#mastersbreaking2 is a fun way for masters (35+) runners to compete and collaborate. It started because we thought it would be "fun" to try and break 2:00 in 800 meters. It was coined “breaking2”, borrowing from Kipchoge’s famous sub-2 hour marathon attempt. The idea has resonated with a lot of people!
Sub-2:00 in the 800m is a challenge for male runners at any age. It takes an elite-level performance at 40yrs old (close to a 90% age-graded score). And a sub-2:00 performance for a 40-year old male can be extended to men and women of every age. So pick "your breaking2" goal and go for it!
