During the race at Eldoret Sports Club Masai, seventh in last years junior mens race at the world cross country championship in France displayed his maturity amid the tension created by serious contenders: Robert Cheruiyot (also a past Boston Marathon winner), Richard Limo and the reigning Nairobi marathon champion Samson Barmao in the initial stages of the race.

Jepletting clocked 28:49.1 ahead of Edna Kiplagat who was timed at 29:01.3. The junior mens 8 km event saw the emergence of another runner from Turkana district, Joseph Ebuya, winning in 25:34.3.
