Kibrom Gebreher in his debut performance for the Devon-Wukro Running Project won the Aksum 5k race on Sunday 9 January 2011. The race started with one lap of the stadium before heading out along the main street where there was excellent support from local residents and tourists. Participants from Wukro, Maichow, Aksum town and Aksum University took part in the strongly contested competition. Kibrom took the lead in the final kilometre of the race to finish with a convincing lead for the final 600m on the athletics track. He received a T-shirt (donated by Exmouth Harriers) and 500 birr prize money.
Several athletes from the Devon Wukro running project will compete in the regional championships in February.
