your money will go down the toilet! He is a 2:10 marathoner, because he is aerobically weak. Plus he is 35, so he is not going to become a great marathoner when has been a weak marathoner for most of his life. He is a specialist at half marathon, and half marathon only. He probably would have been the greatest 10000m runner on track, but he ran during the era of Bekele.

I would wager on Zersenay Tadese. The fastest half marathon credential is impressive. 10/1 odds for a guy that has a decent chance is too good to pass by.
15/2 odds for Galen also seems too good to not bet on him.
He ran 2:06 in a race that was designed from him to break 2:00. Your top elite african marathoners can run 2:06 in their sleep.
He may push a 62:00 min marathon pace, but death will become him after the 13th mile.
