Imagine this scenario:
You take the Chicago marathon this year the elite pack continues on after the first loop for a little less than 3 more loops to finish the day as a 100 miler. The prize pool is 5 million dollars which is split between the winners.
Now people always say no one good shows up to ultras due to the lack of money. Would we start seeing 2:04 Kenyans showing up if this happened? Would Kipchoge / Rupo try?
What would the winning time be ? Would someone like Zach Bitter win this event..?
