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 150 - The 150th Episode
THEY MADE IT! [Sounds of cheers, roaring crowds, champagne corks popping] The landmark of 150 episodes has been reached. They didn't know how they would do it. They didn't know if it was possible. But for all the jokes back in 2015 when the podcast started... this is it: Episode 150. For this episode, Jody and David celebrate, reminisce and reflect on what has happened to the podcast over the years since launch... ... and get a little help from some of the Do-Badders and the podcast's previous guests who record their own messages of congratulations (or in Huw Brassington's case an advert for his next speaking event! Amazing!) It's a cracker. (But not if this is your first listen to BBR, because it's impenetrable...) Enjoy!

Ep 150 - The 150th Episode

Ep 147 - Courtney Dauwalter on running Big's Backyard Ultra
Courtney Dauwalter has one of the most impressive running resumes having completed and won a ton of the world's best-known (and toughest) ultramarathons, including MOAB 240 outright and fastest woman at Western States 100 last year. But it's a different race that Jody and David explore with Courtney - Big's Backyard Ultra, a brutal race from the evil mind of Barklay Marathon's Laz. It's a race, not against time or distance but until the last person is standing around a 4 mile loop for as long as you can until the last person is left standing. Seriously, this sounds awful/brilliant and Courtney is great. Enjoy! If you enjoyed this episode please SUBSCRIBE to get every episode delivered to you before everyone else. Join the conversation!

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. Enjoy! Enjoy!

Ep 143 - Ian McNamara on running marathons with NO training
Grit, strength, determination and ignorance... ... all qualities we admire and are essential when running your first marathon. But what if you ran your first marathon without ANY training at NIGHT and with a SIX HOUR cut-off (oh, and you'd been drinking all day...)? Sounds ridiculous, right? Well, that's exactly what Ian McNamara did and his story of losing a bet and running his first marathon on no training made it to the pages of UNILAD. Here's the story, if you didn't see it: https://www.unilad.co.uk/video/guy-completes-entire-marathon-without-training-as-punishment-for-losing-fantasy-football/ We'll level with you. Ian is a hero for our times, and we discover just how ridiculous this challenge was (and how funny) during the chat. Enjoy! Enjoy!
