Used to listen every week now occasionally depending on the guest. Martin & Tony are good but Tom & Holly too self obsessed to the point that i just delete it, H in particular. Keep trying with it but it’s not there anymore. To hear Tom virtually dismiss the recent weekend event ‘is this...Read full review »

I’ve listened to this for years now during my long runs, from three hour epics in the hills to times when 5k was a struggle. I honestly don’t think I’d have kept going through babies, injury, low mojo and high mojo without it. Thank you fir your company.

At times brilliant. Other times painful. Sadly, the brilliant episodes are few and far between and, even though there are a still some highlights, at times it’s a slog to finish. The two main presenters are in a much different place than a few years ago and personally speaking I find their...Read full review »

In truth, I haven't been enjoying this podcast for a while. I did hope it would get back to its best but the combo of Martin and Holly consistently turn me off as they direct the conversation away from running at every opportunity. Now that it seems like the both of them will be carrying on...Read full review »

Awful podcast so hard to listen to. Martin Yelling is a big head with strange opinions. He can’t listen to anyone else and topics are increasingly boring and non-running related. Holly is cringe and adds nothing. Never listening again.

I used to enjoy this podcast when it was actually about running. But Martin in particular has decided to become a really big SJW. It’s so annoying, give me Tony and Holly any day of the week who are down to earth and not trying to save save the flippin planet. The most recent interview with...Read full review »

I personally love the extended chat at the beginning of the show (particularly when Holly or Tony are involved) - I’m finding the guests a little dull recently - so please just keep on chatting!

Just some increasingly miserable content from Martin moaning / preaching.
jimmybicycle via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/02/20
I just love this show. The back catalogue is so wonderful; helps you to realise the evolution we all go through as runners. I love the interviews but more than that it’s just so precious to have such a record of running, in the UK and around the world, for the past 10 years. A record of what is /...Read full review »

I was drawn to Marathon Talk some 10 years ago when training for my first marathon. As a new runner at the time it was incredibly welcoming, unpretentious and accompanied me on many solo long runs. Since then I’ve dipped in and out when I’ve wanted to reconnect to what it was like to be a new...Read full review »

Despite never having run a marathon (and maybe never will) I’ve been listening every week for four or five years. Have really enjoyed the more recent evolution of the show, it can’t say the same forever. I’m really enjoying Tony and Holly’s role as presenters alongside Tom and Martin. My...Read full review »
Joanna Hants via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/18/20
Used to look forward to the long run to tune in but just listened to the most recent episode and some airy fairy hippy waffle about not stepping on flowers. I understand the focus away from performance but I assume we were all drawn to MT in the first place because it was originally about...Read full review »
wannabe neverwas via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/16/20
This was a must listen on my long runs (or even split into two for shorter ones) but since the 500th episode it has become hit or miss. The last episode had 25 minutes of “chat” at the beginning that just did not resonate with me - and it’s not all about running any longer. Some of the interviews...Read full review »

I’ve listened since 2012 and have heard every episode. I really like the new format and it’s much less blokey now the presenters are more relaxed. Bring back Boy on the run.
Chasdaz via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/23/20
Used to find this quite informative and insightful. Now it's just descended into three middle-aged podcasters who whine about how new shoes are ruining the sport of running every week.Read full review »
Runner from Oz via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 01/18/20
I used to love this podcast. Downloading it on a Wednesday and listening to it on my next run was a bit of the week I always looked forward to. Having Martin give a 5 minute lecture on how to look after your kids this week was really the last straw though. It left me feeling really angry. I...Read full review »
asgt1974 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/12/20
I used to really enjoy this but it’s possibly had its day. At some stage during the last year it has gone from being the Marathon Talk podcast to the anti-Vaporfly podcast. Perhaps they’re sponsored by Nike now and are pushing the “its only the shoes that make the runner” angle as they seem...Read full review »

Marathon talk has degenerated into park run talk with Martin doing the same one in about the same time each week (boring). Tom doesn’t run at all now so bangs on about the Park run organisation rather than running. Better with Tony and Holly.

More or less listened to every show , some very good guests which you can learn a lot and insight to there training ,
crap runner via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/05/19
This is a thoroughly engaging, consistently entertaining 90 minutes or so of running related chat and info. It’s perfect fodder when out running. The addition of Holly and Tony as additional presenters has freshened up an already enjoyable podcast. Well done to the whole team.

