Would a marathon (and therefore the WR) be faster if it was ran on an outdoor 400m track? (assume perfect conditions)
If so, how much faster would marathons be on average (by elite East Africans), and what would the world record be?
Is the 2 hour barrier for 26.2 miles closer if it were to be ran on an indoor/outdoor 400m track? Or are roads actually quicker?
Mods, please dont delete.
No, I don't think the winner would get lapped then come back and win.
