I wrote about the 105 x 400m Relay which is a full 26 Mile 385 Yard Marathon (actually, it’s 105.5 laps)
How about running a mile on a 84-meter track in Anchorage, Alaska?
How about running a Mile relay on that same track? More specifically, 19 X 84m Mile Relay?
Well, now you can. Check out this youtube video below:
They still ran 4:21, which is 13.7 seconds per lap (of 84 meters with the two tight turns)
What were they thinking building this track?
Maybe they were trying to copy Athen’s Panathenaic Stadium? Home of the first Olympics in 1896?
