Real Madrid legend Raul takes part in New York half-marathon

Real Madrid legend Raul has participated in the New York half-marathon.

Marca reports Raul, sporting a blue top with the bib number 1848, completed the 21.1 kilometres in a time of 2:06.03, which means he took an average of six minutes per kilometre.

He was accompanied by his wife, Mamen Sanz, who actually crossed the finish line in Lower Manhattan two seconds ahead of her husband.

Unsurprisingly, the couple were some distance behind the winners, Kenya's Stephen Sambu on the men's side (1:01.16) and the New Yorker Molly Huddle (1:07.37) in the women's race.
