I posted before about Alex Vero and his transformation from overweight smoker to 73 minute half marathoner.
His documentary, Running to the Limits, which investigates what it takes to become an international runner, was recently on Channel 4 and for the next 11 days you can watch it on 4oD.
It’s well worth watching and features interviews with Ron Hill, Richard Nerurkar, Haile Gebrselassie and Bruce Tulloh.
As well as documenting Vero’s own efforts to run an Olympic qualifying time, he also follows the progress of British 2:21 marathoner Ben Moreau and a young Ethiopian runner, Mengitsu Abebe.
As a final bonus for Bristol runners the programme includes coverage of the 2008 Bristol Half Marathon, with cameos from a few Bristol & West runners!
