Trevor ran a strong and patient race starting conservatively and picking runners off as the race progressed.  He was 10th at 10km and didn’t move into 3rd place until the race’s last two kilometers.  He ran the fastest final 10km of any athlete in the race, with a total time of 1:40.06, less than five minutes behind the winner, Paul Kimugul who finished in 1:35.16.
