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. 

Aug 5, 2018

Sometimes Jody and David find themselves without a guest. They sit and wait diligently on Skype but the guest is a no-show.

(It's usually because they're realised at the last minute what the show is about and are running for the hills. Pretty fair, we reckon.)

So the chaps use this time to catch-up on what's been going on in the world of BBR and general weirdness.

In this episode, you'll hear about:

  • The unbearable awfulness/greatness of running with your top off 
  • Why Jody and David can't actually remember how long they've been podcasting for
  • Why the OCR European Champs may have been a touch too hard this year and why that's bad
  • How Killian Jornet destroyed the Bob Graham Round (in a good and bad way)
  • Some cycling and why it's bad (obvs)
  • The brand new BBR Instagram account (it's ace, look it up)
  • An explosive race David comes up with that NO-ONE will ever want to run
  • David and Jody review some of their reviews on iTunes (they now have a new favourite one star review)

PLUS this episode features perhaps the greatest STING yet right at the start (and yes, that IS Brian Blessed).

Sorry Fi, there's no Silk Cut on this episode. Best skip it and come back next week...
