This week it's Part Two of our interview with American marathoning legend Bill Rodgers. There were some fast times at the Frankfurt Marathon and a Rio qualifier for Scot Callum Hawkins. Jo Pavey sets another record. A Kenyan gets caught out and there’s trouble afoot at UKAD and some website gremlins have been visiting us.
