Legacy

I just love this show. The back catalogue is so wonderful; helps you to realise the evolution we all go through as runners. I love the interviews but more than that it’s just so precious to have such a record of running, in the UK and around the world, for the past 10 years. A record of what is / has been/is still important. How things change and how they stay the same. I’ve learnt so much through this show and laughed so much too. Thank you :)

Great pod and an amazing legacy of running content

I was drawn to Marathon Talk some 10 years ago when training for my first marathon. As a new runner at the time it was incredibly welcoming, unpretentious and accompanied me on many solo long runs. Since then I’ve dipped in and out when I’ve wanted to reconnect to what it was like to be a new runner starting out. The pod of course does cater for runners of all abilities but the emphasis for me was always about participation and celebrating everyone just getting out the door. In the last 2-3 years I’ve fallen away from listening due to the change in format and also a change in what I want to listen to. I go for podcasts now which have presenters which may mirror the running community that I recognise today and unfortunately the current format just doesn't work for me.

Still, congratulations Marathon Talk for inspiring me and millions of others to get out of the door. You have left an incredible legacy of amazing interviews and whimsy for generations to come.

Thoroughly enjoying the show’s evolution

Despite never having run a marathon (and maybe never will) I’ve been listening every week for four or five years. Have really enjoyed the more recent evolution of the show, it can’t say the same forever. I’m really enjoying Tony and Holly’s role as presenters alongside Tom and Martin. My favourite segment is simply the chat at the beginning between the presenters about the latest athletics news - love that it keeps me abreast of forms of running that I otherwise wouldn’t really keep up-to-date about - cross country, marathons, track...and the occasional scandal. Thank you so much team for your dedication to keeping this podcast going for so many years, integral part of many peoples’ lives.
