This week on The Rundown we cover Ruth Chepngetich‘s world record at the Istanbul Half-Marathon. We also discuss the abysmal live coverage of that event, and its impact on fan interest in our sport. We talk about Beth Potter‘s stunning 5K road world best, as well as a speedy steeplechase season-opener by Canadian Charlotte Prouse at the newly renovated Hayward Field.
