Uganda Long-distance runner Jacob Kiplimo has set off for the Sevens Hills Race in Nijmegen, Netherlands slated for Sunday.

Kiplimo will compete with athletes including long-distance rising star athlete Rogers Kwemoi who confirmed his entrance a few days ago, Ethiopia’s Selemon Barega and Yomiv Kajalcha, and Ronald Kwemoi from Kenya among other athletes.

Following his participation in the Atapuerca Cross Country Championships in Spain where he won early this month, Kiplimo has been training in Kapchorwa under the guidance of his Ugandan Coach, Peter Chelangat.

Kiplimo said that the preparation he underwent has seen his fitness level improve, and is now able to showcase his potential in the 15-kilometer race amidst expected formidable competition from other World Class Athletes. “I feel I am ready to do something for my country during this race”. Stated Kiplimo.

Chelangat believes that the preparation was positive and a great result is a possibility.

This will be the second race for Kiplimo since he recovered from the hamstring injury he encountered while preparing for the Budapest Championships in August.
