    Haroon Mota talks running 260km during Ramadan

    Haroon Mota talks running 260km during Ramadan

    Fasted running has become a ‘buzzword’ among runners, but Haroon Mota took the term to a new level when he ran 260km during the month of Ramadan. In doing so, he raised £50,000 for the Penny Appeal. We spoke to him about this amazing feat and how he started running as a bucket list thing to do, how it helped him when his dad sadly passed away and how he hopes to encourage more members of the BAME community to take up running.


    We also talk tech with Kieran Alger, who questions whether we're already paying for Strava with our data and believes there MIGHT be a very nerdy solution to all those random and inaccurate runs when your GPS lets you down.

    What is fascia, and why is it important to runners?

    Our guest this week has been described as ‘the Indiana Jones of running’. Instead of hunting for ancient artifacts, however, Shane Benzie has been helping people rediscover the lost art of running. He’s the world expert in something called fascia – the elastic webbing that encases our muscles. Shane has been working with a host of world-class athletes to help them tap into this incredible energy source. For more on Shane's work, visit runningreborn.co.uk
