Stephen Lett takes New Zealand Half Marathon title

Stephen Lett takes New Zealand Half Marathon title

Stephen Lett added the New Zealand half marathon title to the national 10km track and 10km road titles that he already holds after a convincing victory in Auckland on Sunday.

Lett eased ahead of Scott Winton at 8km and went on to record a personal best of 1h 7m 38s. Winton came in 2m 8s later with Stefan Smith third in 1h 10m 1s.

Lett said it was good to get a PB.
“We started off pretty steady, got a gap at 8km and it was good to get a PB as it is not an easy course to run a fast time,” said Lett.
