IAAF.org: Tadesse runs 59:05 Half Marathon at Great North Run

2005-09-18

Eritrea's Olympic 10,000m bronze medallist Zersenay Tadesse won last morning’s 25th anniversary running of the BUPA Great North Run in a time of 59:05.

The time is the fastest ever run for the distance improving by one second the run of Paul Tergat in Lisbon, Portugal (26 March 2000) but will not be considered for World record purposes as the course from Newcastle to South Shields is slightly downhill (30.5m), as was the Lisbon route (69m). The current World record, subject to ratification, is the 59:16 performance that 18-year-old Samuel Wanjiru of Kenya set a week ago in Rotterdam, a time which bettered by one second another Tergat performance in Milan, Italy (4 April 1998).
