Let's have a pointless UKC argument.

I reckon Kipchoge wouldn't be able to beat Killian's time. What do you lot reckon?

Please don't all agree with me or else it's pointless.

If you do argue with me, my Dad's bigger than your Dad and he's a policeman and he'll put your dad in jail

That would be ridiculous. Unthinkable.

A bit like the top sport and competition climber suddenly deciding to have a go at the hardest big-wall trad climb in the world.

How long has he got to train? Does he have to do it right now or next summer or in 3 years time?

I’ve often thought about world class long distance runners taking on things like the BG, Western States, UTMB etc.

My gut feel is that, with a couple of years getting used to the terrain, they’d completely reframe what’s possible in that world. 

IMHO etc.

Only if there was a pacing drone all the way for him with trainers that are designed for 6000% increase grip on rock

I don't know. More importantly, could he beat Bruce Lee at backgammon?

Kipchoge would do a BGR in 5h 35m

I'd beat Kelly Slater at cycling.

I’m pretty sure they have hills and mountains in Kenya. 

I assume that’s where the “Kenyan hills” workout came from.

I fully endorse this very clever response.

Like, would Connor McGregor beat Floyd Mayweather at boxing? Or would Floyd Mayweather beat Connor McGregor at MMA?

Put enough money upfront and he might have a go. Great engine but who knows?

In reply to plyometrics: race directors for a lot of these type races dont invite Kenyans as they're pretty sure they'll clean up , reducing their media attraction

I honestly believe that I could beat Jornet's BGR and Kipchoge's marathon, if I put my mind to it and trained properly... #AgeOnlyANumber #NoSuchWordAsImpossible #PMA
