Will someone break two hours in the marathon? What was the Barkley Marathons like for Gary Robbins? And what’s our favourite running memories?
In this week’s episode, Canadian Running’s editor Michael Doyle, web editor Sinead Mulhern and staff writer Tim Huebsch discuss:
The sub-two hour marathon
The panel debate the merits and drawbacks of both sub-two hour marathon projects by Adidas and Nike, and what to look for when watching Nike’s big attempt on a F1 racetrack in Italy in May.
Gary Robbins on his Barkley Marathons experience
Sinead and Michael were the first to interview the Canadian ultrarunner after his dramatic experience at this year’s Barkley. The interview was so wide-ranging and intense that we have also uploaded an uncut version as its own standalone podcast episode. You can listen to it here.
Our favourite runs
Sinead, Tim and Michael chat about some of their most memorable running experiences from around the world, as well as their nostalgic personal favourite running memories and bucket-list spots still on their lists.
