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. 

Apr 12, 2018

The guys speak with former Running Bug head of content Rhalou Allerhand (at the time of the podcast. Rhalou's now back at Runner's World) about running journalism, what people want to read about and some weird races you not have heard of.

When we say this episode is surprising, we REALLY mean it.

Right away the conversation takes a turn Jody and David never expected and never recovers (fortunately). This is proper Do-Badder territory.

In this episode discover:

  • The origins of a naked race through a zoo (and the right outfit to wear. Oddly...)
  • How Rhalou ended up in the world of running journalism via a very surprising route (and how that's affected what she's covered)
  • Exactly what online readers want to read about (this will surprise you)
  • Why you need a baby goat to succeed in online journalism
  • The crazy races Rhalou has participated in (and why you may want to avoid them)
  • Why you should never accept the advances of old ladies wandering around forests
  • Why being good at running isn't a prerequisite for writing great content
  • How to stay enthusiastic about the subject you're writing about (i.e. how to keep falling in love with running over and over again)

The Silk Cut is at 36 mins if you want to avoid hearing Jody make a very, very damaging admission involving cycling...
