    Why is there a swath of grass in front of the HJ bar?

      Looks like Mondo to me, but I wanted to know why the HJ standards like like football uprights . . .

          because it's an artist's rendering, not a photograph?

            Just some more disrespect for the long track distances. I hate this.

              The final, final repeat final step will be cyborgs, a la The Terminator that will rabbit humans all the way. And if the human can't cut it, The Terminator will kill the failed runner.

                Exactly. An artist unfamiliar with his/her subject.

                    Think of it as a run in the park, with lots of interested spectators close by.
                    If it's run on a track, I would certainly include times in lists, perhaps with an asterisk, but at 5000m, is there any significant statistical advantage gained?

                      As for an elite distance race in the park...They did something similar in Britain in 1985.

                        no, but there's no reason for them not to be part of World Rankings

                            All I can think of when I see that picture is the massive amount of WORK that went into building that - a banked 560m track!

                              a news flash from NY Times (wonder how much this will affect aany U.S. athletes who aren't yet in Europe?):
                              The European Union removed the United States from its “safe list” of countries whose residents can travel to its 27 member states without requirements such as coronavirus testing and the need to quarantine.
