Drug runners

By Hugh Jones
At one time distance running was one of the cleaner disciplines under the athletics umbrella but when significant prize money arrived on the scene with the big city marathons it greatly intensified the incentive to cheat, says Hugh Jones.

Running into history

Hope turns into happiness

Bavaria’s largest marathon offers a scenic and fast route that takes runners past Munich’s most famous landmarks. Countless highlights follow one after another during the 42195m before reaching the finish line in the Olympic Stadium. The finish is an emotional place as runners cross the line to the cheers of the crowd.