I became a runner mere months after this podcast was launched and was lucky enough to discover it right away. Over nearly a decade and 9,500+ kilometres since, during which I have listened to every episodes, my enjoyment hasn’t wained one bit as they have a diverse range of excellent interviews...Read full review »

Discovered this podcast a few weeks ago and I’ve ripped through the first 52 episodes so far. It’s been awesome to relive running related history. I’ve found the training talk info to be incredibly useful. The interviews are great and Tom and Martin have fantastic chemistry. However, there is no...Read full review »

The lads and Holly keep u up to date with all that happens in the world of running while giving training tips and great interviews and making you laugh along the way.. bring on a 1000
Is that metres or yards? via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 08/09/19
Can’t understand those who say it is too long. You don’t have to listen in one go. I often break it up which means I get 3 days of tuning in. I love all sections of the podcast. Tom and Martin have jobs and they get this out every week for free. Having guest presenters keeps it going when they...Read full review »

Love Martin and Tom (and Holly and Tony). I’ve learned so much and laughed so much and now speak with a British accent even though I’m from Indiana. Keep up the brilliant interviews, lads!
Steve Wallen via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/03/19
Been a listener since Ep.1; love the mix of science, news, comedy (Tony’s Trials) and the two main presenters’ friendship. Now also with our newer presenter (Holly) it makes for an interesting, funny and informative Podcast on running. Thanks Martin, Tom, Tony and Holly for all you do for our...Read full review »

Entertaining and informative, has its funny moments too.
Quatrebras via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/10/19
The podcast has some great content but it is too long.
#funky# via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/01/19
Very quickly became one of my favourite podcasts & can’t wait for a new episode every week. Learning lots!
blondie_ontherun via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/24/19
Love this pod but the lads really should invest in some proper audio equipment. It can be all over the place.
Donal Gibson via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 04/09/19
Fantastic informative show. Love the banter between Martin & Tom.
Hulk24inch via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/03/19
Always my favorite podcast. Pity there’s only one episode a week. Love the banter between the lads, but the best bit is always their in depth and insightful interviews and the training talks.
martinlanders77 via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 12/10/18
Huge Fan!!! Hilarious, informative and inspiring! Perfect companion for the weekly Long Runs! Combo of Masterpiece Theater-Monty python-for Marathoners!!! Ten out of Ten!!!
VirginiaRunHerGirl via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/01/18
I really enjoy listening to the banter between Martin and Tom, but Holly and Tony are great, too! Really look forward to their perspective on all that is running, and how they bring in their own experiences.

Conners 1966 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/22/18
This used to be a great training tool for marathon running from two very knowledgeable and enthusiastic presenters and an entertaining slot from Tony Audenshaw. Whilst Tony's spot is still legendary and the highlight of the show, the rest is now little more than banter from Tom and Martin,...Read full review »
Fastest fruit via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/13/18
When Martin and Tom are on form this podcast works so well. Occasionally broken up with other presenters to keep the streak going which is fine but the winning formula can be lost a little. Very informative show and the interviews are great if the sound quality is too which it sometimes isn’t but...Read full review »
Mikee Houston via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/07/18
Before listening to this podcast I hadn’t ran a marathon, now with four under my belt I am hooked. With Martin hugging trees while Tom sits with Homer. Holly always at the head of the race and Tony is uplifting. Wednesday is the highlight of my week.
WillPither via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/18/18
I have listened to a few different podcasts on running and have found this one the most interesting with entertaining presenters.
ARunner49 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/18/18
Hand on heart. I am Tom's dad. But I think they do a superb job. Always interesting. Always informative. Always encouraging. But they do it with a light touch and bring out the very best and most interesting stories in the people they interview. I have listened since the very first one and...Read full review »
BrianGerardWilliams via Apple Podcasts · Switzerland · 07/20/18
Great to listen to the lads each week talking about running and life keeping it real! Always with great guests who always give me something to think about with my training and goals. Keep it going Tom & Martin
Nigel Yarm via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/13/18
I listen and enjoy so many running podcasts but Marathon Talk is the king of them all. The content is packed and informative,the humour keeps it easy listening as does the banter between Martin and Tom and the guests they get on the show are brilliant.
Darren Deas via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/07/18
I love the format of this podcast as it reminds me of a magazine - regular topics with a good structure. Found this years after it started but have downloaded tons of episodes with excellent guests. The hosts are brilliant as are the very occasional stand-ins. This has kept me company on many...Read full review »
