This is London, home of the biggest fundraising event in the world, the London Marathon.
Join us on the A Mile with Me - London Marathon special as we tell the history of the London Marathon and how the 26.2 mile distance came about in London, exactly 100 years ago. Hear the story of Dorando Pietri, who drank wine along the way and was still the first man over the line in the 1908 Olympic marathon.
Also we are at the British Academy overlooking the finish line at The Mall and hear about the work of Oxfam in Liberia directly from Abraham, a local worker on the ground. We also hear a heart warming personal account of this year’s race from a lovely young lady called Alex, who ran through her tears to achieve the title of “Marathoner”!
Join me on the run along the Beaulieu River in Hampshire, and join “Team Pingu” on their Trail training on the Solent Way path. Also join my Trailwalker team as we get caught in a blizzard on an exposed headland in the Purbecks. The snow was blowing horizontally into the side of our faces. In direct contrast, join me for a gentle evening run on a Spring Evening. Its all in Edition Mile006 of A Mile with Me podcast
