9 out of 10 world record holders for the marathon are Kenyan, and they’re all from Eldoret.

So why do white people even try? At their best they can never beat the runners from Kenya, they’re not even close.

Published in a 31-page spread in the newest addition to the Norwegian magazine flora – PLOT.

Some of these were in the article, some of them didn’t make the cut.

Also, they’re in no particular order.
