Ruth Chepngetich Set a Mind-Bending 4:53 Mile Pace to Break the Half-Marathon World Record

Kenya's Ruth Chepngetich ran her way into the history books at the N Kolay Istanbul Half Marathon on Sunday, breaking the women's half-marathon world record with a blazing-fast time of 1:04:01. We did the calculations, and that comes out to an average pace of 4:53 per mile (!) over 13.1 miles. Chepngetich sprinted right past the previous time of 1:04:31 set by Ethiopia's Ababel Yeshaneh at the 2020 RAK Half Marathon, claiming the record by a solid 29 seconds. (Chepngetich's record is still being ratified by officials.)
