    When he gets to 8K (5M), there'll be a new group of runners.

    Just the opposite, actually. This is live on Eurosport. The DL is only shown on premium channels.

    To the 2 party-poopers: Just think of this as an extreme training run. Rare though it may be, and quite likely once in a very blue moon, some people do run faster in a training run like this, than their PR in an official race.

    I didn't realise that as in the UK it is on the standard Eurosport 1 or 2.

    The BBC are also showing the 1:59 live via their website in the UK.

    When does the pacing stop? I haven't been listening to all the details, but I suppose he runs the last 2.195K alone.

    2:05:48 by Sondre Norstad Moen in 2017. It was even the European record for a little while.

    21.4K/h or 13.3mph.

    Only things that could ruin this are rain and a cramp; and if he fails, I want Kenenisa Bekele to try in March.
