6-Year-Old Sets Half-Marathon World Record



Keelan Glass, a 3-foot-5, 35-pound first grader, completed the Showdown Half Marathon in Fairview. The 6-year-old raised nearly $3,000 for the Pregnancy Resource Center in Abilene. Keelan Glass ran 13.1 miles in 2 hours, 47 minutes and 30 seconds at the Showdown Half Marathon in Fairview, Texas, at a 12.47-mile pace. That was fast enough to set a national age-group record according to the Association of Road Racing Statisticians. Glass finished fifth out of 10 in the 14-and-under age group, though she was the only racer younger than 12 running.
