what is the longest race you have legitimately seen run by a person in a speed suit?
i have definately seen sprint medleys being anchored by 800 dudes in speed suits. i believe i once saw a 5k run at hs indoor nsic in a speed suit as well.
No, I don't think anyone has
Umm ever heard of Bolota Asmerom?
I have this theory where speed suits have the opposite effect because they restrict movement in your joints, so you need to put out more energy to run fast because of this. (Try running anything fast in long tights, it's tough). But I think it may only be true for tights that extend past your knees.

I can't say that I've ever worn a speedsuit in a race, but the more I think about it, the less I can see any reason not to. Isn't the only difference between a speedsuit and flappy shorts and a singlet the amount of wind resistance you will generate? Why doesn't everyone wear these? You'll just have a little bit of extra energy at the end, right?
