Episode 486 - The London Marathon Special


We bring you all the news from a spectacular Virgin Money London Marathon. There were world records for a fastest second half, first loser, and third placer... incredible performances from male and female Brits, stories galore, and Eliud Kipchoge at his glorious best. We also catch up with Sarah O’shea about how her race went, and Training Talk looks at what to do if your marathon didn’t go to plan.
