About the Memorial Agness Tirop World Cross Country Tour

The Memorial Agnes Tirop World Cross Country Tour is a World Athletics meet named in honor of the slain world cross country champion, Agnes Tirop. The great Cross Country athlete had long been one of the biggest talents in distance running and an inspiration to many upcoming athletes. She won the senior World Cross Country title in 2015 at just the age of 19, then flourished on both track and road in the years that followed. She was a 2-time World Championships Bronze medalist, 1 time World Cross Country Championships Gold medalist, 1 time World Cross Country Championships Silver medalist, 1-time Olympic Games finalist, and the world-record holder in the 10 kilometers women’s only event.
