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.

It's finally here!

The episode so many have been waiting for - the two-part interview with Barkley Marathon founder and race director Laz Lake, aka Gary Cantrell.

In this episode you'll discover:

  • How some Barkley competitors have tried to cheat in previous editions
  • Exactly what happens when you attempt to go through the notoriously opaque entry process
  • The future of Barkley and his plans for the race when he retires from being a race director
  • His own surprising take on running with Rob Young on his controversial world record attempt running across America
  • The BIG secret about the No.1 vest that had long bamboozled Barkley runners
  • His real views on when we'll see a female winner at Barkley and who he really wants to enter the race, as he believes she has the best chance
  • Laz’s secret nutritional weapon for surviving his transcontinental trek across the US

Before Laz, Jody and David catch up and discuss the Snowshoe World Championships and the difficulty of running in snowshoes with any snow or shoes...

For those who want less of Jody and David and more of Laz, the Silk Cut is around the 30 minute mark.
