The trail running podcast by mid-pack runners, for mid-pack runners. From parkrun to marathon to ultra, join us as we talk about running and talk to people while we run. We do it because we love it. And we guess you do too.
ROT #26 Shoes
It's coming up on Spring and what better way to put a spring in your step than to get a new pair of shoes. Or several new pairs. But we know how baffling it can be trying to work out which pair is best for you, so in this episode we break down the different elements of a running shoe and talk about what does, and doesn't, work for us. And we're (sort of) sorry for the awful punning...
ROT #25 All I want for Christmas is GU
IT’S CHRISTMAS!!! Not sure what you or the runner in your life might want Santa to bring? Never fear, because we’ve got 10 ideas that cover most budgets. But only if you’ve been good.
ROT #24 Run, eat, ROT, repeat
In this episode we explore the pros and cons of running a looped course as Antony takes on the Dartmoor Trail Running Challenge Ultra. It’s a bit loopy.
ROT #23 Becoming a better runner
With help from Green Man Ultra Winter 2020 women's winner Ellie Bates and the man, the beard, the legend that is Gary Robbins, we look at how a midpacker can become a better runner.
ROT #22 Crewing an ultra - The Arc of Attrition
In Jan 2020 we travelled to Cornwall for the Arc of Attrition. Thane was running, Antony was crewing and so we thought this was an opportunity to talk about an ultra from the perspective of the crew. This is NOT an episode on how to crew an ultra. Unless you want to learn how to forget your runner’s kit. Or how to exchange their supplies for other people’s biscuits.
ROT #21 Running 100 Miles - the Autumn 100
In this episode we talk about Antony’s running of the Autumn 100 and use it to examine what we think are some important things to consider when running a 100 mile race. Despite Antony’s best efforts, there is no poo in this episode.
