~65:45 for Hassan. Chepngetich runs fastest women’s half today.
Hassan ran most of the race alone with two male pacers (or at leas the last third that I watched). Clearly not such a fierce battle as in Copenhagen last year because there was nobody to battle with. This might be a reason that she did not get such a fast time. I also read that the course was changed compared to former years and is not quite as flat and fast as it used to be.
