The Bad Boy Running Podcast

Running is great, so why aren't the podcasts? Bad Boy Running is a podcast for runners (boys AND girls!) 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 the technical.

If high-spirited adventure and expecting the unexpected is your thing, then you're going to love this two-part episode on Bad Boy Running.

We speak to running adventurer Alfie Pierce-Higgins about his many and varied challenges, many of which he has set himself.

Listen to this episode and you'll discover:

  • How Alfie prepped to run the Ultra Trail of the Gobi in China
  • How the Chinese ultrarunning scene is just a bit different from what we're used to
  • How Alfie became a celebrity in China after his Gobi challenge finish (and how you can, too)
  • Exactly how Alfie prepared for such an awesome challenge
  • How Alfie managed to get the Jordanian government to sponsor his run across Jordan
  • Why he loves running without the racing

This is a two-parter so watch out for the second part of the episode out 24 hours after this episode.

If you want to get straight to Alfie and not listen to us, the Silk Cut is at 25 minutes.
