The 2011 season marked a high as he won the Prague Marathon in 2:07:07 hours (more than a minute faster than he had run before). He ran at the Virginia Beach Half Marathon as preparation for the Beijing Marathon in September. He won over the shorter distance in a time of 1:02:22 hours and placed top three in the Chinese marathon. The 2012 Daegu Marathon saw him run one of his fastest marathon times in his career and his mark of 2:08:36 hours was enough for third. He made only two more outings that year: he won the Porto Half Marathon, then came fourth at the Gyeongju International Marathon.


He paced the field in course record time at the 2009 Brescia Marathon, going on to win the Turin Marathon in rainy conditions. He retained his title at the Udine Half Marathon in September and at the Beijing Marathon he yet again dipped under 2:09, coming third behind Samuel Mugo and Nicholas Manza. He was among the favourites for the 2010 Rome Marathon and came second behind Siraj Gena. Attempting a third straight win, he entered the Udine Half Marathon, but he had to settle for the runner-up spot behind William Chebor. He headed to Korea for October's Chuncheon Marathon and he had his third second place finish of the year, finishing behind Benjamin Kiptoo Kolum.


He took back-to-back wins over the half marathon in February the next year, taking the title at the Eldoret Half Marathon in Kenya and then the Roma-Ostia Half Marathon. He made his second outing over the full distance at the JoongAng Seoul Marathon in November and recorded another sub-2:10 time, being edged into fourth place by Ethiopian Yerefu Berhanu. In 2008 he served as the pacemaker for the Rome City Marathon, a run which was his preparation for the Paris Marathon the month after, where his time of 2:09:23 brought him ninth in a high quality field. He completed his first half marathon under an hour to win the Udine race and his course record of 59:41 minutes ranked him as the eleventh fastest runner that year. His next marathon came in Frankfurt and he remained consistent in his time, recording 2:08:57 for fifth in a Kenyan sweep of the top fourteen.


He won in a course record time of 1:01:14 at the 2005 Nice Half Marathon. After taking pacemaking duties at the City-Pier-City Loop, He set bests at the Berlin Half Marathon (fourth in 60:57 min) and the Rotterdam Half Marathon (fourth in 60:17 min). A month after his race in Rotterdam, he made his marathon debut at the Milano City Marathon and established himself as a top competitor in the event, taking the runner-up spot behind Benson Kipchumba Cherono in a time of 2:08:33 hours. It was the fastest marathon race in the country that year.

A 10K best of 27:52 minutes came at a race in Gualtieri in April 2003 and this proved to be one of the fastest runs by any athlete in the world that year.
