Here's Part 2 of the interview with Karl Bushby. If you've not listened to Ep 256, we recommend going back and starting there so this episode makes sense.
Karl Bushby had a goal. It was to set out to walk around the world on foot. His plan was to take him from the bottom of South America all the way back to the UK via the Baring Straits (that had never been crossed on foot successfully since, well, the last Ice Age!).To say the journey has been epic is an understatement. He set off on his journey 20 years ago and through challenging circumstances,  problems at borders and a continuing drive to achieve what many thought was impossible, he's still at it. Speaking from a cafe with a very loud smoothie machine, Karl explains to Jody and David how his journey has looked so far and what his reasons were for doing it the way he has done it.Enjoy!If you enjoyed this episode please SUBSCRIBE to get every episode delivered to you before everyone else.Join the conversation!

Laz is back and this time he's talking Big's Backyard and virtual races... something we didn't think we'd be speaking with Laz about a year ago!It's been a while since Jody and David spoke to Laz (aka Gary Cantrell) about the Barkley Marathons (if you've not listened, we suggest going back and listening to this first) and since then we'd had the National Running Show where Laz was star of the show and a global pandemic.As a result, Laz's usual roster of races hasn't gone ahead... but that has helped explode the popularity of the Big's Backyard race format and another huge virtual race run by Laz - The Great Virtual Race Across Tennessee. Jody and David discuss these with Laz.Laz also gives his view on the controversy surrounding the banning of BLM and political posts in the Facebook group.Oh, and a bit of a disclaimer - there was a bad lag which made it difficult for the conversation to flow as freely as intended.Enjoy!If you enjoyed this episode please SUBSCRIBE to get every episode delivered to you before everyone else.Join the conversation!

Not every big city marathon can be as environmentally friendly as Edinburgh Marathon by getting rid of ALL water bottles from the course (snigger), but what can marathon directors and organisers do to make their races more sustainable.In this episode, Jody and David quiz London Marathon head of sustainability Megan Hunt to find out more about the race's plans to lead the way in reducing the footprint of the race, its report on areas to focus on and where she sees the future of big city races in terms of making these more sustainable.Oh, and the guys talk about the all-important loser fleece.Enjoy!If you enjoyed this episode please SUBSCRIBE to get every episode delivered to you before everyone else.Join the conversation!

It's not often you wake up one day and think "I know what I'll do next... I'll run across the US!", but that's pretty much how Ashley Schneider started on her journey that has seen her cross the US multiple times. Quitting her job on a cruise ship and moving back to Wisconsin to plan, Ashley knew she wanted to run across the US in aid of raising money to support multiple sclerosis charities, a disease that affected her mother. Little did she realise that the whole first run across the States would result in the organisation that is today MS Run The US, that takes hundreds of ordinary runners and allows them to join in an epic journey.Jody and David speak with Ashley about the moment of her epiphany, how she prepared for that first race and the challenge of raising money and co-ordinating runners from all across the US. Enjoy!If you enjoyed this episode please SUBSCRIBE to get every episode delivered to you before everyone else.Join the conversation!

Here's Part 2 of the two-part interview with Yuliya Stepanova and Vitaly Stepanov. If you've not listened to Part 1, head back to episode 249 for the first half of the interview.Yuliya is a middle-distance runner who competed for Russia at the 2012 London Olympics and 2016 Rio Olympics. She became an informant for WADA. Vitaly worked for the Russian Anti-Doping Agency. Together they exposed the full extent of the state-sponsored doping programme that eventually led to Russia's exclusion at the Olympics and their fleeing to the US to avoid repercussions.With the Russian ban recently lifted by CAS, the issue of doping is again back in the picture. That's why Jody and David spoke with Yuliya and Vitaly about how they went from being a part of the system to attempting to bring it down, the effect it has had on their life and what their plans are for the future.Enjoy!If you enjoyed this episode please SUBSCRIBE to get every episode delivered to you before everyone else.Join the conversation!

Connie Allen is a former Hasidic Jewish woman who was born into an ultra-orthodox Jewish family in Brooklyn, New York and raised in the Satmar sect of Judaism.  At 21, Connie escaped the community and a marriage she no longer wanted part of and took her young son to start a new life in a society she barely knew. During this period she found exercise and running - young women in her former community were prevented from doing any physical exercise - and found this a source of strength. Now, Connie regularly competes in marathons and ultras and her story is finally being told. In this episode, Jody and David speak to Connie about her strict upbringing, the experiences that led to her deciding to leave the community, how she finally began the process and how fitness and running gave her a focus. This is a fascinating episode with Connie who is amazingly open about her experience.  Enjoy! If you enjoyed this episode please SUBSCRIBE to get every episode delivered to you before everyone else.

