About

This is the website home of the podcast "Running: State of the Sport," hosted by George Hirsch and Amby Burfoot.

Every two weeks we will discuss the latest big news in running, and speak to a guest with a unique, insider perspective on the state of the sport. Our guests will include the smartest, most informed, most influential, and sometimes fastest runners in the world.

Our guests have included Jack Fleming, Boston Marathon race director; Mark Milde, Berlin Marathon race director; and Deena Kastor, American distance running legend.

We have many more exciting guests lined up for the coming months, with a particular emphasis on discussing the U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials, which will take place in early February.
