Essential listening.

Purple sign banter guaranteed.

j3lb3ll ,

Friendly and fun

A celebration of all types of running from park run to ultras, in a warm and welcoming manner. Also tackles head on issues such as mental health which are so close to many runners’ hearts.

mush'room ,

Brilliant - You won’t regret a listen!

I discovered the What The Fartlek podcast via an Instagram post by other runners. It’s a great blend of humour and topical discussions around real runner stories such as mental health, runners safety, and the environment.
