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.

This is the second part of the episode where David interviews Will Rial, international athlete manager for sports management agency, Run-Fast.

If you've not listened to the first episode, we'd suggest you go back and listen to that first before this one.

The discussion continues with David discussing with Will:

  • How sports management agencies draft in the right type of runners
  • How they manage runners to maximise the money they get from races
  • What's the purpose of different types of bonuses and fees
  • How the agency selects the different races and picks who challenges who
  • What the effect is on the racers and their families when they're under contract
  • Why even the big runners still keep it real

The Silk Cut on the second part is just 5 minutes.
