Everyone has heard of Jared Hazen. He has been Walmsley's protege for over 3 years. He trained with Steve Spence at Ship, putting down 12 mile tempos at 5:15-5:25/mi and 4hr long runs while winning practically ever race Jim didn't enter and has been closing the gap on him. Did you not follow Lake Sonoma this year? 2nd Fastest Performer of All-Time, ahead of your local legends Zach Miller and Sage Canaday, and a slew of other "pros" over the years. He also has the 3rd fastest all-time at the JFK 50 Mile. You're a bit clueless.
Are you new to the sport? Welcome.

The answer should have been, "When some dude no one has ever heard (the 2nd place finisher) of us also breaks a 'famous course record', then you realize the CR wasn't all that good to begin with."
If someone offered $250,000 for the first sub-17, who doesn't think an African runner would break it the 1st year that there was good weather?
