Marathon2500, a project of the Reading Odyssey, held its fifth lecture today, Marathon and the Moderns, featuring ultra-marathoner Dean Karnazes and Professor Paul Cartledge.
As with all the Marathon2500 lectures, there’s a podcast available of the talk. This is a large file so you may want to download it and play it locally (otherwise, you may find it skips and jumps depending on the speed of your Internet connection).
The next lecture in the Marathon2500 series is War and Sports with Professor Thomas Scanlon.
Information and free registration for this global lecture (via phone, Skype and web) is available here:
