Who does Stacy Chesnutt think is the greatest female marathon runner of all time? How fast does she think women can run the marathon?
In a very interesting speech at the Koitalel Samoei University College in Mosoriot, Nandi county of Kenya, Stacy Chesnutt, who is herself a 2:59:05 marathon runner, takes us briefly through the history of women marathon running, the great women marathon runners and why she thinks that the women’s marathon world record is very likely to fall at the London Marathon next month.
