Greatest Runners of All Timethemusicking101 This means any distance from the shortest sprint to the longest ultramarathon. The title does not say the fastest. I am referring to the runner who did their job well but inspired groups while doing it.

Can't believe he isn't even on the list. Haile G is the greatest runner of all time. He broke 61 Ethiopian National Records ranging from 800 meters to the marathon and set 27 world records over the course of his long career in cross country, indoor track, outdoors, and road racing. His form, style, guts, and kick are all both unique as they are legendary. He also gives back to his people, owns several successful businesses, speaks fantastic English, and plans to serve in his government to further spread his care for others. All-around stand-up guy. My hero & inspiration
World record holder 5000 and 10000 will go and break the marathon world record 11 times world cross country champion
Four gold olympic medals at 5 and 10 km.
While Wanjiru had a short career it was incredible. I have never seen a runner who could break a field down like Wanjiru. His form was near perfect and his toughness was unsurpassed. In short the man was a beast on the roads and had he lived there would be no debate.
