifteen-minute jog and a few sprints. The aim is to get your cardiovascular system ready to work. It’s also a way to get rid of stress and retreat into a bubble before you start your race.

 

  • Don’t set off too quickly at the start, even if you’re raring to go and the adrenalin is pumping. Take it easy at the start, running slightly below your race pace.

 

  • Keep up a comfortable speed for the first part of the race, so that you can accelerate over the second half. For me, this is the best way to achieve your objective.

If you are using a Fitbit bracelet or watch, like me, you have everything you need to monitor your statistics on your wrist during the race: time, distance and heart rate. You can monitor and adjust your effort in real time, which is a great advantage.

A half-marathon is broken down into three main stages: the 7th kilometre, the 14th kilometre and the finish. At the first two stages a certain level of euphoria can set in because you can feel strong and want to accelerate. But keep this energy and the desire to move mountains reined in if you want to last beyond the 16th kilometre. This is the point where your mental strength takes over, enabling you to push beyond your limits and finish the course strongly and comfortably. The key word here is FRESHNESS: by saving your energy while following your own pace, you are most likely to finish within your target time and feeling good!

Discover the route!

February 7th 2017

The new route has finally been revealed to you! We promise you’ll be running along and through the most mythical and symbolic places in East Paris: Quai d'Austerlitz, Bastille, Hôtel de Ville, Bercy, the Bois de Vincennes, etc. The new feature this year is that you’ll be able to cross the Pont de Bercy and the Pont de Sully, which will offer you an incredible view of the banks of the Seine, to cover the good 2 kilometres on the left bank! What a great opportunity!

Raise your eyes and enjoy the route!

37,108 finishers!

March 6th 2016

Once again you proved that running was a convivial sport, whether you were on your own or with friends. There had undoubtedly never been a warmer atmosphere in both the start and the finish area of the Fitbit Semi de Paris, with a historical number of women in the heart of the pack. And now it’s time to recover: you have really deserved it! 

36% of women among the entrants 

There had never been as many women at the start of the capital's half-marathon. Representing 36% of entrants (+2% versus 2015). Christelle Daunay, the current European marathon champion, commented on this figure with a smile: “I am thrilled. Women must continue competing and enjoy themselves while running.” 

1:09:58 for Christelle Daunay 

Christelle Daunay, who is the French record holder on the half-marathon distance (1:08:34), started her season on the Fitbit Semi de Paris. Already qualified for the Rio Olympics, she covered the 21.1km in 1:09:58. “I gave it my all and that's what counts," she said several seconds after crossing the finish line. 

Gebreselassie put on a show 

Were you lucky enough to cross Gebre? Haile Gebreselassie, the two-time Olympic 10,000m champion and former marathon world record holder (2:03:59), gave the starting signal of the Fitbit Semi de Paris. He was also present in the Village as well as at the finish line. The Ethiopian champion, who has now retired, was incredibly patient and readily allowed hundreds of competitors to take selfies with him all weekend long.
