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 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...



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.
