It's a fairly solid field, as you might expect considering so many men still don't have the standard. I'm actually a little surprised there aren't MORE American men running it. It's much easier to run 2:11 in Chicago than NYC.
Rumor has it that Chicago isn't excepting more runners in it's elite field. So Americans chasing the standard are sol.
I couldn't get in with a 2:17 PR so not sure why they are limiting the field so much or what their criteria is.
