6-Year Old Runs a Half Marathon in under 3 Hours

Keelan Glass of Abilene, Texas is just 6 years old, but she can probably outrun most of us. She completed a half marathon—that’s 13.1 miles—in 2 hours, 47 minutes and 30 seconds. It’s a world record.

At least, it’s a record as far as officials could determine. There’s no record of anyone under the age of nine and a half running a timed half marathon.

Keelan’s parents are both triathletes and she used to ride with them in her stroller as they trained. She got bored, so they let her run. She was running 5 kilometer races by the age of 4 and 10 kilometer races by the age of 5.
