Bad Boy Running are a community born from a podcast that is sometimes about running. After a chance meeting at MDS presenters Jody Raynsford and David Hellard posed the question ‘if running is so fun then why aren’t running podcasts?’ Add Allie Bailey to the mix, and you have the podcast dream team. BBR celebrate all that is fun, fascinating, inspiring and weird in running. Fast forward almost three years, and BBR have one of the most varied and active communities on the internet, all runners, joggers and walkers who don’t take things too seriously and love the social side of the sport. Friends and guests of the podcast include everyone from world class endurance athletes and FKT holders to blind ultra runners and beer mile record holders. BBR believe that everyone is capable of extraordinary, and celebrate the inclusivity and social side of ultra running, as well as interviewing some of the most famous and infamous runners and adventurers in the world.
