With some outstanding perfromances at the recent 100km world championships and an increasing popularity for 100km and ultra events the question arises:

Is the 100km the new marathon?

In this episode of the Partnerunning Show we explore the case for and against.

We don't see this as a debate about better or worse, there is a place for all distances as one person's 5k is another person's 200 mile. Rather it is an insight into the "running boom" as people seek to go further not just (or even) faster.
