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 episode marks an important moment in the history of Bad Boy Running - it's the first time EVER the whole BBR team have recorded together and WITH their guest.

This week we speak with Andy Palmer, race director of acclaimed White Star Running, which is renowned for its strong community and the amount of personality in its races.

In this episode we discuss:

  • Why David consistently fails to remember people's names
  • What makes a great race (and why certain Scotland-based races just don't hit the mark)
  • How to build a strong community around a race
  • The story behind the White Star name and why the race is so influenced by Mexican culture
  • How to keep runners coming back (and talking about your races)
  • The invention of the word "sminge"
  • Plus much more
  • The Silk Cut on this is just a few minutes of the intro
