2016 Wharf to Wharf: Mwangi wins sprint to finish over 2011 champ Kipruto

Published Sunday July 24

Capitola >> If event organizers are ever in need of a way to add excitement to the annual Wharf to Wharf Race, Sunday’s 44th edition provided the blueprint.

Simply turn the six-mile footrace from Santa Cruz to Capitola into a 100-meter dash down Cliff Drive.

“That finish was fantastic” director Scott McConville said.

Isaac Mukundi Mwangi made sure of it. The Kenyan-born runner — who was in 2nd place with one hundred meters to go — used the deep downhill finish into Capitola to slingshot past fellow countryman and 2011 champion Silas Kipruto and narrowly win in 27 mins. 30.27 seconds.

Kipruto commented he plans to race alongside Mwangi the next time.
