The legendary Steve Jones chats with Sophie Ryan to talk about how a young, wild boy running around in the hills of Wales became one of the most prolific names in the history of modern running.

Throughout Steve shares how instrumental his time in the Royal Air Force was in getting into running, from a day trip out to Barry Island during his cadet days to making the Air Force Cross Country team under the guidance of mentor Bob Wallace.

Cross country was another major factor of Steve’s career, charting his steady progression of success at the World Cross Country Championships throughout the years along with going from middle distance racing in 6 nations competition and Edmonton Commonwealth Games to the big city marathons that he’s best known for while racing without over-racing.

The first half of this conversation wraps up with almost running the Commonwealth Games marathon against rival Rob De Castella and how he came to starting in the 1983 Chicago Marathon.
