A new National record for Hussein Awada in the BLOM Beyrouth Marathon!
On 7 November 2010, more than 30,000 runners were attending the BLOM Beyrouth Marathon 2010. Some youngsters were running 1km with their mom's, others the 3km that was divided in 4 categories (9-11/12-13/14-15/16-17); others were running 10km for fun, while the rest were doing their first, or not, 42.195km running, on Wheelchairs, Hand Cycle, Push-rim or the Marathon Relay!
In the Marathon 42.195km, the strong Ethiopians were near the Kenyans, while behind them was Hussein Awada from Lebanon, who were running for the Army Team and for his country.
