Weldon Langat and Immaculate Anyango are the winners of the Discovery Cross Country competition after winning the men's and women's competitions at the Eldoret Sports Club, Eldoret, on Sunday.

Bravin Kiprop (30:38.1), a local athlete from Iten, Elgeyo Marakwet County, and 10-kilometer record holder Rhonex Kipruto were beaten by Lang'at, who trains there, in the men's race (30:38.1).

The underdog Anyango, who trains in Iten, had a magnificent race to beat the favorites in the women's race, winning in 27:49.4. Catherine Reline and Christine Njoki came in second and third, respectively, with times of 28:02.3 and 28:02.3, respectively.

The young Njoki, who had been in the lead for much the whole race, was let down by a misfortune fall in the final lap, which allowed Anyango and Reline to close the gap and pass her.

Kevin Kiprop (25:05.5) won the 8km Under-20 men's title, while Maurine Jepkoech from Nandi County took the 6km Under-20 women's crown in 21:19.0.

The Great Rift Cross Country was the original name of Discovery Cross Country, which debuted in 1992.
