I like the idea of a challenging course but the question I would like to know is it similar to what the Olympic course is like? The hills and the turns to me mean that the super smooth efficient runner may find this course too tough. The strength based runners will have an advantage. I would imagine everyone has prepared but I do think that there will be some surprises on this course.[/quote]
I’m curious about the Olympic course profile as well. This course is definitely going to even out the playing field and minimize the advantage of the fastest, most efficient runners. Walmsley, for example, will benefit heavily on a course like this vs. a Bonneville Salt Flats course against guys like Rupp.
