How important is running mechanics, and does it differ between sprinters and distance runners?

In events that last as little as 10 seconds, mechanics can be the difference between a gold medal and 4th place.  Intuitively, this just makes sense - but is it the same with runners of longer events?  

We asked Brooks Beasts Head Coach Danny Mackey what he thinks — you might be surprised by his answer!
