Ep 145 - London City Runners
David and Jody speak with the founder of London City Runners, Time Navin Jones and Kerry Jones. The London City Runners one of the biggest success stories in running participation.
Founder Tim Navin Jones explains how the club started from humble beginnings and has rapidly grown to become the largest free running club in London (that isn't affiliated to a retailer). But what really interests the Do-Badders is that London City Runners now have their own runners bar... er.. we mean clubhouse in Bermondsey.
Tim also discusses the issues that beset the club when it tried to launch its own running England Athletics affiliated running club causing its own separatist problem (just as BBR attempts to become an affiliated club!).
A little warning - there's a weird echo on David's side for about 10 minutes before the main interview.
Anyway, it's a great listen.
The Silk Cut is around 50 minutes with Jody and David chatting about cross country, #CFTB and running crews before.
