Half Marathon World Record Holders. Half marathon records have broken by the people listed below. These runners are very successful and have conquered about 13.1 miles in record-breaking time. Even though half marathon is half the distance of a marathon, these people should still be recognized. Many of them probably went on anyway to run in the marathon. As for the rest of us, we'll just keep trekking along hoping that our hip hop running songs can keep us inspired.
