At last Sunday’s Fortis Marathon Rotterdam in the Netherlands, half a dozen pacemakers swept Kenyans Patrick Makau and Geoffrey Mutai to sub-2:05 finish times, the fastest in the world this year and the fifth and seventh-fastest of all-time.
In addition to the curtain of pacemakers who blocked the wind, the Kenyan duo also had a race manager barking instructions and encouragement from a motorcycle, and the same manager handed them drinks at the wave of a hand. Although legal, those valuable assists made marathon purists cringe, and viewers of Universal Sports’ live coverage of Monday’s 114th Boston Marathon won’t see them during the sport’s most famous race from Hopkinton to Boston’s Back Bay.
