Nike Sub-2 Hour Marathon Attempt Will Be Broadcast Live This Friday

If you're interested in watching the Nike Sub-2 Hour Marathon Attempt at the Formula 1 track in Monza, Italy, this Friday, it will be streamed live at Nike's Facebook pageRunners World, and at 11:45 p.m. Eastern/8:45 p.m. Pacific. There is likely going to be some pre-race build up, so log in early if you want to check it out.

Eliud Kipchoge, Zersenay Tadese and Lelisa Desisa cruising along at a 4:34 min/mile pace in the strangest (and possibly illegal) shoes ever....even if it fails, gotta say, it's some wicked good PR. ;-)


  1. Ain't no way this happens – unless it does! :) What the sport doesn't need is a 2:01:23 marathon in a manufactured setting like this. That said, I can't wait for the fun to start. If your readers are interested Scott, we've broken down why Nike's sub-2 experiment may and may not succeed over on RaceRaves:

  2. I believe the attempt will be this Saturday.

    1. Saturday morning in Italy, so Friday evening here in the States. 😇
