BIG 25 Berlin 2012: a new World Record!

The 10478 runners at the start of three different races (25 km, Half Marathon and 10 km), were the perfect scenery for the seventh world record in the history of Germany's oldest city road race: with an astonishing time of 1:11:18, the Kenya's 28 year-old newcomer Dennis Kimetto broke into  the legendary Olympiastadion after a brilliant race. Caroline Chepkwony (Kenya), was the women's winner, with an amazing time too (1:22:56). Coming back to the ordinary people, the 10 km (my race) saw the French Adam Pardoux (winner of the 6th Berliner Airport Run) winning with a time of 00:34:25, while Susanne Hahn (German National Team) won the female race with a marathon-pace time of 00:35:12. The finishers were 1148 men and 954 women. The first 10 male results of the 10 km are listed below. For the complete results go to Keep on training, people!
