RE: Better than Ritz: Adam Campbell setting the World Record for a Marathon run in a suit
Ha ha, stoked to be in a Letsrun.com thread, thanks.
Yes, no dress shoes, I didn't want to hammer my feet too badly, but the suit was like a wet sauna by the end and was far from comfortable.
As for what an elite runner could do? Since Japanese and many African runners seem to do all their runs in track suits, I'm pretty sure they could crush my time if they wanted to.
As an FYI, it was an off the rack suit & cotton dress shirt. I left the top button on my suit & shirt done up and the tie knotted and pulled tight the whole way.
