RE: Breaking: Nike admits that its sub-2 hr attempt won't come on a legitimate course and won't count for a WR
If you are going to do it on an illegitimate course, why stop there? Steroids and EPO won't invalidate a non-world record attempt either.

Hell Robert Young / Mike Rossi might have a shot at it if they could drive 25 miles in about 1:53. They might be able to run the final 1.2 in sub 7.

Does anyone besides me think it's ironic that in their press release they marketed by mention that Bill Bowerman, Nike’s co-founder and legendary track coach, once said, “The real purpose of running isn't to win a race, it’s to test the limits of the human heart."

How is doing it on a gimmicky course testing the limits of anything? We already know a human can easily travel 26.2 miles in under 2 hours. It's not hard at all on a bike, roller skates, etc.
