    They're saying that the start time is 8.15am CEST.

    This is no different than Hillary trying to summit Everest.
    I never saw the first one, but I assume he'll have a new group of guys pacing him at every 5K checkpoint, yes? Or is it every 3K?

    NBC Sports Gold says their stream starts at 1:45am Eastern time. I'll pass on that.

    Edited to fix typo.

    But what's the point of having 1500 specialists as pacers, other than perhaps raising the profile of the event?

    As of right now, NBC Gold has 11PM PDT, which is 2 AM EDT and 8 AM in Vienna.

    Interesting note: the pace is set up to hit 1:59:50, which is almost 2:50.4/kilo and 14:12 per 5K, just a tiny bit over the women's WR for 5000 meters on the track.
    Cheers,

    Those 1500m runners are pretty accomplished 5000 runners. Lagat is only doing longer races these days, Centro just ran 13:00, Chelimo, the Ingebritsons, ... None of these runners should have a problem running a 14:12 5km on essentially a straight.