Marilyn Okoro's experience of being denied further funding to continue her athletics career really is a thing of shame. That's why Jody and David invite her onto the podcast to talk about her experience and uncover just how closed the system really is. Now a vocal advocate for athletes, Marilyn enjoyed success on the track finishing third in the 800 metres at the 2007 and 2008 IAAF World Athletics Final and bronze in the 4 x 400 metres relay at the 2007 World Champs. She is a holder of an Olympic bronze medal for the 4 x 400 metres relay after two teams that finished ahead of them in the 2008 Beijing Olympics were disqualified for doping and they were retrospectively handed the medal... EIGHT years later! (No prizes for guessing that one of the disqualified teams was Russia - the other was Belarussia). In this episode, Marilyn talks about her path into the sport and the issues she faced working with UK Athletics and a hierarchy who insisted she did things their way. This is a really eye-opening episode that gives you an insight into the way athletes are treated by the funding bodies who have the power to make or break careers based on sometimes quite oblique criteria.

Who was the first athlete to retain their Olympic gold medal title in the 100 metres? If you thought it was Carl Lewis, you're WRONG. If you're wrong, we don't blame you because it's as though Wyomia Tyus's record has been overlooked when writing the history of Olympic gold medal success. In this episode, Jody and David speak with former US Olympic athlete Wyomia about her mission to tell her story and the incredible story of the Tigerbelle track team that dominated women's athletics over this period. Wyomia goes right back to her beginnings to recall how she made it to Olympic level, holding the world record in the 100 metres and her history-defining feats of winning the 100-metre gold in 1964 and 1968.  Wyomia's story is incredible.

Three years in the making, Run is a documentary film centred around the personalities and stories in The Athlete Refugee team. Directed by Richard Bullock, the film originally started off a short segment about the world refugee running team and snowballed into a full-length documentary as the story twisted and turned its way towards the Olympics. During the process, Richard discovered the challenges facing displaced people and how running can change their fortunes and bringing people together (as well as its limitations). In this episode Jody and David speak to Richard about the athletes and stories involved and what has become of the team since the Olympics was postponed due to coronavirus. Enjoy!

When you go to your doctor with a serious knee and ligament injury sustained while playing your sport of choice, football, you'd expect their advice to be "rest up, relax and stay off it". What you wouldn't expect is to be told "try running on some mountainous trails and see how it goes..." But that's exactly what happened to Pau Cappell when his sporting career looking under jeopardy at a young age. Once he hit those trails the knee injury disappeared and his love of trails began.  And what a career he's had culminating most recently in his victory at the UTMB in 2019. While 2020 was somewhat disrupted, he attempted to break the UTMB record solo as part of a North Face attempt. In this episode, Jody and David speak to Pau about this attempt, his early running life and go into detail about his incredibly detailed race plans. ** Want 15% off your next food order ** This episode is sponsored by Food Hub, supporting independent local restaurants and takeaways.

Gary House is one funny chap. He also happens to be an accomplished ultra runner and a great coach through his Run Strong community. Fortunately, we’ve tricked him into becoming an official coach for the Bad Boy Running Club (BBRC) and, in this bonus episode, Allie and David introduce him to the community. He also delivers a ton of training advice such as: Why you’re a shit runner (and why that’s ok…) What you need to look out for when taking coaching advice from influencers on Instagram Why more time on your feet isn’t always the right approach How to prepare yourself mentally for any distance or level of race Why you need to stop comparing yourself to others (and a few strategies to avoid this) Why you need to forget about the latest kit and focus on this other - more important - part of your running instead Why strength sessions can be your best friend (and why you ALWAYS have time) David weirdly asks for strength exercises using babies - Gary answers (reluctantly) Gary reveals the worst person he’s EVER coached (the police and an amorous husband were involved!) And Gary leaves David and Allie speechless when he reveals what he believes to be the product that’s the biggest rip off in running (oo-er!) You can join the Bad Boy Running Club and get all the benefit of Gary's expertise, as well as hang out with the low life and villainy that current makes up the membership.

Most ultrarunners are content to knock out a few big races each year. Some even go for the accolade of a quartet of 100 milers in something like the Centurion Grand Slam.

In this episode filled with insight and stories (unusual, we know), Walter explains his prep, the best and worst races he ran and what he plans to do next. Enjoy!
