Comedians Paul Tonkinson and Rob Deering talk about life and comedy - but mainly running. Whilst running.

    Ed Gamble

    Ed Gamble

    Rob is joined by superstar comedian and all-round good guy Ed Gamble - and deserted by a poorly Paul - on a picturesque turn around Walthamstow and Hackney Marshes. Featuring Ed’s marathon memories and training tips, and an insight into all the exciting things - weddings, international trips - you can do with your Spring if you’re NOT marathon training. Meanwhile Rob talks films and parkruns, for a change.
