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.

Thabang Madiba is one inspirational guy.

From a deprived township, his path into trail running wasn't exactly easy. Living no-one nears mountains, Thabang had to - and still does - cycle miles and miles to get to trail races.

And then he wins them. A lot of them.

Thabang is a multiple champion of South African trails and - in the predominantly white trail running community - he has dominated and became the first black athlete to represent South Africa in trail running.

In this episode, Jody and David speak to Thabang about his path to trail running and the South African trail running scene.
