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. 

Nov 8, 2019

Frank Ruona has been the San Quentin 1000 Mile Club’s volunteer head coach since 2005. The volunteer coaches, under the leadership of USA Track and Field-certified Frank, run the workouts and competitions for inmates in the infamous prison.

In this episode Jody and David speak to Frank and discover more about running life behind bars and how the club was formed.

As the idea of running as a form of rehabilitation spreads, Frank assists other prisons in creating their own long-distance running clubs. The goal is to provide motivated inmates with the opportunity to experience the physical and mental rewards that running, particularly long-distance running, can provide. 

Enjoy!
