    Elliot Giles: the 800m ace on training, racing and recovery

Having been involved in a serious motorcycle accident as a teenager, Giles feared he might never run again. Through a steely determination, unshakeable self-belief and some unorthodox training methods, he's become one of Team GB's breakout stars – and is on the front cover of this month's Runner's World magazine.

    We discuss ultra running in China, with James Poole

    The running world was shaken recently by the tragic news that 21 people died while taking part in an ultramarathon in China. The mountainous 100km race took place in high winds and freezing temperatures, and the runners are understood to have died from hypothermia. An investigation by the Chinese government is taking place, with many people suggesting the tragedy was the result “human error” as much as natural disaster. One UK runner who has raced in China more than most is James Poole. Having completed the Ultra Gobi, despite suffering from hypothermia halfway through, James has some key insights into what makes China an enticing but potentially hazardous destination for ultrarunners.

Sound quality could be better

Actually it could and should be much better. It’s too bad, because it’s a great podcast.

Great podcast 🏃‍♂️

This is helping me keep my mind in runner for more of the day than I can run. Perfect for a little motivation and a deep dive into the running passion.
