This month we celebrate the magic of the 25 lap race, the 10,000m! We talk to Nick Horspool and Stephen Day of Wellington who are creating a night of PBs for the 10k in November and want as many runners there as possible.
We also round of the track season with a close second for Nick Willis in the 5th Avenue Mile and the Masters Athletics Champs (including a couple of new age group NZ records). And we cover the World Mountain Running Champs, the NZ Road Champs and talk drugs in New Zealand local running.
