Description

Running is great, so why aren't the podcasts? Bad Boy Running is a podcast for runners who are bored of the dull and dry podcasts currently on offer. Hosted by friends Jody Raynsford and David Hellard, both running journalists, bloggers and lovable idiots, the show features the conversations they'd have in the pub focusing as much on the camaraderie and social side of the sport as well as the technical. Whether you're a 5k, 10k, half marathon, marathon runner or ultramarathon runner, you'll find something in here to be offended by. Bad Boy Guarantee.

Ep 160 - Jason McCardle on hosting crazy race ideas
Sussex Trail Events has built a bit of a reputation for putting on races that well... are a bit unusual. As well as it’s roster of trail marathons (read muddy riverside marathons) and the Downslink Ultra, the company has hosted a number of one-off races most would be mad to complete including the Car Park Marathon (the value is in the name but this was originally invented by BBR, btw), The Pier Marathon - out and back up Southend's Mile long pier and a marathon which was laps around the Amex Stadium. David and Jody talk to RD Jason McCardle about what it takes to put on races as well as some of the inside goings-on between RDs. Enjoy!

Ep 159 - Carole Armitage on running and chocolate
Carole Armitage is a runner and chocolate pioneering looking to prove the link between performance and chocolate.  And that's exactly the kind of thinking we like.

There's also some classic Bants early on. [LAST CHANCE] COMPETITION TIME! WIN A TRAIL RUNNING HOLIDAY FOR TWO!

Ep 158 - Jerry Odlin on running clubs
This week is a little bit special as David brings on his running club's director from Heathside, Jerry Odlin. Jerry has been there and done it in terms of running clubs and lifts the lid on what goes on behind the scenes of one of London's popular running clubs, how the make-up of running clubs has changed, the challenges faced by clubs and generally how running has changed. It's a fascinating view from Jerry and well worth a listen as BBR is on the verge of launching its own running club (if England Athletics don't boot BBR out before we've begun...) Plus, there's the usual chat beforehand. Mainly inane, rarely valuable. [LAST CHANCE] COMPETITION TIME! WIN A TRAIL RUNNING HOLIDAY FOR TWO!

Ep 157 - Professor Andrew Jones on runner's physiology
What Andrew Jones doesn't know about the human body and running isn't worth knowing. No other person knows the capability and capacity of Paula Radcliffe in her prime. Andy supervised the measurement and monitoring of Radcliffe's running efficiency and aerobic capacity for more than a decade and knows in detail what makes the difference. Andy has also been at the forefront of British sport for decades having consulted UK Athletics, various sporting bodies and major sporting brands such as Gatorade and Nike. And (almost most) famously, Andy is the man behind the beetroot running thing. (His twitter handle is even @AndyBeetroot).  Now he shares his knowledge with the Do-Badders and BOY is this a great episode. (We admit, it wasn't long enough - we're definitely getting him back on.) Enjoy!   COMPETITION TIME! WIN A TRAIL RUNNING HOLIDAY FOR TWO! Seriously, we're not kidding. Listen out in this episode right from the start for the instructions to win a holiday for two trail running in Spain. Imagine that? Running when it's not tipping it down.

Ep 156 - James Poole on the Hong Kong Four Trails Ultra
If there's a big name ultra, James Poole has most likely done it.  In this episode, Jody and David speak to James about his many races and, specifically, the epic Hong Kong Four Trails Ultra which kind of looks insane (the race had been run by the time of publication... but we won't tell you what happened). James is also founder of the Advent Running running community and shares his experience running this. He also shares some crazy stories from his many adventures including The Ultra Gobi and a brilliant story about hallucinations. Oh AND... COMPETITION TIME! WIN A TRAIL RUNNING HOLIDAY FOR TWO!

Ep 154 - Nicky Spinks on Double Bob Graham and fell running
There aren't many runners who have the pedigree in long distance racing as Nicky Spinks. Farmer by day, Nicky is an outstanding fell runner and has completed doubles of the UK's most difficult rounds, including double Bob Graham (England), double Paddy Buckley Round (Wales) and the double Ramsey Round (Scotland). And that's not even mentioning the slew of races including UTMB, Dragon's Back, Grand Raid Pyrenees and Grand Race Reunion. In short, she's an ultrarunning badass... and she's speaking with BBR.
