World record, Melbourne Half

2024 Race Reports

On February 11, 2024, Rice improved her own 75-79 world record in the Melbourne FL Half Marathon. She finished in 1:40:42 on a warm day and a course that crossed several bridges (hills).

That bettered the 1:41:53 she had recorded two months earlier in the Jacksonville FL Half Marathon. She also ran a 1:41:55 in January at the Naples FL Half Marathon.

"I'm still hoping to get under 1:40," she said.
