    Apologies for the audio during the interview. Sarah's mic was really quiet.

    Episode 58 - Eddie and Gary

    Run to the Hills - Episode 58 - Eddie and Gary - UTMJ Podium Finish and the 2021 London Marathon

    We thought for a change Eddie and Gary would share their recent race experience. Build up, race and recovery. Both Eddie and Gary had a great day, but two very different approaches to racing. Two very different events too. Gary was racing the clock at the 2021 Virgin London Marathon and Eddie raced to a podium finish at the 2021 Ultra Trail Des Montagnes Jura.

    Apologies - Gary did not do three Covid tests, but he did have to show a negative result three times.

    Episode 57 - Ryk Downes - Punk Panther

    Episode 57 - Ryk Downes - Punk Panther

    Run to the Hills - Episode 57 - Ryk Downes Punk Panther

    Ryk Downes, who in his teenage years was a top Orienteer before a running hiatus of over 20 years. This break from running ended when he ran the 2003 London Marathon as the Punk Panther. Since then Ryk has completed many Marathons, Ultra Marathons and other long distance challenges. 
    In January 2016 Ryk collapsed and ‘died’ from a hereditary heart condition. He was thankfully revived at the scene by passers-by by using a defibrillator and performing CPR.
    A subsequent triple heart bypass in February 2016 saw him return to running in the Leeds Half Marathon three months later. Ryk then returned to ultra-distance running with the Hardmoors 60 in September 2016.
    Whilst recovering from his heart attack Ryk was looking for Ultra Marathons near to home. Finding few and wanting to give something back to the sport he has launched the Punk Panther Series from Otley. He is currently writing a book about his running experiences and the road to recovery and how for many people he has become an inspiration.

    Episode 56 - Rob Bourne - LGBT Ultra Runner & Adventurer

    Episode 56 - Rob Bourne - LGBT Ultra Runner & Adventurer

    Episode 56 - Rob Bourne - LGBT Ultra Runner & Adventurer

    Rob is a self-professed LGBT ultra runner and adventurer. Rob attempted the first unsupported run along the Cape Wrath Trail. He didn’t quite tick the unsupported box, but was super happy to have still completed it in 5 and a half days with 12kgs on my back. This also briefly set a new supported FKT on the trail.
    Rob used the attempt to try and drive as much awareness for LGBT inclusion as possible. I’d love to continue this, and I was wondering if your audience would be interested in hearing the story of the trip, my experiences as a gay ultra runner and my motivations for speaking out?
    Follow Rob over on Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/robbourne/?hl=en

You guys

Hi guys, the banter between you two is mint. You get some really cool guest on. Gary can’t talk enough about the BGR for me, love it. hopefully I’ll do it next year and I can’t wait for Eddie’s UTMB journey, I entered in 2018 but I’ve never had enough points to enter again. Keep up the great work. ❤️

Living the dream

Hi Eddie and Gary,
Fab podcast. I listened to this episode on the final climb of the CCC to tête aux vents on Friday night - kept me going in the dark, and made me smile when you wondered if anyone was listening on the course!
Love the mix of guests and your take on the world. Your voices transport me back to the late nineties in the North East where Eddie will remember I was not a fan of “fitness” sessions - how times have changed.
Thanks so much
Sarah Munday
