World Cross Country Preview Podcast #1: Boots on the Ground in Denmark, Kelsey Bruce Mania Track Talk Podcast

March 27, 2019 is in Denmark for the World Cross Country (XC) Championships and will have multiple podcasts this week.

In podcast #1, the LRC team is in beautiful Copenhagen before heading to Aarhus and we’re going heavy on the world XC coverage. LRC has a runner in the world’s greatest footrace: Kesley Bruce. We preview Kamworor’s chances of repeating and whether Obiri should be the heavy favorite. Plus Danish customs, the lack of European teams, but thankfully Jakob Ingegbrigtsen, and praise for Rojo.
