MARATHON WARN­ING

Athletics Weekly - - Letters -

THIS is my ad­vice to Sir Mo Farah. The marathon is un­for­giv­ing, it will chew you up and spit you out, it is no re­specter of rep­u­ta­tions.

There are 20 world-class ath­letes ca­pa­ble of run­ning three min­utes plus faster and the ma­jor­ity are 10 years younger. It would be an in­glo­ri­ous end to such an il­lus­tri­ous ca­reer. John Potts, Birch­field Har­ri­ers
