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 running the course on a non-records eligible course, then you are receiving assistance - either by wind, elevation drop , etc.


There are degrees of assistance. You should read the quote of the day on the front page of your own website, from Canova, who lists possibilities like receiving fluids more frequently than once every 5K. That might invalidate a record attempt, but would still be an interesting proof of concept (interesting to some people, at least, even if repulsive to you).

The fact that you keep insisting that non-record eligible means it will be downhill and wind-aided is simply wrong. It won't be either of those things.
