Kipsiro pipped 2006 winner Barnabas Cosgei of Kenya in a thrilling finish.

England's Mike Skinner ran a fine race to get fourth while local St Malachy's man Gary Murray took seventh.

England's Hayley Yelling won the women's elite race with Scotland's Cathy Butler second and Mary Marageret Meade the best Irish runner in 13th.
