    Paul is in Canada - and Rob finds himself in Scotland - so polymath, friend-of-the-show and Edinburgh Festival legend Mark Watson stands in (well, runs in) for Paul in a special Caledonian edition. Featuring,all the classic stuff: banter, gig reports, interactions with passers by, parenting, wordplay, and talk of running events completed and yet to come. Thank you Mark.

    The Race To The Stones

    The Race To The Stones

    The excitement is palpable on the start line, but how will Rob and Paul's Race To The Stones adventures play out? Featuring early starts, picturesque woodland, beautiful birds, walking up the hills, walking down the hills, friends old and new, drama predictable and unpredictable, a fine array of ridiculous voices, a lack of potatoes, some slapstick-based karma, a half-way humbling and a Running Commentary spin-off group.
    With your help, Rob's run raised over £3,000 for Parkinson's UK - thank you, thank you, thank you. We can't express how much we appreciate you sharing your running lives and your hard-earned cash with us. Namaste.

    Preparations and Predictions

    Just days before the Race To The Stones, Paul and Rob take a traditional turn around Clissold Park's soft surfaces and discuss their readiness - or lack thereof.

Chuffin great

I like listening to these two funny blokes puffing along whilst doing the washing up, or working out. Always nice to hear about the routes taken too. Cheers!
