One woman. 150 marathons. 150 days. Erchana Murray-Bartlett has just broken the world record for consecutive marathons in a row, all while raising over $120,000 for The Wilderness Society. She puts her feet up (finally) to sit down with Cate and Hayley and share her incredible achievement.
Plus, we take a look around the grounds at results from the weekend including Olivia Gadecki’s wild-card win at the Australian Open and the disparity in media coverage between Erchana and Ned Brockman’s iconic runs.
And if you want more, we let you know what women’s sports you can catch over the next week.
