Breaking: Nike admits that its sub-2 hr attempt won't come on a legitimate course and won't count for a WR
Sara Germano of the Wall Street Journal has an article out on Nike's Sub-2 Hr marathon attempt that will take place this spring. She spoke to someone at Nike and they admitted that the attempt will not come on a records-eligible course.

The company says that while the run won’t be world record-eligible on a sanctioned course, the attempt will “show the potential to break it and enable future times to fall.”

So there you have it. Nike admits what we've been saying all day. Humans are nowhere near running a sub-2 attempt without assistance.

Here is the article but it's behind a paywall. I think you may be able to read it for free below but if it doesn't work and you want to read it for free go to google news and type in "Germano Nike".
