Conversations and stories from the culture of running by the TEMPO Journal team.
The icing on the cake with Oliver Hoare
This episode guest host Sean Whipp crosses to Boulder, Colorado and catches up with On Athletic Club's Ollie Hoare.
Launceston calling with Jack Rayner
For the last episode in season two, we’re joined by the cult hero Jack Rayner. Jack is probably best known for his 2:11:06 marathon on debut in London 2019, but this week we’re talking about the Launceston Running Festival coming up this weekend.
240 kilometres with Michaela McDonald
This week on the show Riley speaks to Sydney based ultrarunner Michaela McDonald, ahead of this week’s ‘Coast 2 Kosci’ – a 240km ultramarathon finishing at Mt Kosciuzsko.
Distance runners are happy with Camille Buscomb
We head across the ditch this week to speak with New Zealand's 11-time national champion, Camille Buscomb.
Summer preview with Sean Whipp
We’re rolling out a massive summer preview today on Running Things with one of the finest athletics minds in Australia: Sean Whipp. Sean joins us to run through all the must-see events on the calendar over the next couple of months – there’s a stack of events in Australia and a few notable races overseas.
This is the moment with Jaryd Clifford
Riley is joined on the show today by Paralympic star Jaryd Clifford. Jaryd competes in the T12 (vision impaired) classification in the 1500m and 5000m – where he is the world champion in both (oh, and he holds the world record in the 1500m).
Jaryd chats with us from Canberra, where he relocated as lockdowns came into effect in Melbourne in July. In Canberra Jaryd has the opportunity to train with his coach, Dr Philo Saunders and his squad – including his guide Tim Logan. The athlete-guide relationship is critically important to Jaryd, and he speaks at length about the elements that have to go right for the partnership to work – in a race the athlete and guide are connected by a 30cm long tether – which is a lot shorter than it sounds!
Jaryd also talks about his plans for 2021 and beyond – including a potential 1500m, 5000m, and marathon triple in the 2024 games. Mind blowing.
Big ups to the Tempo crew
Riley does a great job coaxing the stories out of these athletes!
