I’m no good with nicknames ,

An amazing community

I’ve been a long time listener and YouTube subscriber to the running channel and have always loved the content. Like most, I’ve not been proactive enough to leave a review. However, after running the London Marathon I met my wife and son at the Running Channel meet up. Andy had already taken the time to speak with them and they had met some of the other team members and all of them are a delight. When I hobbled in I also loved the effort the team had gone to and also found the whole team extremely friendly and welcoming. The community they are building is extremely impressive in addition to the fabulous content. It’s also important that they are all as friendly and enthusiastic as they seem on screen and behind the mic. Thankyou for everything you do. Chris

Stay on topic!

Really great running podcast and one that actually motivates me to get out and do a bit. Would be really good if you could stay on topic more. Perhaps less waffle at the start and get into the topic selection sooner. Questions are good - news section a bit boring.

Too much aimless chat

Started out enjoying this but after a while the common-room banter and a in-house jokes of the presenters began to grate on me. They clearly have a great time, but a little more focus on the subject matter would enhance the pod.
