What are some good strength exercises for marathon runners?

I, like most runners, tend to focus more on training and forget that some strength exercises are required to reach your performance peak.

To me core training is very central. Your core muscles includes all the main muscle groups in you torso and increasing the strength of these will not only help with your running but also with all sorts of back problems if you have a desk job like me. See about.com for a pretty good introduction to core training. Very few core exercises requires any equipment.
