Who is the rabbit tasked with running 11:20? I imagine that it would be difficult to find someone able to hit that pace reliably and evenly willing to rabbit rather than race for more pay somewhere.
Rabbits get paid. Where else are they going to run and get paid more? What other races are happening today? Or next week for that matter?
I agree finding someone who can run 11:20 through 4k is difficult. More difficult than finding a man to pace 10:15.
