About Breaking3

Chris Farley, host of Pace the Nation -among other things – will be attempting his 19th sub-3 hour marathon after a disappointing 3:01:04 at the 2017 Philadelphia Marathon.

After lots of Miller Lites and support from his growing steering committee, Chris will attempt his sub-3 in the spirit of Breaking 2 . . . but like way better.


Event Details

This is a one man invitational according to Docs. Pacers can contact Docs if you want to help form the flying V.

Attempt will take place on Friday, December 29 around 10:00am at Hains Point after we check the barometric pressure and other stuff.

Awards ceremony at Four Courts around 2:00pm on race day.

How to Watch

We will be broadcasting on Facebook Live on the Pace the Nation Facebook Page.

Background info available via recent Pace the Nation episodes.
