Joshua Cheptegei is Distance Running's New King + Monaco Madness

5 months ago

Correction to podcast: The 2020 Marine Corps Marathon is only virtual this year. We reported erroneously that it was still slated to be held in person in the podcast.

Joshua Cheptegei ran 12:35.36 to break Kenenisa Bekele's world 5,000m record, Jakob Ingebrigtsen ran a European 1500m record and Monaco more than lived up to the hype.

Fast domestic times at the Music City Distance Carnival including a 4:01 by a high school sophomore. Peachtree 2020 is cancelled, one big marathon in the US is still on, and Stockholm DL is on Sunday. We break it all down.
