Not sure what the point of two separate groups so close together. Makes you think Kipchoge doesn't want to run with anyone else.
Kipchoge set up this pace (61 minutes at the half) and Kipsang decided it was a bit too fast so he set up another pace going through the half 30 seconds slower.
This has been talked about on this website in detail for the past couple days.
I know, but what they say beforehand isn't always what happens on race day. Last year they planned the same thing but then decided to run as one group.
