BREAKING2 :: A Nike brand film by Martin Desmond Roe


After six months of scientifically advanced training, three of the world's most elite distance runners set out to break the two-hour marathon barrier.

Kenya's Eliud Kipchoge, Ethiopia's Lelisa Desisa and Eritrea's Zersenay Tadese go on a global trek to defy the unthinkable and break the two-hour feat, from testing in wind tunnels and running labs in the United States, to balancing training with their day-to- day lives in eastern Africa, to the final heart-pounding race in Italy.
