Half Marathon Best Performances/Records

The half marathon is an event that has grown in popularity over the last 20 years. Unlike the full marathon, it has never been contested at the Olympics or IAAF World Championships but since 1992 it has had its own separate championship.

It has only been a part of the World Masters Athletics Champs since 2013.

World Masters do not, as yet, maintain official world records for this event. New Zealand Masters do maintain records, however athletes remembering to apply for records is a somewhat patchy affair, particularly given the Centres have not adopted the distance for record maintenance.

Where Centre records are better performances than National or World records, this likely indicates that the athlete either failed to apply for the record within the application window or was unable to meet the stricter paperwork requirements. More recent records could still be in the processing stage at World or National level.

Note: Athletes move. Wellington records applicable to athletes registered to Wellington at time of performance. Island championship records applicable to athletes registered to that island at time of performance. NZ records applicable to athletes registered appropriately to NZMA at time of performance. Oceania championship records applicable to athletes registered to OMA at time of performance. World records quote national affiliation of athlete at time of performance.
