Seems like only yesterday we were marking one year to go to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. Now, in an Olympic version of Groundhog Day, here we are celebrating it all over again. It is one year to go to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. Still. In 12 months, 52 weeks,...
Peter Bol ran his Olympic qualifying time of 1:45.78 in Germany which also placed him 17th on the Australian all-time list. Bol will be making his Olympic debut in Rio. He is a rising superstar of the sport and easily one of the most exciting athletes to run for...
The Brooks Levitate 4 is a true workhorse of a neutral high mileage training shoe. Not the lightest of shoes, nor the fastest; but the trade off is you'll get many extra k's out of a pair of Levitates than you may in many other brands. Runner's Tribe were lucky enough to take a pair through 210km, and below is our unpaid for analysis.
Twenty years ago, I ran the Host City Marathon, the selection ‘trial’ race over the Sydney Olympic course. It was a decision which sits near the top of my ‘why on earth did I do that?’ list. In fact, it was added before the marathon even finished, just past the...

We studied the training of 10 past and current champions; their respective favourite marathon sessions are outlined in this exclusive feature article for Runner’s Tribe Addict. Athletes studied: Robert de Castella Eliud Kipchoge Lisa Ondieki Florence Kiplagat Benita Willis Haile Gebreslassie Steve Moneghetti Jessica Trengove Derek Clayton Kenenisa Bekele
A Column By Len Johnson When David McNeill ran 27:45.01 in the Payton Jordan meeting in Stanford this May, his performance had a certain Dickensian element. To cite the opening line from A Tale of Two Cities , it was the best of times, it was the worst of times. The...
Now, after the dramatic championships just staged in Bathurst, it is time to re-visit that question. What’s changed for the better? What’s changed for the worse? Has anything changed at all?
Some people say that the only way to improve your running is to run.  This is not the case. Even the most elite athletes substitute running sessions for cross-training work outs to give their bodies a break. It wasn’t until I had a severe injury (ruptured plantar fascia that meant...
