Marathon Talk has returned in 2022 as part of the Abbott World Marathon Majors family. Hosted by Martin Yelling and the great Deena Kastor, every two weeks we'll bring you news, views and some amazing guest interviews from across the world of marathons and running.


episode 3: E3: Edna Kiplagat

In any sport it’s ideal to learn from the very best, and as a two-time Marathon World Champion and three-time Abbott World Marathon Majors series winner, it’s hard to find better than Edna Kiplagat.

Labelled the ‘Queen of Persistence’ by Outside Magazine, the strength of her mindset is equalled by her consistent success throughout the years.
