They guys open with how much (or little) running they've both been doing and talk about upcoming races. We then find out what David's old school reports said about his sporting capabilities.

The guys then bring in Gary from Six Physio to talk about the work they do and answer some Do-Badder questions. Just to be clear, he also answers some sensible, not Do-Badder questions which (unfortunately) makes this another incredibly informative episode. 

David then tells Jody how much hashing he's going to be doing before the Myanmar Marathon.

Jody and David start out strong by discussing 'summiting' which is a new word to be added to the Bad Boy Running Dictionary. They then talk about the rise of the kilometre and newer races which cover a more non-standard racing distance. 

This week's big philosophical question is why is the 1500m race not a mile? After puzzling over that the guys focus on this episode's main topic - the Red Bull Steeplechase! How did David get on? Did he finish? Did he place? Did he do it legally? Well listen to find out.

Today's podcast is filled with stories from epic ultrarunner Susie Chan!

She tells us plenty of running stories involving jungles, deserts, long long times and long long distances. Susie also gives us an insight into her running goals and races over the next few months.

Hello Do-Badders! 

On today's Podcast Jody and David will open in a way which sounds on topic and then veer wildly, wildly off course for the first part discussing some very important questions.

Let's just say if you want to know what 'Peeping Mo' is a new slang term for then the intro to this Podcast will be exceptionally important to you.

The discussion then falls quickly onto David's Beerathon where they tease potential new additions before falling back on topic with David's Man vs Lake's course review. 

How to deal with downhill sections of a course provides an unusually useful element to this podcast until they stumble upon some more Strava segment revelations, urging Do-Badders to do the same.

Also in this Podcast they respond to a letter! Sent to letters@badboyrunning.com 

You can also follow us on Twitter, David is @davidhellard and Jody is @UltrarunnerJody and use the hashtag #badboyrunning.

Hello Do-Badders!

Today Jody and David are joined by Robbie Britton, the UK's top 24 hour racer and decorated ultrarunner (yes, that's right, even more decorated than Jody AND David).

In this podcast they talk a little bit about Robbie's achievements, but they also ask his opinion on whether cheating is ever acceptable. 

Also keep your ears peeled for the story that David tells about a recent training experience in another country.

It's.. well.. let's just say it's one to listen out for.

Hello Do-Badders!

In this week's episode we catch up with the guys and what they've been up to. 

There's lots of discussion about Doug the Beard which mainly focuses on his Beard but does sometimes stray onto his offer of a race for Jody. 

A majority of this episode centres around David giving Jody advice for Jody's first Obstacle Course race. That obstacle course race is unlikely to be a Tough Mudder or Spartan but it could be anything from a Dirty Dozen to Judgement Day to Survival of the Fittest to Wolf Run to a Nuts Challenge. Maybe. Could be anything. 

Anyway, after giving some genuinely useful advice the guys turn their attention to apologies for factual errors and apologies for past Strava accidental racism which David has since effectively rebranded to an incredible name.

Once you're done listening join the discussion on the Facebook Group! Simply search Bad Boy Running Podcast and click join and we'll add you from there. Or alternatively you could email any points for discussion or questions to letters@badboyrunning.com

Hello Do-Badders!


Today Jody and David discuss everything that has been going on on the Facebook Group and also branch out into other news articles they've picked up over the last couple of weeks.

We hear from Jody's wife, Libby, about her recent running adventures.

There's news of a free entry for a Do-Badder place for the Red Bull Steeple Chase!

Simply join the Bad Boy Running Podcast Facebook Group and suggest what you would do at the event which would make your race spectacularly Bad Boy.

Welcome back Do-badders! This week’s episode is an array of things but the main point for discussion will be the Beer Lovers' Marathon. 

The guys start by calling for ideas for an innovative new theme song. Things then move on to talk of a t-shirt update, a request for race calendar suggestions, and David's rather short list of 'sponsors'.

The rest of the Podcast obviously includes vivid descriptions of the Beer Lovers' Marathon highlights such as David's unusually slow race time and over-indulgence (if there is such a thing) of Belgian's finest brews.

Welcome Do-badders! This week’s episode is all about KIT! Well. Actually Jody and David do get rather sidetracked. So you could say most of it is about kit. Definitely over 40% anyway…

  • Watches are seen as a must by David
  • Shorts are seen as optional by David
  • Gel packs are portrayed as both a hinderance and a help
  • David reveals how a Dry Robe is not only a great piece of running kit, but also an incredible social tool
