Having signed up for the 2018 Virgin Money London Marathon, George knows he'll need all the help he can get. Can Sports Personality of The Year 2017 and four-time Olympic champion, Sir Mo Farah, and The Body Coach, Joe Wicks, get George over the finish line? Will their training, advice, guidance and moral support be enough? 

Join George every step of the way as he faces the greatest challenge of his life. Experience every early morning, painful blister and moment of triumph. Meet sports psychologists, Olympians and Marathon legends along the way. Packed with entertaining insights, immersive reality coverage of his training and essential tips, this series promises to entertain, educate and inspire, whether you're competing on race day, or simply watching from home.

Easy listen that's great on runs!

It's an enjoyable listen that stays varied by focusing on different themes and guests on a weekly basis. It's great on a run as you're naturally already thinking about running so is a relevant distraction, but have listened to a couple on the tube as well and it was still informative. Hearing George panting gives you a bit of confidence too!

Motivational and Enjoyable

Good humour throughout. I have never fancied doing a marathon but if you do want to do one then I can't imagine any better advice. This also shows how valuable it is to have support and discussion about any challenge you may have.

Brilliant podcast - inspiring and motivational

George Lamb hosts this brilliantly with informative and motivational chats with Mo and Joe. The short light-hearted interviews with athletes, fundraisers, experts and volunteers give a well-rounded picture of all aspects of running a marathon. I've never run a marathon myself but feel completely inspired to do one now!
