Bernard Lagat runs AR Masters for Half Marathon of 1:02:00 at Aramco Houston Half!


Bernard Lagat has started off the year 2018 with a new American masters record. Lagat ran 1:02:00 for the new AR. A great time for Bernard, but obvious this man can run faster. Could the Masters WR of Haile Gebrselassie be in jeapordy (1:01:19)?

Bernard retired from elite track & field on September 3, 2016, with a 3000 meters at ISTAF Berlin. Lagat spent much time each year training in Germany, and he decided that it would be a fitting way to end his athletics career.

Bernard Lagat went out fast and furious and his 1:02:00 was impressive, a 32 second improvement on his PB. Looks to me like one of our favorites can run under the World Masters record of 1:01:19!

Congrats Bernard, you make us proud!
