RE: Go figure: US women's top 10 average marathon times for 2018 trails North Korea

this article really does make quite depressing reading. only 2 British women under 2:48 and he doesn't even mention British men. so far this year only three British men have gone under 2:20 and only one of those (Mo Farah) has met the A-standard for the European Championships marathon, which is 2:16.00. Callum Hawkins was, admittedly, on target for a good time in the Commonwealth Games before he succumbed to the heat, and Dewi Griffiths went under 2:10 last year but this really is a fallow time for British distance running. Berlin is September 16th and Frankfurt 28th October.

cheers.


18 women have broken 2:48 this year, only 2 have broken 2:36
