Patrick Makau Smashes World Record at 38th Berlin Marathon

11:04am – RECORD  NEW WORLD MARATHON RECORD for PATRICK MAKAU IN 2:03:37

11:00am – 18 seconds ahead of the pace with about 1 km to go.

10:58am – 1:57:15 at 40km for Patrick Makau (2:03:40). Less than 6 minutes til we know…

10:57am – Florence Kiplagat at 1:56:10 at the 35km mark.

10:56am – Approaching 40km for Patrick Makau. 2:03:20 projected finishing time. 39 seconds ahead of the WR pace that Haile holds.

10:53am – 10 minutes until we have a new record. Will it fall? I’ll let you know in 10 min.

10:52am – 38km for Makau

10:49am – 15 minutes til a World Record for Patrick Makau

10:47am -6km to go!

10:46am – Makau with a 2:37 lead over Haile. Edwin Kimaiyo is 2:44 back.

10:44am – 1:42:16 for Makau at the 35km. The world record is in sight. Let’s go Patrick!

10:43am – Makau is trying to repeat…he won Berlin last year.

10:36am – 51 seconds ahead of WR at 33km

10:33am – 49 seconds ahead of the world record pace at 32km for Makau.

10:30am – Patrick Makau is at the 30km mark in 1:27:38. 2:03:02 predicted finishing time which would be a new world record. 12km to go.

10:26am – Florence reached 25km in 1:23:15. Paula Radcliffe is back by a large margin now.

10:26am – Makau has a sizable lead now.

10:25am – Haile is back on the course but is over a minute back.  Never underestimate the heart of this champion, but it is looking like he will have no chance to win today.

10:24am – Haile Gebrselassie is DONE! DNF FOR HAILE – He was so strong but has stepped off the course and is done.

10:23am – Haile and Makau are starting to posture each other as the gaming is in full effect now.

10:21am – The pacemakers are falling as the leading men will have to fight it out over the last 15km to see who will win today.

10:19am – Haile Gebrselassie is showing some signs of fatigue. I’d still never bet against him. Never underestimate the heart of a champion and the world record holder.

10:16am – Patrick Makau has taken over the lead (albeit a short one) at the 25km split.  Still tightly bound near the top for the men.

10:13am – 19 seconds back is Paula from Florence at the halfway point for the women.  Florence continues to run strong (and fast). There might be something wrong with Paula who often has injuries pop up from time to time in between her greatness.

10:09am – Paula has lost 8 more seconds to Florence at the 2okm mark and is now 17 seconds back. Flo hit 20km in 1:06:32

10:04am – At the half way point the men are on a world record pace with 5 men within a second.

10:00am – Men hit 20km at 58:30

9:58am – A rather boring race to this point as the men are nearing the halfway point.

9:55am – Haile has too many pacers in my opinion. As a viewer, they make it hard to see him during the race.  I have nothing against pacers in general but they should be limited to 1 or 2 per runner.

9:52am – Florence Kiplagat is at 15km split in 49:50 with Radcliffe 9 seconds back. Radcliffe is continuing to lose distance. Commentators race side think she might be having an issue or injury.

9:46am – Haile 15km split – 43:51

9:39am – Overhead look at Paula and Flo’s lead pack (w/ Flo’s pacers)

9:34am – Paula and Florence reach 10km at 33:16.

9:32am – Very fast pace so far led by Haile. Edwin Kimaiyo and Patrick Makau are there as well.  Lead men did 11th-km in 2:55.

9:30am – Men reach 10km at 29:17 (Haile) 2:03:30 pace

9:28am – Haile and his pacing team (below).

9:23am – Florence and Paula just hit the 7km mark.  The men are at the 8.5km mark.

9:20am – Haile running at about 23 KPM

And Florence Kiplaglat is leading the women at the 5K mark in 16:37. Radcliffe is literally on her heels.

9:16am – Haile hits the 5K mark at 14:36

9:07am – Berlin is the third largest marathon in the world. 1. New York City, 2. Chicago

9:04am – 3rd time in marathon history that the male and female marathon record holders have been in the same race.

9:04am – 40,963 runners today starting the race. 23% are women.

9:03am – This is Radcliffe’s first marathon since the birth of her second child.

9:00am – And we are off!!!!! The 38th Berlin BMW Marathon is now underway.

Almost perfect conditions: Sunny, only a slight wind, 12 Celsius at the start. Humidity is still a bit high with 75 %

8:58am – Could the Berlin Marathon bibs be any bigger? Placards!!

8:57am – Paula Radcliffe is being mentioned most often at the moment on Twitter with tweets offering her the best of luck.

8:55am – Mixed field today, so sorry women….no world records (STORY!!!)

8:50am – 10 minutes til the start!  125 nations represented.

8:41am (Berlin time) – Several tweets about horrible organization at the start of the Berlin Marathon.

All of the elites are ready to try to set new World Records (or is it World Bests?)

Will Paula Radcliffe win her 4th Berlin Marathon today? Or perhaps will Irina Mikitenko be able to pull off the upset?
