Anyone interested? I’m somewhat keen to tune in and see how it goes. He apparently should break it according to Gebrselassie (current holder) as even he said it’s not a particularly strong record.
I wonder if this will be the new challenge the longer distance runners go for, a bit like everesting, if there are no major marathons on the near horizon and now the 2hr marathon has been ticked,
Looking at Farah’s HM road pb, he really should beat it, given it’s on a track. It’ll be interesting to see if they do the whole lights circling the track indicating record pace, like they’ve done for some of the other recent WR attempts.
It’s a good question. The Diamond League page said the Diamond League youtube and facebook pages, and also the BBC, but the latter are showing the British Champs. I can’t see any holding pages on the Diamond League sites
