Bekele eyes road running

Ethiopia's hero, Kenenisa Bekele has his eyes on road running.

The reigning double Olympic champion will compete at the Zevenheuvelenloop (Sevenhills Run) over 15 kilometres on Sunday 16 November. Though he has already participated at some road races in the past, he considers the race in the Netherlands as the ‘first serious step’ on the road.

“After I have proved myself on the track and the cross I will now take a first serious step on the road,” confirmed Bekele.
