Patrick Makau Runs Away With Marathon World Record

Patrick Makau not only smashed the previous world record time set by Haile Gebrselassie on the same course 3 years ago, he crushed the remainder of the star-studded field as it took almost 5 minutes for second place to cross the finish line. Below are the splits and corresponding paces. 

5km – 14:36 (2:03:13 pace)
10km – 29:17 (2:03:34)
15km – 43:51 (2:03:21)
20km – 58:30 (2:03:25)
Half-marathon – 61:43 (2:03:26)
25km – 1:13:18 (2:03:43)
30km – 1:27:38 (2:03:15)
35km – 1:42:16 (2:03:17)
40km – 1:57:15 (2:03:41)
Finish – 2:03:38

Below is a chart produced by a split calculator. Notice how precise the splits are for that pace. The next time you toe the line and think about banking time in the first half of the race, just think of ‘Metronome Makau’.
