How long could you keep up with a professional marathon runner? – Asics.

Asics provided the opportunity to know the exact amount of time in a fun stunt set up by fitness brand Asics ahead of Sunday’s ING New York City Marathon.

The stunt was the brainchild of ad agency Vitro, who set up a custom treadmill in the middle of the Big Apple and challenged people to see how long they can keep up with U.S. runner Ryan Hall’s marathon pace of 4:46 minutes per mile.

Runners were even supplied with a safety harness to make sure “their pride” was left intact.

The result? Well, predictably, not that good. “So far, the record is just over eight minutes,” a Vitro spokesperson revealed. That means the best the average person could do is manage two miles at the pace Hall manages for more than 26.
