2012 World Half Marathon Championships – 27 Images

I was in Kavarna, Bulgaria to cover yesterday’s IAAF World Half Marathon Championships – below is a gallery of 27 shots of some of the world’s finest distance runners.

Zersenay Tadese of Eritrea dominated the men’s race, clocking 1:01:19 to win by 32 seconds and to take the title for the fifth time. The women’s race was won by Ethiopian Meseret Hailu in 1:08:55. Complete results are here and my reports are here (men) and here (women’s).
