Stephen Sambu and Betsy Saina won the Morrison’s Great Manchester Run on Sunday, but the bigger news was Bernard Lagat running 27:48 in his 10k debut to set another master’s world record and the retirement of one of the greatest, if not the greatest, distance runners ever Haile Gebrselassie.

The previous master’s world record was 28:00.0, set by Gebrselassie in this race two years ago. (The American masters record was 29:37 held by University of Minnesota coach Steve Plasencia).

Update: David Monti of Race Results Weekly points out Bernard Lagat also tied Mark Nenow’s American record of 27:48. Amazing that a 40 year old is as fast as anyone ever in the US on the roads.

Discuss: Lagat just ran 27.50
