    When do you think someone will break 2 hours in the men's marathon?

    The world record seems to be creeping ever closer to that magic number and the Kenyans seem to be dominant but is 2 hours a step too far?

    I think it will eventually happen but not for a few years at the earliest.  The current world record is recognized as 2:03:38 although Geoffrey Mutai ran a 2:03:02 at the 2011 Boston Marathon.  If I had to make a prediction I would say we are 10 to 15 years away from this milestone.

    I agree with bdegiullio, it will happen, but maybe not in the next several years.  Simply amazing to consider the possibilities!
