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.

In this episode, David talks to Do-Badder Allie Bailey on her recent return from running the route of the Mongolia 100 - set to launch next year.

She explains exactly what went down when a handful of Do-Badders (and G-Law) did when they raced 100 miles across a frozen lake in Mongolia.

Allie reveals:

  • How the hell she got roped into doing it in the first place
  • The extremely limited diet of a Mongolia ultrarunner
  • Why you need to leave the wood burner in your yurt the hell alone if you don't want to end up naked in the middle of a frozen lake trying to cool down
  • The best strategy to get you from one side of the lake to the other
  • Why you WILL probably die if you run this race if you don't take it seriously and trying winging it like most Brits at multi-day events (yep, we're looking at you again MdS)
  • What the great and good of Mongolian government thought when they enjoyed an evening of vodka and more vodka with the Do-Badders

And David also takes this opportunity to introduce Allie as BBR's new roving interviewer/interviewee (he's not quite sure which...).


Even with the new level of maturity Allie brings to the podcast, Jody and David still try to pre-empt this by talking absolute rubbish before and after the interview.

The Silk Cut on this episode is around 55 minutes (woooooaaahhhh!)
