What is #Breaking2? and Who Are three runners attempting the sub-two marathon, Everything You Wanna Know

This is good for short-term interest in running and it will be interesting to see if any other big brands try something similar. 

None of those factors are at play over the weekend.

The attempt is backed by Nike and cynics say it’s nothing more than a marketing gimmick. The sports giant, of course, insist that it’s about how a combination of talent, training and technology can produce astounding results.

Who is running it?

Kenya’s Eliud Kipchoge, 32, last year's Olympic marathon gold medallist and former 5000m world champion, who has a PB of 2:03:05 - the third-fastest in history.

Eritrea’s Zersenay Tadese, 35, current half-marathon world record holder with 58:23 minutes

Ethiopia’s Lelisa Desisa, 26, with a marathon PB of 2:04.45.
