The women’s-only half marathon record dropped to 66:11 this weekend at the IAAF World Half Marathon Championships in Spain. Ethiopia’s Netsanet Gudeta defeated race favorite, Joyciline Jepkosgei (Kenya), by 43 seconds. Jepkosgei holds the mixed-gender women’s WR of 64:51 but was dropped by Gudeta around mile 8.5.
“For sure the coolest race I’ve run yet and a big honor to wear the USA in a world-class field,” Becky posted on Instagram. She’s racing the London Marathon in four weeks.
