Radcliffe's 2:15 would compare to about a 28:48 10,000m for a woman, and has to be the dirtiest record on the books.

How can it be dirty if drugs don't work?
Because drugs are against the rules, and Radcliffe uses said rules to have competitors banned, in my opinion what the drug fiasco's all about. Plus it is quite strange that Radcliffe's the only woman who's bettered 2:17. Many men have bettered 2:17, but no other women. There are other ways to be dirty besides using drugs. However we know for fact that Radcliffe has used the drug rules more than any other runner, to have people banned, and to eliminate competition.
But you indicate that the reason that this record is dirty is because it is so fast, compared to the other women's distance records. There is no reason a fast record should cause anyone to suspect doping if the drugs don't work
