Race day is right around the corner and there will be lots of heavy hitters on the starting line this Saturday in Houston, including American record holder Ryan Hall, who set the still-standing U.S. mark of 59:43 there in 2007. Breathing down his neck will be a flurry of fast guys, including sub-61 minute runners Mo Trafeh (60:39 PR) and Abdi Abdirahman (60:29 PR), along with such unpredictables as Jorge Torres and Robert Cheseret.

So who’s gonna win? Let us know by voting in the poll below!
