Previewing the Launceston 10k this weekend
For the last episode in season two, we’re joined by the cult hero Jack Rayner. Jack is probably best known for his 2:11:06 marathon on debut in London 2019, but this week we’re talking about the Launceston Running Festival coming up this weekend. Jack is headlining a star studded field in the 10km – Jack is the defending champ here, having won in 2018 (the race wasn’t held in 2019).
We also hear about how Jack has bounced back from an injury that ruined his plans for this year’s London Marathon, and learn about his plans over summer – exciting to hear he will be spending more time on the track in the first half of 2021.
Finally, Jack talks a bit about his marathon plans leading into the Olympics – revealing he’ll probably only race another one before Tokyo if it looks like someone will eclipse his 2:11:06 and knock him out of an Olympic spot.
Thanks for joining us this season on Running Things – the response has been amazing and we’re so glad you’ve enjoyed the guests we’ve had on each week. Look for season three in mid January!
