Episode 393 - Nick Symmonds (Part Two)


On this week’s show we’re joined by Nick Symmonds again for Part Two of his interview and Phil Cook talks Night of Endurance. There’s an update from the Para Athletic World champs in London, a laughable doping excuse, Killian runs 85miles with a busted shoulder and still wins, Farah announces final track race in the UK and always finish your run (even after a spot of lifesaving). Plus,you guys rock your Marathon Talk kit all around the world, stand atop the Podium, climb aboard the Launch Pad and Rate Your Runs.
