Ep115 – The Flying Fickel - Bob Fickel on the eve of 300 marathons

September 5, 2022

Its not often you get to chat with people who have done 300 marathons, in fact, there’s only 8 in Australia! We catch up with Bob just two weeks out from completing his 300th which will be run at the Sydney Blackmores Marathon.

Bob’s been averaging 5-10 marathons a year since the 80’s, he shares some great stories including the Sydney to Melbourne Ultramarathon which he knocked over in 8 days averaging over 100km a day.

He chats about his race streaks, Canberra Marathon plus 30, City 2 Surf plus 40, Six Foot Track Marathon, 30 (not counting the one he missed the cut off by 4 seconds).

Bobs volunteered a lot of time to the running community over the past 40 years, including being President of Southside Masters for the past 20 years.

Bob chats about his future, he’s not ready to hang up the spikes just yet!

Enjoy this chat with a humble champion of the sport!
