Running is gaining popularity across the world. And Half marathon has become quite a big event in many countries taking place every year. So what is Half Marathon?

This distance is actually half the Marathon and is run on road instead of a race track. One who participates in half marathon does require good fitness and some preparation before the event day, but it surely nowhere near the hard work and preparation that goes into running a marathon.
