Kenya’s Florence Kiplagat will target her own world record at the eDreams Barcelona Half Marathon when she lines up for the IAAF Silver Label Road Race on February 12.

The 29-year old has twice broken the world record at the event, clocking 1:05:12 in 2014 and then taking three seconds off that mark in 2015. She added a third consecutive victory in 2016, running a season’s best of 1:09:19.

Kiplagat went on to finish third at this year’s London Marathon before winning the Chicago Marathon in a season’s best of 2:21:32.
