Not an official record since this wasn't a "real" marathon, but damn... This is well worth a watch:


Go to 5:50, hop on the treadmill and try to match the pace. Good luck.

I thought somebody had already broken two hours in a marathon race that didn't count.

Not that I know of. Kipchoge ran the previous fastest in a similar non official event in 2017 in Italy, when he ran 2:00:25

That must have been the previous event that I was thinking of I remember it was a record that didn't count because he was running which scooters alongside him to pace him and give water.
