Get pumped for the Nike Breaking2 two-hour marathon attempt that goes down in Italy on Friday night (Canadian time). Nearly three minutes will need to be taken off the current men’s world record (2:02:57) if a sub-two-hour marathon is to be accomplished.
Nike released seven videos on May 4 ahead of the May 6 (local time) two-hour marathon attempt. All of the videos are short and sweet– for the most part, they’re less than two minutes in length. The videos look at who the runners are, where they train, the science behind the two-hour marathon and much more.
At 5:45 a.m. GMT on Saturday, 11:45 p.m. EDT, make sure to tune in to the live stream. There will be some pre-race commentary so make sure to check out our Nike Breaking2 feed a few minutes ahead of time.
