This is the elevation profile for the half:
Thanks for posting; I did see that. Considering they are loping along at the same pace they ran last month and they have a bit steeper of a downhill for the final mile, I would think that Llano and Chelanga will be able to “turn on the jets” a bit. Hopefully Rupp too. With the seemingly conservative start, a low 61:xx would be a nice result. To get under 61:00, they would need to cover the final 10k in 28:30ish.
Rupp has been known to practice his Marathon race tactics in tune-up races.
Yes, of course. That’s why I’m hoping they zip it in for a low 61. They were on pace for 61:5x with 10k to go, but I can’t imagine that will hold true.
