In the senior women’s event, Chebet led a group of five Kenyan runners that emerged as frontrunners halfway through the 10km race. This group gradually dwindled to three contenders as Chebet, Lilian Rengeruk, and Margaret Kipkemboi surged ahead towards the end. Maintaining their pace, the trio stuck together until Chebet made a decisive move in the final stretch, accelerating and creating a slight gap before crossing the finish line in 31:05.

In the men’s individual race, Kiplimo demonstrated his dominance by taking command in the final lap with a remarkable burst of speed, breaking away from the leading pack. He ultimately clinched a comfortable victory, completing the 10km event in 28:09, and easing off in the last few meters. Berihu Aregawi of Ethiopia, who finished fourth behind Kiplimo in the Tokyo 10,000m final, once again closely trailed the Ugandan, crossing the finish line just three seconds later.
