A half marathon is a road running event of 21.0975 km (13.109 mi, or 13 mi 192½ yd)—half the distance of a marathon. [1] It is common for a half marathon event to be held concurrently with a marathon or a 5K race, using almost the same course with a late start, an early finish or shortcuts[ citation needed ]. If finisher medals are awarded, the medal or ribbon may differ from those for the full marathon. The half marathon is also known as a 21K, 21.1K or 13.1 miles, although these values are rounded and not formally correct.[ examples needed ]

A half marathon world record is officially recognised by the International Association of Athletics Federations. [2] [3] The official IAAF world record for men is 57:32, set by Kibiwott Kandie of Kenya in December 2020 in Valencia, Spain, [4] and for women is 1:04:51, set by Joyciline Jepkosgei of Kenya on October 22, 2017, in Valencia, Spain. [5] Participation in half marathons has grown steadily since 2003, [6] partly because it is a challenging distance, but does not require the same level of training that a marathon does. [6] In 2008, Running USA reported that the half marathon is the fastest-growing type of race. [6]

Notes

  1. Yego is omitted from some lists because the distance between the start and the finish on the course that he ran was 82% of the race distance, which is greater than the 50% allowed for some records. [14]
  2. Published in IAAF documents, including IAAF top lists Archived 2009-02-16 at the Wayback Machine . The ARRS has suggested that the Stramilano half marathon course might have been short in 1993 and lists the best time for 1993 as 1:00:15 by Moses Tanui from Kenya.

Half marathon world record progression

A total of five men's world records and six women's world records have been officially ratified since that date. The IAAF officially recognised the fastest times prior to that date as a "world best" from 1 January 2003 onwards. Before that date, the IAAF did not recognise any road running world records, though the concept of a world record was recognised by other organisations, such as the Association of Road Racing Statisticians (ARRS).

10-mile run

The 10-mile run is a long-distance road running event over a distance of ten miles (16.1 kilometres). Also referred to as a 10-miler or 10 miles run, it is a relatively common distance in countries that use the mile as a unit of reference. It is roughly an intermediate distance between the 10K run and the half marathon (21.1 km). The level of endurance required to run the distance means it attracts more seasoned runners than shorter events do and usually requires a period of preparation for first-time attempts.

The 20K run is a long distance foot race. It is a rarely held race that is not recognized as an Olympic event. The event held IAAF world championship status in 2006 only, when the existing IAAF World Half Marathon Championships briefly hosted the shorter distance.
