RE: LAM 2015: More Unbelievable Splits in Record Temps

It's been briefly discussed, and is essentially why this thread was started, but how come such a remarkable 70+ marathon time did not garner much attention?

Gene Dykes ran a smoking fast time on an ineligible course and it was picked up by the AP and running sites.

This particular result was essentially overlooked.


I think the running media does not accept Frank's efforts.

For the record, Gene Dykes's 2:54:28 in Jacksonville was "ineligible" for a World age group record record only because the course was not "sanctioned." However, Jacksonville is a certified out and back course which otherwise is eligible for records.
