The organisers alongside with Hermens&Sang agreed that a final decision will be taken tomorrow morning. They are debating either 61:00 or 61:30. Anyways it seems way too fast for the weather forecasted!
LRC update: The official paces were posted by Mo Farahon an instagram story https://www.letsrun.com/wp-cont....06.15.png . Ideal pace would be slower in our book on men's side even despite downhill in first 3 miles.
Update from Rojo. I am turning this into the official thread.
Women's race is at 4:15 am ET. Men's is at 5:00 am ET.

I'll probably be joining you all at the halfway point so let me make my prediction. Have we not learned anything from Boston 2011 or Boston 2018 (or sub-2)? The weather matters A LOT. There is NO CHANCE for a WR due to the heat. Mid 60s isn't warm for non-runners but it's too warm for a marathon WR. Let's hope we see some epic clashes though as Bekele vs Kipchoge and Dibaba vs Keitany are two great clashes.
PS. I'm merging this thread with the pacing thread. THe pace is way too hot given the weather.
