Bali. Around 10,000 runners from 50 countries on Sunday morning tested their mettle at the Maybank Marathon 2022 in Bali Safari & Marine Park, Gianyar. 

Despite the tough terrain and long-lasting rain, participants still kept their chins up and even made it to the finish line. Many finished the marathon course before the cut-off time, but some were much faster than others.

"I'm very happy to be in Bali. Terima kasih [thank you], Bali. Terima kasih, Maybank. Terima kasih [for] the organization," Toriss told a press conference shortly after the winners announcement.

Ugandan marathon runner Immaculate Chemutai hit the finish line at 2:42:32 and became this year's Women's Marathon Open winner, marking her second win at the annual road race event. Her Maybank Marathon finish time, however, has slowed by 24 seconds from 2:42:8 in 2019.

"It was challenging today because we had competitors from all over the world. There was also the rain, as well as some obstacles where we would come across the 10K runners along the way. So it slowed down our [finish] time. All in all, Bali is good," Immaculate said. 

Rookie Rikki Marthin Luther Simbolon finished the marathon at 2:34:49, even defeating seasoned runner Agus Prayogo for first place in the Men's Marathon National category. Rikki said this was his second time running a marathon.

"I actually didn't expect to win. Because of course as runners, we were aware of our opponent's strength," Rikki told reporters.

SEA Games 2021 gold medalist Odekta Elvina Naibaho also won the women’s marathon national category by crossing the finish line at 2:55:45.

"I really appreciate the Maybank Marathon because this becomes one of my tryouts for next year's SEA Games in Cambodia," Odekta said.
