Cragg trains sights on Tokyo

Amy Cragg is set to kick off her 2018 campaign at the Tokyo Marathon next month, the 34-year-old looking to carve a chunk off her personal best of 2:27:03.

Cragg, who memorably claimed the bronze medal in the women’s marathon at the IAAF World Championships in London, spoke to Erin Strout at Runner’s World earlier today and explained that she will hope to be competitive in her first Marathon Major of the year.

“You can’t ever go into a [World Marathon Major] and say you’re just going to run for time. It’s just impossible. Even if that’s the plan going into it, when you get in the race you’re going to be competitive. There are these amazing women in there. As much as I’d like to say that it’s just about the PR and running fast, there’s also going to be competition as well. When it comes down to it at the end, I’d pick a higher place finish over a faster time. But as of right now, going into it, it’s going to be about running fast.”
