Reigning World Cross Country champion Zersenay Tadese of Eritrea and former 5000m World champion Eliud Kipchoge of Kenya will be the headliners of the 76th edition of the Cinque Mulini IAAF Cross Country Permit race in San Vittore Olona on Sunday 3 February 2008.
San Vittore Olona will feature the second clash of 2008 between Tadese and Kipchoge who finished respectively second and third closely beaten by Ethiopian Kenenisa Bekele at the Holyrood Park in Edinburgh on 12 January in the same venue which will play host to the IAAF World Cross Country Championships on 30 March.
Tadese, the first athlete from Eritrea to win an Olympic medal when he finished third in Athens in the 10,000 metres, celebrated a fantastic 2007 season when he won two World titles in the cross country in Mombasa and in the half marathon over a superfast course in Udine.
