I would expect West to pace this one. But only one rabbit? If they're going for a sub-13, I doubt he'll make it past 2,400m. Perhaps they just want the world standard, in which case their rabbit can make it a bit further.
I'm a Hocker and Teare fan, but what is up with these unpublicized (and yes I'm aware I just made up that word), private time trials? Nobody had any idea this was happening until you posted this thread. We still don't know what the goal is here. I don't mind time trials, but I would like to know about them without having to either dig into the entries of a small outdoor meet, or trawl through the boards of LetsRun.
I know people don't like this, but I wish they would hype up their races/TTs a bit more. It would be #Goodforthesport.
Also, it would be nice to see Lawi run well again, though I doubt it'll happen.
In all, I'm happy this is happening, but kind of confused about the whole situation.
