House Of Run: What Would A Kamworor/Kipchoge Matchup Look Like?

On this week’s episode of the House of Run, Jason and Kevin discuss the world record* by Netsanet Gudeta, Geoffrey Kamworor's 13:01 5K split, a team sweep by Ethiopia, the U.S. absence from the podium, and all the other storylines from the 2018 World Half Marathon Championships in Valencia, Spain.

The guys also discuss Kamworor's place in history and how he'd match up with Eliud Kipchoge, the stalled renovations at Hayward Field, and how many loops is too many loops in a cross country course. 


Highlights:

4:00 - Netsanet Gudeta ran the fastest time ever in a women’s only half marathon. Where does she stack up all-time?

7:40 - How did Geoffrey Kamworor split a 13:01 5K in the back half of this race? 

13:00 - What would happen in a matchup between Geoffrey Kamworor and Eliud Kipchoge?

19:00 - What’s it going to take for the U.S. to get a team medal at the World Half Marathon Championships?

27:15 - Hayward Field renovation update (Kevin is still not a fan). 

38:00 - Listener emails about the acceptable number of loops for a cross country course, a team 5000m or 10,000m on the track, the power of the high school record board, PR vs PB, and the proper pronunciation of Nevada.
