Strange question but would appreciate any best thoughts from the group. Of all the people to ever compete in the Race Across America (most interested in the 2 person or solo's, but curious about the "ever" category too from any size team), who has run the fastest legit marathon time in the SAME calendar year?
We've done some research and the fastest we've found was around 3:04. This makes sense, as the combination of the event drawing primarily those focused on (duh) cycling and the fact that it's in the middle of the year eliminates most legitimate marathon training. But it would interesting to see if anyone has ever run under 3:00 (or 2:50?) in the same calendar year.
If you have any insight, please let me know. THANK YOU!!
