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 been promised for LOOOOONNNNNGGG time, but here it is at last, the lads' interview with Rat Race founder Jim Mee.

Jody and David dive into the world of Rat Race

  • The guys speak to Jim about the state of OCR and why so many races are disappearing - and what seems to be taken their place
  • Jim looks back at some of the crazier events (a few of which he hinted may be resurrected...)
  • David comes up with some suggestions for the headline act at Rat Race Dirty Weekend (and accidentally reveals the actual act)
  • Jim explains exactly why he feels the need to get naked at every race
  • and they preview the forthcoming Edinburgh Ultra (you know, a race with Edinburgh in the name that is actually based in Edinburgh - take note, Edinburgh Marathon)
