All-Time Running Greats

In this new section for the site we are going to explore some of the greatest athletes who have walked (or run!) on this earth.

This is going to be a growing section, not only in terms of increasing the number of athletes that we are going to profile, but we will also be adding to the depth of information that we provide on them.

As we go along we will be looking to give a profile of them as athletes, an insight in to the training they did, the major races which defined them as great and what happened to them when they stopped running (if they are not still competing).

If you feel there is an athlete who should be profiled here, who isn't please let us know. We know there are plenty more, but this list is a pretty good place to start

Some of the profiles on the site are not yet complete, please bear with us they will be up shortly.
