A big thanks to Dave, Sally and Tracy for fabulous organisation and a great day.
And to a shout out to some of the stand holders I met, some of whom I hope will be coming on this podcast and sharing their expertise - so good to meet you Umberto from Absolute 360 who Edward Chapman told me makes the best Running socks which I now own, John from Mad Hatter Sports who specialise in swim run events, Martin and Sarah from Whythra Running tours who’s Arc 50 recce runs I’ll be joining in the autumn, James from Trench who’s foot cream I shall be trying out soon and Abichal who publishes the Ultra Marathon magazine.
I had my podcast recording kit there and I recorded eight short interviews with some amazing people from the running community. There is some background noise. So you’re going to hear from:
Dave Bettens who is running his first ultra this year - MudCrew’s south west traverse
Sian Longthorpe who as a guest speaker was going to share a transgender running story and is part of the Asics Frontrunner team
Becky Harris who is the big hand marshal at the Heartlands Parkrun
Craig Beall who is running the London Marathon for Tommys the leading UK Charity researching the causes and prevention of pregnancy complications, miscarriage, stillbirth, premature birth and neonatal death.
Janssen - who casually revealed as he was buying a book that on Friday he ran the Manchester to Liverpool 50 mile Trans-Pennine Way Ultra - this might be a Good Friday run as next year it’s on Good Friday April 7th
Kathryn Marsh - who went for a run in November 1st 2016 and has run everyday since and will be looking for people to run walk or cycle collectively 2022 miles on May 15th which will be day 2022 of Kathryn's running streak.
