The UAE Healthy Kidney 10k has had five years of great, competitive racing, with
Craig Mottram, Dathan Ritzenhein in past years. The sixth annual featured a tough field,
including Gebre Gebremariam. Gebremariam, 2009 World Cross Country champ, ran the fastest 10k ever in Central Park, on Saturday, May 15, 2010. 27:42 for 10k! Gebre ran aggressively over the hilly course, and his 27:42 gave him a $20,000 bonus for the course record! Photos courtesy of PhotoRun.net, special thanks to RN Webmaster for the photo
