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. 

Jun 19, 2020

Jody speaks with Tony Matesi, former director of Spartan Endurance and author of The Legend Of The Death Race, an account of his three years trying to conquer the event.

Tony has a really interesting story from a family of circus performers who became a competitive cheerleader and then moved into obstacle course racing, and eventually ultras.

In this episode, he explains what attracted him about his first Death Race, how he prepared, what the race is like and why he came back three times before he felt he conquered it.

He also reveals his latest project to record stories of endurance athletes.
