Berhane Adere of Ethiopia added to RnR Seattle half-marathon field...

Veteran internationalist Berhane Adere (left/courtesy London Marathon) of Ethiopia has been added to Saturday's Rock n Roll Seattle Half-Marathon, joining seven-time world cross country champion Paul Tergat of Kenya in the field.

The 35-year old Adere has won the Chicago Marathon twice as well as the prestigious Dubai Marathon. She is a former world champion in the 10,000 meters, and her personal-best time in the half-marathon is 1 hour, 8 minutes, 17 seconds.

Race promoters have 25000 entries for both the half-marathon and marathon, which starts in Tukwila, and finishes at Qwest Field.

Here's the link to the Seattle Times article on Adere's entry.
