The TCS World 10K Bengaluru 2018, one of the world’s most prestigious races over the distance in the world, will be available to watch online anywhere in the world on Sunday (27 May) via the event website https://tcsworld10k.
The stream is not geo-blocked. In India, the race will also be televised live on Star Sports 2, Star Sports 2 HD and streamed live on the hotstar website www.
The stream will be available from 0700-1000 Indian Standard Time (0130-0430 GMT). The women’s elite race starts at 0800 IST (0230 GMT) and the men’s race at 0850 IST (0320 GMT).
The men’s race includes reigning world half marathon champion Geoffrey Kamworor and defending TCS World 10K champion Alex Korio, both from Kenya, as well as Ethiopia’s Mosinet Geremew.
All three men have won twice in in Bengaluru in the past and the trio each have ambitions of becoming the first runner to get a hat-trick of victories in the Indian city.
Bahrain’s Abraham Cheroben, the Asian half marathon record holder and the silver medallist behind Kamworor at the IAAF World Half Marathon Championships Valencia 2018 in March, should also be in contention for honours.
Ethiopia’s Netsanet Gudeta, who also won at the IAAF World Half Marathon Championships Valencia 2018, heads a strong women’s field that contains the 2015 world cross country champion Agnes Tirop, from Kenya, and her compatriots Pauline Kamulu and Caroline Kipkirui.
Kamulu was third in Valencia while Kipkirui leads the world over 3000m on the track after her impressive win at the IAAF Diamond League meeting in Doha earlier this month.
Elite runners from all six continental associations have travelled to Bengaluru for the IAAF Gold Label Road Race (see the event website for further details of the elite fields).
Approximately 27,000 runners will take to the roads for five different races. In addition to the TCS World 10K for elite runners, there is an Open 10K, the Majja Run (6km) the Senior Citizens’ Race and Champions with Disability Race (both 4km).
