Episode 164 - Dave Moorcroft (Part One)


In 1982 Dave Moorcroft smashed the World 5,000m record out of sight, in the 30 years since then no non-African runner has achieved the same! Mo did however just break the British half marathon record, it was the Tokyo Marathon and Martin spoke to Adam Eason about developing the running mind.
