Callum Hawkins is running out of his mind. Looks like he could dip under 1 hour for this half in Japan.
Editor's addition. The race is over. Hawkins didn't quite break 60:00. He pulled a "Ritz" and ran 60:00. We merged 3 threads on the great race into one. The 3 titles were, "Hawkins going insane in Japan", "Hawkins runs 60:00 for half marathon", and "28.28 +28.27=60.00 Callum Hawkins!!".
Here are two recaps of the race. One from Japan Running News and one from Athletics Weekly.
