THE WORLD MARATHON RECORD

The Berlin Marathon took place yesterday and on a super fast course and in perfect conditions Dennis Kimetto from Kenya shattered the world marathon record in a time of 2:02:57 breaking the previous best by 26 seconds held by Wilson Kipsang. How long will it be before the 2:02 barrier is broken and then its just a matter of time before someone breaks 2hrs?

Later this week I will be interviewing some Kenyan development athletes, the next generation of marathon runners, and will be asking them that exact question.  I will also be out running with them for one of their easy jogs. Hope I can keep up!!!
