Did you know running facts – Part 3
In a world where constant innovation breeds some of the fastest athletes in the world, it is inevitable that new milestones will be reached in the world of elite running.
On Saturday 1 April, Joyciline Jepkosgei of Kenya achieved an astonishing women’s half marathon world record time of 1.04.52 in the Prague Half Marathon. Not only was this a world record, but the Kenyan broke three other world records along the way, including 10km, 15km and 20km times.
To put this in perspective, her winning time was faster than the Gold Coast Half Marathon men’s winning time in 2014. Girl power!
Stay healthy, keep active and have a happy run!

After a few weeks of regular running, suddenly they find it no longer hurts to run and the absence of pain lets them know their running has moved to a new level.
