RE: Will Rupp finally take the white-guy 5k record from .Dieter Baumann at The Pre Clasic?
^ good points, i should have said non-african descent record

Some good runners will be in the mix:
Men’s 5000 Meters Personal Best
Isiah Kiplangat Koech (Kenya) 12:48.64
Yenew Alamirew (Ethiopia) 12:48.77
Edwin Cheruiyot Soi (Kenya) 12:51.34
Albert Rop (Bahrain) 12:51.96
Bernard Lagat (USA) 12:53.60
Galen Rupp (USA) 12:58.90
Lawi Lalang (Kenya) 13:00.95
Collis Birmingham (Australia) 13:09.57

... And it wasn't Farah was in shape to run 12:54 at this race a few years ago, so I think there's a chance (rupp has bettered farah's 10k... And I think rupp could match Farah's 'racing' pr with a time-trial attempt). But i haven't seen any news about pace setters for this race though
