Many of those making up Australia’s fastest marathoners are versatile, capable of performing well at road, track and cross-country, and over a range of distances at all three.Shaun Creighton certainly sits at the most versatile end of the spectrum. Of his nine companions in the all-time top 10 men, only Pat Carroll goes close to him in that regard. Even there, however, it is Creighton first, daylight second.
If you had to choose one favourite session that you believe really worked for you and got you fit, what would it be? Whether training for the steeplechase, 5k, 10k or marathon; running four hard repetitions of a mile with a 2-minute rest between reps (on or off the track – usually off the track but on the same course for benchmarking purposes) got me fit and was a good benchmark. When training for the marathon I’d sometimes do five instead of four reps.

Rodger Kwemoi
In February, Rodger Kwemoi shocked a very strong field to win the Kenyan Cross country title, booking himself a slot to the African Cross Country Championships. But for close observers of the sport, Kwemoi wasn’t a new name. He is a 10,000m specialist, he has a Commonwealth bronze medal at the distance. He is a former U20 world champion and in 2019 he finished fourth at the world championships. The 24 year old finished second in 5000m at the Athletics Kenya’s first track and field meet and told Enda that although the race was very competitive and tough, he was pleased with the outcome. We had a chat with him about the race and more:
