Episode 285 - Sean Ingle and Michelle Hardwick


On this week’s show we speak to the senior sports reporter at the Guardian, Sean Ingle about the ongoing Salazar scandal. Mary Keitany is back on top. Wilson Kipsang isn’t. Bro probably was. We remember Australian distance legend Ron Clarke and speak to Emmerdale actress Michelle Hardwick who is doing her first ever 10k in Leeds. You rate your run and stand tall on the Jabra Podium.
