On this week’s show we interview a legend of the golden era of British Middle distance running Steve Cram. It’s Marathon Talk Live today in Leeds. We update Febulous and introduce Marchvellous. Mary Keitany and Mo Farah run fast. Runners go long in the Brighton Half. Training Talk is all about how to work your pace out for a marathon. You rate your runs and this week there’s a Kiwi ranting.

Intro

INTERVIEW STEVE CRAM

One crazy summer in 1985 'the Jarrow Arrow' ruled the middle distance track world setting 1500m, mile, and 2000m world records in a 19 day period. 1983 world 1500m champion and 1984 Olympic 1500m silver medalist Steve Cram was at the top of British middle distance running in the golden era. The first man ever to run under 3mins 30sec for 1500m also has a marathon PB of 2:35 (set in 1999). Now a BBC commentator and event organiser Steve still lives in the North East.

Steve's next event - The Marathon of the North.

This week it's a RANT.

Siobhan Leachman rants about cross training injuries.
