TRACK! A Podcast for runners. A podcast focused on the UK club running scene with interviews, running news and topical conversation.
TRACK! Episode 18 - Hayley Carruthers
This week on TRACK! We are delighted to be joined by an athlete who has been described as one of the biggest revelations in British elite distance running in years. Hayley Carruthers has impressive PBs from 1500m to the marathon distance with a best time of 2.32 over 26.2 miles. Hayley runs for BRAT, has represented England over the marathon distance and has recently become a HOKA One One sponsored runner.
Hayley came to a wider audience’s attention in 2019 when competing at the LDN Marathon finishing in a time of 2.34. Although Hayley is a relative latecomer to running, having only taken the sport up seriously in 2016, her progression in that time highlights her potential in the coming years so we are delighted that she has agreed to take some time out to talk all things running with us here at TRACK!
