All about running. By runners, for runners.

Episode 77 - Jo Pavey

Released: Tuesday 28th June 2011

Three time Olympian Jo Pavey is a great of British running, having set the English schools 1,500m record 23 years ago she is still going strong and earlier this year completed her debut marathon in 2:28, stepping straight to the front of the London 2012 qualification queue. Tony suffered a few technical glitches but still delivered his usual hilarity and with both Martin and Tom abroad this week we achieved only our second ever sub 60 minute show.
