Love this show!

I’ve been listening for a couple of years and I absolutely love this show. Especially like the race preview and recap episodes, which help me catch up with races I’ve missed the live coverage for. Finn also asks such different and interesting questions to his guests.

Great listening for a long run 😀

Brilliant podcast, interesting interviews and excellent pre race speculation/post race analysis. I love the Long Run Archives!

The best ultrarunning podcast there is

This is the podcast that’s inspired me to enter my first ultras. Finn has an exceptional interviewing style - he makes you feel like you’re in his lounge, listening to two friends chat. He is curious and asks the questions that always find the story his guests need to tell. A completely unpretentious yet comprehensive exploration of exactly what this sport is about. Makes you want to head for the hills in the best possible way.
