Hmm, bit sceptical. Beginners get knocked early and are have to watch the quicker still running? Also interesting to see how they are going to manage it silverstone with the car of doom doing laps how will you know when your out if its on a different lap. Actually the more I think about it the more I don't want to do it. Sounds like an evil form of beep test.

I am getting the feeling this is aimed more at ultra runners to see who can keep going the longest (for which I am not).

As there is no finishing line as such, the tendency to 'cheat' might be that bit greater. It's not the same as marathon runners taking a short cut as there is a question of conscience involved; i.e. knowing that you failed to complete the full distance. Staying on the course long enough to avoid being caught is quite different.
