Tariku Jufar Biography

Tariku Jufar is a famous Marathon Runner, who was born on July 18, 1984 in Ethiopia. Tariku Jufar (born 18 July 1984) is an Ethiopian long-distance runner who competes in marathon races. He has won the Beijing, Beirut and Houston Marathons and has had top-three finishes in Istanbul, Mumbai, Los Angeles, Lake Biwa and Hamburg. His personal best for the distance is 2:06:51 hours (set in 2012). According to Astrologers, Tariku Jufar's zodiac sign is Cancer.

Tariku Jufar led for the early stages of the Mumbai Marathon in January 2008 and held on to take second place behind Kenya’s John Kelai. A career best time of 2:08:10 hours came at the Hamburg Marathon three months later (where he was third) The Toronto Waterfront Marathon was promoted as a rematch between him and Kelai, but both had sub-standard races – the Ethiopian was 13th and his time of 2:18:47 hours was by far the slowest of his professional career. His performance at December’s Singapore Marathon was even slower, as he came tenth in 2:19:20 hours.

In addition to marathon running, he also represented his country at the IAAF World Half Marathon Championships in 2003 and 2007.

While training in Addis Ababa in 2009 he was hit by a car and the resulting injuries left him unable to compete for nine months. His sole marathon of 2009, the Los Angeles Marathon, saw him return to form and he completed the distance in 2:09:32 hours (his second sub-2:10 hour run) to take the runner-up spot behind Wesley Korir. Tariku had mixed results in the 2010 season: he returned to Los Angeles and came seventh in a time of 2:11:49 hours, but was some six minutes slower at the Florence Marathon, where he came fifth.
