    TRC MEETS - From Being Paralysed To Running A World Record At London Marathon!

    The Running Channel Meets is where we talk to real runners with incredible stories. Each episode we speak with people who inspire us to run, and give our guests an opportunity to tell their stories, often for the first time.
    In this episode we chat with Ant Bryan. After being left paralysed at age 6 from a stroke, Ant didn’t picture sport in his future, but he has spent many years proving people wrong and going further than he thought he ever could. He has achieved gold medals for running as a ParaAthlete and in 2024 he set out to complete the London Marathon and set a Guinness World Record. We spoke with Ant before London Marathon to learn more about how he had found training and what challenges he was facing preparing to run a marathon for the first time.

Shortage of fresh air lately ,

My favorite Podcast!

Not only do the hosts motivate me to improve and set higher goals for myself, but they keep me laughing while providing me with valuable tips and information. I loooove the banter so please don’t
ever turn into just another boring channel that I put on to fall asleep! Thank you for sharing your wisdom with us all!

Hilarous podcast!

This is a worthy competitor to The Drop! Its just friends talking who happen to be runners!. I love how they give andy a tough time always and he’s such a sport. But seriously Andy needs to stop touching his right ear all the time and also needs a wardrobe change, haha! Just kidding! Keep up the good work!

Silly and informative

9/10 for entertainment, 8/10 for running relevant information, 10/10 for being all about the running community
An entertaining podcast, structured more as a conversation than interview or lecture. They lightly cover a variety of running related topics, news, share life updates, and answer community questions.
I have enjoyed new TRC interview series even more.
These guys and gal are fun, even if they get carried away with teasing each other mercilessly.
