The elite field entered into this Sunday’s Vattenfall Berlin Half Marathon (1 April) is the best ever. The 27th edition of Germany’s biggest, top quality race of this kind will see five men with personal bests of sub-61 minutes.
Additionally the women’s race should provide a great duel between the defending champion Edith Masai (Kenya) and Benita Johnson (Australia).
Taking into account that last year’s race had been the best one in the history of the event expectations can be high for Sunday. In 2006 both course records were broken with Paul Kosgei (Kenya) clocking 59:07 minutes and Edith Masai finishing in 67:16, which remained the fastest time of the year.
