They would fail miserable. I just picked up running after a 6 month shrink cycle from quitting bodybuilding. I ran 3 miles and got a contusion in my foot. Even after losing 40 lbs of mass my body could handle it. It would take 6-12 months of training as stated earlier.

I think a better question is there any Olympia contestant that can run one 8 minute mile?

 Completing a marathon isn't the same as running a marathon. Any fatso can do a 5 hour marathon. You have to be in serious shape to run a sub 3 hour marathon.

this topic is bad and OP should feel bad.

trashing your health by abusing anabolic steroids and hormones is a lifestyle choice

just like being morbidly obese

The question is in a relatively decent time so the above actually proves it can not be done cause this guy took over 9 hours.
