Have the Brownlee brothers ever done a half marathon or marathon and what time?

not sure, but alasdair could knock out a killer 10k if he wanted to.

i heard a rumour about him considering that event next year, after he took gold in the triathlon this year with a very impressive 10k split at the end of his triathlon.

Alistair Brownlee

Jonathan Brownlee

It would appear not (not that Power of 10 is all-encompassing but fairly useful).  But given they could both knock out a sub-30 10k, I imagine their times would be pretty tidy if they did the training. 65 HM / sub 2:20 marathon?

 

Also, a quick Google shows that Alistair could be up for some serious running!

They were on brekkie TV yesterday morning, Alistair suggested he might take a couple of weeks off tri training to train for a 10k and see what happened...

He did point out that everyone mentions that he was only a handfull of seconds behind Mo's time in London, But everyone seemed to forget that Mo has run nearly 3 minutes quicker than he had to to win the London 10k, Alastair said he wasn't sure he had that much in him

The Brownlee brothers are complete legends!  My favourite event of 2012 was watching them in the triathlon.  Would love to see Alastair just run a 10K to see what he is capable of!

I'm running the Chevin Chase on Boxing Day. Both of the Brownlee brothers have done it in the past so here's hoping they'll enter this year.

Mind you they'll be back home showered and changed by the time I get to the top of Otley Chevin

Apparently both of the Brownlee brothers and Mo, will be competing in a Superstars special this Christmas.  Longest distance will be 800m but it will be interesting if they go head to head.

Most amazing pair of young men, they impressed me as much as anyone in the Oylmpics.  So humble and down to earth yet so focussed and competitive.  What athletes.

Have been following the Brownlees for ages now - way before the Olympics - can't get enough of them!

The pride of Yorkshire great Lads.  And I'm a Lancashire lad with some connections to the part of Yorkshire they come from........hope they stick at the training and competition they would seem to not have too much close comp, though I guess they make it look easier than it really is........

Ali did Ribble Valley 10k last year and came 2nd in 29:15, so pretty handy. As far as I'm aware they've never raced long before but may well have trained long in the past, who knows. Jonny is probably about 30 secs behind Ali on 10k if they were both fresh

A Lancastrian with connections to the other side of he Pennines ? A mongrel you mean

Was lucky to meet them both in Leeds in August. A true inspiration to young athletes like me.

Monday 31st December brings the 'Auld Lang Syne' fell-race, hope to see them both there, as they did Daves races early on in their racing

It's the odd-one-out for Eileen & Dave, as it's purely entries in advance only (& a limit of 400 - FULL!), & I've got a place this this year

Cracking athletes.

One of our members contributed a lot to their early success, as he was their PE teacher at School, & recognised their abilities
