Is the pace per mile or per kilometer?

I ask because in the video you said per mile but all the measurements are in km.

He does explicitly say "K here stands for kilometers Then, we've got the runner's pace per mile,"

Try doing a time/distance calculation yourself and see if that's correct. If you determine that the pace is per K instead, you can make a bug report to the Support folks (and let us know here as well).

For anyone wondering in 2019:

The voice over is correct. ~5 minutes per kilometer would indicate a finishing time of around 3,5 hours instead of the actual 2:10 for the first place finisher.

With only 26 miles and 5 minutes per, you come to pretty spot on 2:10 hours of finishing time.
