IAAF World Half Marathon Championships

The IAAF World Half Marathon Championships is an annual half marathon competition organised by the International Association of Athletics Federations. It was contested from 1992 to 2005, and replaced by the IAAF World Road Running Championships, a 20 kilometres race which had its inaugural event held in 2006. After a second edition of the Road Running Championships, which was over the half marathon distance, it reverted to the original name of the World Half Marathon Championships.

Famous quotes containing the words marathon and/or world:

    In their eyes I have seen
    the pin men of madness in marathon trim
    race round the track of the stadium pupil.

    Though beautie be the marke of praise,
    And yours of whom I sing be such
    As not the world can praise too much,
    Yet is’t your vertue now I raise.
    Ben Jonson (1572–1637)
