The sub 2.45 marathon thread
10:21am, 8 Dec 2023
Big_GI did a similar thing for sub 3s, and the below is copied from a different thread.
I saw there were 5168 sub-3s at Valencia, from 26245 finishers (nearly 20%). London had 3004/48792 (6%), and Boston had 4190/26624 (16%). CIM was also yesterday and is a course Americans use for olympic qualifying and there were 1467/9213 (16%). It’s amazing how quickly Valencia has cemented itself as a race that people go to try and get a fast time.

J2RAlways pleased to see the 'old' guys doing well, so good to see Bekele set a new masters world record there (2:04:19). I know the 63 year old Tommy Hughes was hoping for a rather better time than the 2:47 he got, but I'd be happy enough with that!
