We had the pleasure of hosting Martin Yelling at our Kenya Impact Marathon in both 2017 and 2018. As an ambassador for our partners Five Talents UK, we were able to benefit from a contingent of his followers joining us at both races. For those who don’t know Martin is former international runner, elite duathlete and triathlete he’s finished the Hawaii Ironman and completed the Comrades Ultra. He also ran 260miles, 50,000ft of elevation in 7 days along the South West Coast Path but couldn’t finish the full 630mile route!
Martin is married to two-time Olympic marathon runner and Commonwealth medalist Liz Yelling and together they run endurance sports consultancy Yelling Performance.
So he knows a thing or two about running, and travelling for runs.
He also records a hugely influentional running podcast, Marathon Talk and you can take a listen to his post-race review and interviews here…
