Fastest Half Marathons by Indiana HS Grads?

Postby Neuman » Wed Nov 28, 2012 6:54 am

I'm pretty sure I know what the fastest time is for women (see below), but not sure about men...any help? I've tried to find a list of US all-time performances, but the deepest I could find were the top 10 lists on the T&FN website and none were Indiana HS grads.

62:20 - Fasil Bizuneh - Ben Davis '98 - New Balance - USATF Half Marathon Championships, TX '07

70:09 - Amy Yoder Begley - East Noble '96 - Nike - IAAF World Half Marathon Championships, GBR '09

I don't have complete lists at hand, but a quick look at all-athletics.com's list, which goes to 1:02:00, and Association of Road Racing Statisticians' list (arrs.net), which goes to 1:02:16 shows no Indiana-born/HS athletes that I can identify on either. So, Bizuneh's is probably the fastest.

(Ditto for Yoder-Begley -- I don't think any faster than her were/are from Indiana high school backgrounds.)

ps. re Bob Kennedy -- no 1/2 marathons listed on any of his profiles; and in any case, he graduated from HS in Ohio. :)

Don't know if Rudy Chapa ever ran a half, but he does have a 2:11:13 marathon to his credit.

Kennedy graduated from a HS in Ohio, not Indiana.

Yes, I already have Chapa listed for that performance on the Indiana HS Alumni records I maintain at http://indianarunner.informe.com/forum/ ... t7317.html. I don't think he ever ran just a half marathon.

Thanks for the ARRS link! Stan Mavis (1:02:16, a former AR, but now only 50th on the list) is a graduate of Greensburg HS in Indiana, so that gives him the alumni best instead of Bizuneh:

1:02:16 - Stan Mavis - Greensburg '73 - Frank Shorter RT - Natural Light Half Marathon, LA '80

Of course he did! And then he did it again, without stopping! :evil:

Yes, but he only had a couple of 1:05s, not really all that great a time. :mrgreen:
