Ricky Walden, who defends his Shanghai Masters title next week, will switch sports to run the New York marathon on November 1.
"I’ve been doing a lot of running because it gives me discipline outside snooker, and it improves my fitness,” Walden said.
“It can only help my game, especially in the long matches, and that will give me more chances to win trophies. I’ve done a couple of half marathons before but never a full one. It could finish me off.”
Good luck to Ricky.
I did a marathon once, although it's known as snickers now.
