While most runners dream about just making it through The New York City Marathon, elite runners strive for speed and record-breaking times. To show just how fast those runners really go, Asics is touring New York City with a one-speed treadmill set to elite marathoner Ryan Hall’s pace -- what amounts to 12 mph or a 4:46-minute mile.
Participants are strapped into a harness and dared to run as long as they can. Of the 500 who’ve participated since its launch last week, nobody has made it past 8 minutes.
Now imagine doing this for 26.2 miles!
